Every sixth form college has entry requirements for each of its courses, which ensure that you are well prepared for the demands of the courses you want to study. The exact grades you need will depend on the level and nature of the courses you are applying for, but in summary:
The basic requirement for admission to year 12 is:
A level: 5 or more GCSEs at grade 4+ (or merit at BTEC level 2), usually including English (Language or Literature) and Maths.
Level 3 Vocational: 4 or more GCSEs at grade 4+ (or merit at BTEC level 2), usually including English (Language or Literature) and Maths.
Level 2 Vocational: 4 or more GCSE’s at grade 3 or above. To ensure you are on the right course, there may also be an entrance assessment or task to secure your place on these courses.
Sport Development with Chelsea Football Academy: The number and level of GCSE’s required will depend on the level of entry you are applying for. In addition you will be required to have a skills based trial with the Chelsea team.
Students who do not have both Maths and English GCSE, but meet other requirements for their courses will have to retake Maths or English.
In addition, subjects have their own requirements. Students who do not meet these criteria are likely to find the course too challenging.
Please take some time to read the entry requirements of your chosen subject carefully.
