If you have studied for a new GCSE for which you will be awarded a numerical grade then you will need to achieve a grade 4 or above.

English requirements

If English is not your first language we will require an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with an overall score of 6.0 and at least 5.5 or higher in each component: reading, writing, listening and speaking. An alternative approved Secure English Language Test (SELT) can also be considered if the applicant's element scores are equivalent to those required for IELTS.
