      Applicants offering the Apolytirion would normally be expected to offer an overall mark of at least 17 out of 20, and additionally have at least two GCE A levels.

      The School in general does not expect specific subjects offered at GCE A level, but it does prefer `traditional' academic A level subjects, rather than `non-traditional' subjects such as Accounting and Business Studies, etc. However, a `non-traditional' subject would be considered, but only in combination with other `traditional' academic subjects. An A level (or equivalent) in your first/native language may not be counted.

      At the course requirement it says "No specific subjects are required at A level, but candidates will normally have an level Mathematics (or equivalent). Those candidates who do not have A level Mathematics (or equivalent) should be prepared to develop their mathematical skills and will be provided with support including tailored first year courses in mathematics and statistics", hence, AL Maths is not a must, but most of the candidates normally have AL in Maths.
