1. An individual G.C.S.E short-course will not count as part of the six subjects needed. However, if you take two short-courses at G.C.S.E. and achieve an A grade or above in both of them, then this will count as one full G.C.S.E. An A* in one short course, and a B grade in another will not be sufficient to count as one full G.C.S.E.

2. If an external candidate achieves less than 2 A grades in double science, we will ask their school’s Examination Officer to complete a form to provide evidence of their performance in each Science subject
