Entry Requirements

The standard requirements for A Levels is 5 GCSEs at Grade 5/​C or above as a minimum for humanities subjects and 6/​B in maths for all science subjects.

Each A Level had its own additonal entry requirement, please see below:

Grade 6/​B or above in Double Award Science or a single science and maths.

Need to re-sit? No problem. If you don’t achieve a Grade 4/​C in GCSE maths or English, you’ll resit the exams with us and we’ll help you prepare.

How The Course Will Be Assessed

This is a linear subject which means it is examined externally entirely at the end of year two. There will be end of year exams in June of your first year which will determine your progress and whether you can enter the second year. During the two years of study, you will be regularly assessed under test conditions to practise being able to understand and respond to the questions asked in the correct time allocation so that you are fully prepared for the final exams. There is an assessment calendar for A levels which includes timed assessment every 4 to 5 weeks. Feedback gained from these assessments will help you to develop your skills, target your revision and where necessary enable us to provide additional support.

Additional Information

Maths is an important subject for many careers and a requirement that sits alongside other subjects for study at a higher level for example, computing, physics, sciences, medicine.
