    I didn't think ANY did? Do you mean for a foundation course or an actual degree?

    The only circumstances where I can imagine anywhere would do that would be in the case of mature students who had alot of relevant experience in the area of their degree subject.

    As far as I know, there isnt anywhere that will let a 16 year old, straight from GCSEs in with JUST their GCSEs alone.
    GCSEs are nothing by comparrison to a degree, it would make no sense to do that.

    Could you perhaps be confusing this with GCSE equivelent access courses for Maths and English (ie for people who dont have GCSE English and maths at Grade C or above?)

    Some places will let you in with say 2 As levels in place of 1 A-level (alongside other A-levels) but thats all I can think of.

    Undergraduates applying for any of our Undergraduate Degrees, Foundation Degrees or HNC/D courses will typically need to have GCSE passes in 5 subjects at Grade C or above including English Language and Mathematics, (some courses require GCSE passes in other specified subjects, so do check the specific course for details. We also accept a pass in the Key Skills Qualification at Level 2 in place of GCSE English and Mathematics).

    In addition to meeting the above, for each of our undergraduate courses we typically desire a certain amount of UCAS Tariff points and the required amount is given on each entry of our online course search and in our prospectus. All qualifications achieved at a level comparable to GCE 'A' Level or BTEC Nationals can be included within this total.
    You can't go there with just GCSEs.

    What kind of teaching is there at a uni which requires EE to get in though? I mean, people who can only get EE surely wouldn't be able to cope with learning even 1% of a degree course, no?

    Yes... but for an entirely different reason than, say, TVU

    You can get onto a foundation degree course with just GCSEs and then top up, but this is only applicable to mature students, I think. I have found a few universities which let students in with just GCSEs, but the courses offered tend to be less traditional subjects.

    Actually... I know someone who has a degree who has no highers, only standard grades.


    They're in their 40s, and got in through adult learning (where life/work experience etc is taken into account), did a one year access course, then did their degree as normal.

    OP- I don't think there is any, TVU included. If you get AABB (I think) in AS, some Scottish universities will consider you (as its a four year degree as standard in Scotland), but even then, most will ask for A-Levels.

    you'd still have to take two A Levels though

    but they give EE offers to the best people who are already guaranteed to get all A's at A Level.
