Entry requirements
  • To study 3 A Levels you’ll need at least 5 GCSE’s at grades 9-4 (A*-C) including GCSE English at Grade 4 (C) or above and Maths at grade 6 (B) or above
  • To study 4 A Levels you’ll need at least 6 GCSE’s at grades 9-6 (A*-C) including GCSE English and Maths at grade 4 (C) or above

If you have a grade 5 on a higher paper then you may be able to study A Level Maths following the successful completion of an assessment at enrolment.

Applicants with predicted GCSE grades 1 or 2 points below the entry requirement for an A Level:

If your predicted grades do not meet the entry requirements for either 1 or 2 of your chosen A Level subject choices, don’t worry we will still make you a conditional offer. We advise that you think about a second choice of course as a back-up plan. You can meet with us for a supportive, friendly and impartial discussion to look at other courses that Nottingham College has to offer. For more information contact High Pavement Sixth Form admissions by telephone on 0115 9100 100 or email at feadmissions@nottinghamcollege.ac.uk

Applicants who choose 4 subjects but only have the entry requirements to study 3:

If your predicted grades do not meet the entry requirements to study 4 A Level subjects, don’t worry we will still make you a conditional offer for all 4. At your ‘Get Ready for College’ day you will undertake tasters in your subjects and at this point you can discuss your options with subject staff at the event, to help you finalise your subject choices. Final A Level choices however will be made at enrolment in August when your GCSE results are confirmed.

Progression

Choose to follow with a related higher education course or employment, as universities and employers from many different sectors are in strong support of core maths qualifications. The course will help you retain, deepen and extend your mathematics to be better prepared for university-level study and employment.
