We may look at individual GCSE results as is our current policy as part of our holistic assessment of an application, but this will be made clear in the individual GCSE entry requirements for each undergraduate programme we offer.
We are aware that any change to our stance on this issue would require giving potential applicants sufficient notice to make the correct GCSE choices.
We would therefore anticipate that any changes to our policy regarding the English Baccalaureate would only occur after sufficient notice had been given. GCSE Methods in Mathematics and Applications of Mathematics GCSE Methods in Mathematics and Applications of Mathematics will be considered in lieu of GCSE Mathematics, however applications will be considered based on the grades achieved in both subjects areas and where grades are different the application will be considered based on the lowest grade achieved.
