Are alternatives to a fourth AS level acceptable?
Yes, in asking for a fourth AS level, UCL was signalling its support for a broadening of the post-16 curriculum. UCL will be flexible in considering other qualifications. Alternatives that have been indicated to date as acceptable include:
- a GCSE in a foreign language such as Japanese (studied from scratch concurrent with A-levels);
- an IB subject at Standard Level;
- a Scottish Higher.
A GCSE in a subject that is an established part of the curriculum (e.g. Economics) will not normally be acceptable, even if this is taken at the same time as A levels. If no fourth AS level or alternative is offered, applicants should explain why this is the case; we may in such circumstances make an offer requiring higher A level grades.
