UCAS points: 112 - preferred subjects include Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics
A-level: BBC - preferred subjects include Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics
International Baccalaureate: 30 points
Students studying more than one science subject may receive a lower offer.
We seek to admit students who have the potential to make good scientists and accept that qualifications are not the only indicator of future potential. Typical offers also include:
- A-level grades BB plus 2 AS-levels at grade C (equivalent to 280 UCAS tariff points for 2016 entry, recalculated on the same grade equivalence for 2017 entry as 112 points*).
- 1 12-unit vocational A-level grade BB plus 1 A-level or 2 AS-levels at grade C
- other recognised qualifications eg BTEC Nationals or Scottish qualifications (equivalent to 280 UCAS points based on September 2016 entry UCAS points calculation*).
*A new UCAS Tariff point system is being introduced for students applying to start university in September 2017, which uses a qualification’s size and grades to calculate total Tariff points under a brand new system. Therefore the Tariff points for 2017 entry look very different from 2016 entry - the 2017 BBC equivalent for this course will be 112 UCAS points for 2017. Please visit the UCAS website
for more information.
If your combination of qualifications doesn't match our typical offer, please contact our admissions tutor.
Specific entry requirements
A-Level: You must have studied science post-16, either at A-level or equivalent. Preferred A-level subjects include Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Human Biology and Physics
GCSE: Mathematics, English Language and Double Integrated Science (or equivalent) at grade C minimum
You must have studied science post-16, either at A-level or equivalent qualification. If you do not have a background in science, we encourage you to consider our Life Sciences foundation year, taught at Abingdon and Witney College.
