Points System for Pathways

  • The entry requirements for each pathway are based upon the Department for Education Point Scores which are allocated to GCSE and BTEC grades as follows 

  • A*/Distinction * = 58 points

  • A/Distinction = 52 points

  • B/Merit = 46 points

  • C/Pass = 40 points

  • You should look at your targets and current working grades and work out your best 8 and best 6 subjects. Convert your likely grades to points and then add them up to see what your score from your best 6 and 8 subjects is likely to be.
