Entry Requirements

Click on the links below to see the individual subject entry requirements. Students must achieve 5 GCSE qualifications at grade 4 and above to study a level 3 course.

Places on oversubscribed courses will be awarded to students who fully meet the entry requirements on a first come first served basis at enrolment.

Students who do not meet the Level 3 entry requirements but achieve a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grades 4, 3 (5 at grade 3 preferred) can enrol on a 1 year level 2 course with the aim of progressing onto a level 3 pathway at the end of year 12.

All students who do not achieve GCSE English and Maths at grade C or above are required to retake these qualifications in the sixth form. At Swanshurst Sixth Form, lessons in these subjects will form part of a student’s timetable.
