What do we mean by 'subject overlap'?

Please note that when we say “subject overlap” we mean for example, AP Calculus AB and Grade 12 Calculus are both Mathematics and therefore overlap. Similarly, AP Microeconomics and AP Macroeconomics are both Economics and therefore overlap. Where applicants have taken overlapping subjects, percentage scores from only one of the overlapping courses will count towards the typical requirements listed above.

Subject Specific Requirements

No specific Grade 12 or AP courses will be required for courses that do not have specific A Level, GCSE, IB HL or IB SL subject requirements.

Specific Grade 12 courses or AP courses may be required for courses that have specific A Level, GCSE, IB HL or IB SL requirements. We can also accept College Board AP Tests to meet subject requirements in lieu of course scores.

Subject specific requirements can typically be met through relevant courses or tests at the following scores:

A Level Requirement Canadian Provincial Grade 12 Class and AP Course Percentage Requirement AP Test Requirement
A* 90% 5
A 90% 5
B 85% 4
GCSE Requirement Canadian Provincial Percentage Requirement
A* 85%
A 80%
B 70%

Not all Canadian provincial Grade 12 Maths courses are acceptable for entry to Warwick Mathematics Institute. We encourage students at Canadian high schools to contact us to discuss their Maths education in advance of applying to Warwick Mathematics Institute. Furthermore, all courses in Warwick Mathematics Institute will require STEP, MAT or TMUA in addition to specific scores in acceptable Maths courses or a score of 5 in the AP Calculus BC test.

These tests are available internationally, and do not require travel to the UK. For further information visit;


To find out more about subject specific requirements email the North America team at northamerica@warwick.ac.uk and detail:

  • A list of Grade 12 courses, AP course, and AP tests (if applicable) that you plan to take, are taking or have completed
  • The province that you're studying in
  • The name of your high school
  • Undergraduate course(s) or subject areas that you’re interested in applying to
Non-Standard Qualifications

Although these are Warwick's typical entry requirements, we may be able to consider students studying other qualification mixes. To find out if you are eligible for consideration please email northamerica@warwick.ac.uk with your qualifications, your degree programme of interest and information about the qualifications/subjects available at your school.

Postgraduate Courses

For Bachelor's degrees from Canada, depending on the grading scale of your institution, we would typically consider an overall GPA of 3.3, numeric grade of 77 or above, or B+ as equivalent to a UK 2:1.

Should you wish to check on the specific equivalencies for your institution, please contact the North America Team.
