Consideration maybe given to extended projects and Higher Sports Leaders Awards for borderline cases. For the GCSE, the pass grades are A, B and C. For Ordinary Level examinations taken after 1975 and the pass grades are also A, B and C. A pass at Grade 1 in the CSE will be accepted on the same basis as a pass at Ordinary Level.

We welcome the Advanced Diploma and will offer on the same points as A levels with specific requirements as stated on course pages.
