How Will I Be Assessed

This course requires a good level of written English, so we ask for applicants to hold either a GCSE in English at grade C / 4, or an equivalent (e.g. Functional Skills Level 2).
Please note that progression onto some higher education programmes will require GCSE Maths and English passes and Functional Skills level 2 Maths and English may not be accepted. Please check the individual university entry requirements for more information.
