We recognise how important it is that everyone has the chance to benefit from opportunities offered by university education. We also know that not everyone achieves GCSE qualifications when they first leave school.
If you do not have GCSEs and the course you are interested in has a mandatory GCSE requirement, we accept Functional Skills instead as long as they are passed at the level required. This is usually grade C or 4.
Functional Skills is a widely recognised and widely available programme that supports people to gain an English or maths qualification. There are many providers across the UK where you can gain the qualification in person or online.

We also accept equivalent tests from Equivalency Testing - the UK's leading equivalency testing provider, offering English, maths and science courses and examinations.
