Why are English and Maths GCSE so important?

We know that success at advanced level study, and beyond in both the workplace and at university, is heavily dependent on you having strong skills with both English and Maths. You would struggle to do well if you did not have these basic building blocks in place before you start with us, and they are therefore part of our basic entry requirements. Those that do not have at least a grade C/grade 4 in both will be required to retake the subject they achieved a grade D/grade 3 in. Even if you do have a Grade C, you may find that you need to work on particular elements of your skills in these subjects with us, because the content of A levels has become more demanding in these areas. You will be able to do this with our online support materials.
