Your GCSE Average is the points system we use to determine the course(s) best suited to you. (Please note specific grades are needed for particular courses), it is worked out by adding together your six highest GCSE grades including English and Maths. Each grade equates to different amounts, as shown below:

A* = 8
A = 7
B = 6
C = 5
D = 4
E = 3
F = 2
G = 1
U = 0

 
Leyton Sixth Form College: 2017-18 Entry Requirements Level 3 Courses
NB: All A levels will be linear from September 2017
Maths and English GCSE will be graded 1-9. Grade 5 will become the threshold of a ‘good pass’ and students should aim for this as the equivalent of the old ‘C’ grade.*
