To begin Advanced level courses a minimum of four GCSEs at grade 5 is expected together with a grade C or 5 in the subject to be studied. In subjects that are ‘new' at advanced level or where a student may not have had the opportunity to study a particular subject at GCSE a student's general level of academic success at GCSE will be considered and discussed before a student embarks upon a course of study. For some revised new A level specifications, with a significant level of mathematical assessment incorporated within the qualification, a minimum GCSE grade 4 in mathematics will be required to enable a student to begin the course.
