Entry Requirements

The LAE curriculum is academically rigorous and challenging. Accordingly, places will be offered to applicants who are assessed as being most likely to meet our minimum entry requirements and who will benefit from the opportunities offered at LAE. To meet our minimum entry requirements, all applicants must demonstrate that they are likely to:

  • achieve at least five A*/A GCSE grades (grades 7-9 in English and mathematics)
  • achieve a grade 6 or above in both GCSE English and mathematics
  • achieve at least an A grade (grade 7-9 in English and mathematics) in the GCSE subjects they wish to continue to study at A level in Year 12 **
  • meet specific course requirements outlined in the prospectus and published on the LAE website each academic year

Notes:

  • it is possible to study economics, history, geography, psychology or PRE in Year 12 if the subject was not studied at GCSE;
  • it is very unlikely that French, Spanish or Mandarin can be studied in Year 12 if the subject was not studied at GCSE;
  • in some cases, a minimum grade in a relevant supporting GCSE subject may be required for an offer-holder to be enrolled for the study of a particular subject at A level, as specified in the prospectus and published on the LAE website.
