Top A levels
What the top universities expect:
There are some key steps students need to take in order to achieve the best chance of getting your chosen place.
Important Note: The following steps do NOT apply to all universities.
The top universities will check your GCSE/IGCSE (or equivalent) grades and the more A* grades you have the better.
You must get at least 90% in each of your AS modules.
Universities will check your predicted A Level results. These are based on your AS results.
e.g. If you have obtained above 90% in each module then you are likely to be predicted A* in A2. If you have below 90% your predicted grades will be based upon your modules (80% = A, etc)
The Personal Statement section of the UCAS form is very important because it gives you the chance to show the selectors how good you are and why they should select you from all the applications they receive.
The Personal Statement section of the UCAS form is the part where students have the chance to show what they are really like as people – make the most of this chance!
UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE EXAM
There are a number of university entrance exams, including:
Interviews for a place on a university course are a very important part of the selection process. They are your chance to convince the selectors that you are the right student for their course!
The interviewers are not trying to ‘trip you up’, they just want to see you and to hear you talk. They cannot tell how good your communication skills are just from your UCAS form – this is your chance to show them!
Universities such as Oxford and Cambridge, and all healthcare courses require you to attend an interview.

A- Levels are an internationally recognised qualification as well as being the preferred qualification by UK Universities for their depth and breadth.
They offer students the opportunity to experience the intellectual challenge and stimulation of studying subjects in much greater depth before they go to University.
At CSFC there is an interesting selection of subjects which can be taken in any combination . Each student has their own unique timetable which is tailored to meet their individual needs.
We offer two A-Level routes; 18 months (January intake) and 24 months (September intake).
In Year 1 students choose 4 AS subject choices and at Year 2 they will continue with 3 subjects for A2. During their studies students receive approximately 25 hours a week of scheduled class time, plus tutorials and study sessions. Students benefit from weekly test, frequent homework assignments and regular revision classes during the school holidays and weekend, if required.
Since 2007 100% of students applying for Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science have been successful in gaining university places for their chosen courses, as well as considerable success in gaining places to study other high demand course such as Engineering, Economics and Humanities.
