If you have just, or very recently completed your GCSEs and not quite got the grades you require for our A-Level and vocational programmes, you should still speak to us!
Our one year foundation programme provides a direct progression route onto our A-Level and vocational Level 3 programmes. In the foundation year you would take a range of GCSE subjects which will complement the A-Level subjects we offer and enable you to smoothly transition from GCSE up to A-Level / Level 3.
There are a number of combinations on the GCSE programme, all of which include English Language and/or Maths. At the end of the foundation year you should have a set of 5 GCSEs which meet our usual entry requirements. Here is an example:
Student A has a grade 4 in Maths and 4 x grade 3. They would need to take English Language and then 3 other GCSE subjects. The mix of subjects available will depend on the GCSE grades you already have and some other combination rules. At the end of the foundation year, you should have a set of GCSEs which meet our standard entry requirement so you can continue onto your desired programme with us (subject to the usual entry requirements in individual subjects).
