    You’ll need 4 GCSEs at grades 9–3 (A*–D) including English Language and Maths - one of either English Language or Maths needs to be grade 9–4 (A*–C).

    You’ll also need experience of the subjects you’ve chosen, which we’ll assess before you start to make sure you are able to study well at this level.


    Assessment is dependent on the GCSE studied and will either be all exams or a mixture of exams and coursework. This will be discussed with you at your interview.
