IGCSE Grades Needed to Study A Level

At Wolsey Hall Oxford we want all our students to succeed in their chosen subjects. Our experience has shown that for students to secure good A Level grades that allow them to proceed to higher education or into employment then a sound knowledge in relevant subjects at IGCSE Level is required.

With this in mind, we set minimum IGCSE grade requirements for each of our A Level courses which we have detailed in the table below. Please note, to be accepted onto any Wolsey Hall Oxford A Level course you must have secured a GCSE/IGCSE at Grade C or 4 in both English Language and Maths.
