You will also need one of the following:

  • GCSE Biology grade B/grade 6
  • GCSE Double Science grades B, B/grades 6, 6
  • AS Level Biology grade B
  • Grade A in a Biology-related EPQ

You must also achieve a pass in the science practical assessment (if applicable).

A level contextual offer

We welcome applications from candidates who meet the contextual eligibility criteria and whose predicted grades are close to, or slightly below, the contextual offer level. The typical contextual offer is ABB including Biology and Chemistry, or AAB including Chemistry and another Science and GCSE Biology grade B.See if you're eligible.

IB typical offer

36 to include 5 at Higher Level in Biology and 5 at Higher Level in Chemistry, or 38 to include 5 at Higher Level in Chemistry and 5 at Higher Level in either Mathematics or Physics.

You will also need one of the following:

  • 6 at IB Standard Level in Biology
  • GCSE Biology grade B/grade 6
  • GCSE Double Science grades B, B/grades 6, 6
IB contextual offer

We welcome applications from candidates who meet the contextual eligibility criteria and whose predicted grades are close to, or slightly below, the contextual offer level. The typical contextual offer is 34 including 5 at Higher Level in Chemistry and Biology. See if you're eligible.

BTEC

We welcome applications from students taking BTECs as long as essential subject requirements are met.

Revised content:

A level typical offer

AAB including Biology and Chemistry, or AAA including Chemistry and either Mathematics, Physics or Statistics.

A level additional information

Applicants who are not taking Biology at A Level must have one of the following:

  • GCSE Biology grade B/6
  • GCSE Combined Science grades BB/66
  • AS Level Biology grade B
  • A Biology-related EPQ with grade A

You must also achieve a pass in the science practical assessment of your A Levels (if applicable).

A level contextual offer

We welcome applications from candidates who meet the contextual eligibility criteria and whose predicted grades are close to, or slightly below, the contextual offer level. The typical contextual offer is ABB including Biology and Chemistry, or AAB including Chemistry and either Mathematics, Physics or Statistics alongside GCSE/AS/EPQ Biology as above. See if you're eligible.

IB typical offer

34 to include 5 in Higher Level Biology and Chemistry, or 36 to include 5 in Higher Level Chemistry and 5 in Higher Level Mathematics or Physics

IB additional information

Applicants who are not taking Higher Level Biology must have one of the following:

  • Standard Level Biology at grade 6
  • GCSE Biology grade B/6
  • GCSE Combined Science grades BB/66
IB contextual offer

We welcome applications from candidates who meet the contextual eligibility criteria and whose predicted grades are close to, or slightly below, the contextual offer level. The typical contextual offer is 32 including 5 in Higher Level Biology and Chemistry, or 34 including 5 in Higher Level Chemistry and 5 in Higher Level Mathematics or Physics, alongside Standard Level/GCSE Biology as above. See if you're eligible.

BTEC

We welcome applications from students taking BTECs as long as essential subject requirements are met. We are happy to consider applicants who are studying BTECs alongside A Level Chemistry and Biology.
