5 Cs to get in, though I know some people with less than that. To stay on in Year 13 you need EEE.
Seems to me that for most schools its 5 C's (including maths and english)
Going by this thread...
A pulse. But even then they probably made exceptions.
6 A*s - C. B in the subject for next year. But you need CDD to go onto A2.
General entry requirements are 7 Cs, but you have to have at least a few Bs, As or A*s. Then you need Bs in the subjects that you want to take. Quite high requirements actually... it's just a sixth form college but it's very oversubscribed.
I think it's 3 Bs and 2 Cs. Although that's supposed to be rather flexible.
What about if you didn't take a certain subject for GCSE that you want to do for a level? I didn't take 3/4 of my A levels before and got AAB in them...
You need the specified grade from the prospectus to take each subjects, and it varies from subject to subject. Eg FMaths requires and A in GCSE maths, while Maths requires a B at GCSE.
A couple of subjects don't require specific grades in any GCSE, such as Psychology and Sociology.
Generally people aren't admitted onto any course without above average GCSEs anyway though at my SF.
We need at least 5 A*-C with Bs in the subejcts your taking, so you could get BBCCC if you wanted to take art, graphic design, enlgish lit and english lang, your Cs should be in maths and english although these rules arnt really strict as i know people with less than 5 A*-C
At my (grammer) school you need:
- B average
- B in Eng. Lang.
- B in Maths
- Meet entry requirements for subject (most are A but a couple are B, to take Accelerated maths (maths A2 in Yr12, FM in Yr 13 if you continue) you need A*)
But if you are an external candidate you really need more than this 'cos they pick based on GCSE results until the places are filled.
For my school you have to get 5 A*-C grades, and including a B in the four subjects you want to take (except for maths where you need an A)...So really after you have the four B grades in the subjects then you only need one more grade to get A*-C to get in!
They are quite low but it is a good sixth form
Good luck in your results people

Wow i didnt realise how varied the entry requirements were for A-levels, all colleges i applied to followed pretty much the same requirements. Anyway mine were:
5 GCSE's at grade C or above, with atleast a grade C in the subjects you wish to continue on with.
You have to get 5Cs to get into the sixth form if you already go to the school (like me) or 5Bs if you're coming in from outside.
Technically 5A*s to C grades, but really 4Bs and minimum Cs in English Maths AND Science. You need to have a B at GCSE to study the subject at AS.
it is 5Cs or above. if you want to pick 4 ASs then you need a C in english language AND lit and then at least a C in maths. if you fail any of those subjects then you're only allowed to do three subjects and your fourth is resit, and if you fail all then you have to do a 3 year course where you're spending the first year as resit year 11 student (just in 6th form though - i think they call it the post-16 class).
though, in all fairness. they rarely ever stick to these rules. they offered my brother an unconditional place based on his results and the only subject he was predicted to pass (C and above) was business studies (with a B).
to get into year 13 you only need EEEE, 90% attendence and a good reference from all your teachers plus your form tutor.
