Entry Requirements

No previous knowledge is required. Students who apply to study these courses with us will be invited to attend a session at the college to complete an online assessment. This will show us which level you are ready to study at.


There are two assessments for these courses: a calculator paper and a non-calculator paper.  Exams at Entry Level 3 are paper based; exams at Level 1 and Level 2 are online. All exams will take place during the evening.


Learners will attend weekly lessons in college. This course may incorporate an element of live remote lessons where appropriate. It is recommended that you have access to a PC, laptop or other suitable device.

Learners also benefit from access to the college library during our evening opening times, including computers, study stations, print-based and electronic learning materials, printers and scanners.


You can progress to the next level qualification. These qualifications may support learners to progress into or within employment or further education.
