The minimum general requirement for entry to a full-time two year A level programme is:
- Seven passes in GCSE, mainly at grade A/7 (including English and Maths at 6 or above) for students wishing to study four A levels.
- Five passes in GCSE at grade C/4 or above (including English and Maths) for students wishing to study three A levels.
- Four passes in GCSE at grade C/4 or above (including English and Maths) for students wishing to study two A levels and a single BTEC/CTEC, or one A level with a double BTEC/CTEC.
Passes at level 2 in qualifications such as OCR National Certificates will be accepted as equivalent to GCSE, where appropriate, for entry to BTEC/CTEC courses.
Many A level subjects require particular entry requirements in addition to the above. Please see the individual subject entries here.
