University Admissions officers of these universities are looking for: A minimum of one A*, and 2 A grades at A level; a good level of English - an IELTS qualification is necessary, at around Level 6 or 7 depending on the course applied for; excellent IGCSE results; excellent AS results; excellent A level predictions; evidence of genuine interest in your subject; engagement in competitions, reading, visits, work experience and extracurricular activities.

Mr. Lawrence emphasized that entering university, be it in 2020, 2021 or even 2023 is not something that starts in a few years’ time, but a process that needs to start now.
