Applicants taking A-Levels will be offered a place conditional on achieving A*A*A to include Maths and Physics with the A*s in Maths, Physics or Further Maths. IBs will be required to get 7s in both Maths and Physics at higher level, 6 in a third higher level subject, and 40 overall. We welcome applications from students taking other equivalent qualifications — conditional offers for such applicants will be made at an equivalent level to those taking A-Levels.
All candidates are required to register for, and take, the Physics Aptitude Test (PAT). Candidates who do not take the test will not be called for interview (other than in exceptional circumstances).
Applicants who are predicted less than A*A*A (or equivalent) will normally only be shortlisted for interview in exceptional circumstances, such as where education has been interrupted for some reason such as illness. If an applicant has had an interrupted education this should be made clear in the school statement and such cases will be given full consideration. However, all candidates will be offered a place based on achieving A*A*A (or equivalent).
