Some of the top academic universities (often belonging to the Russell group) will ask for very high A Level grades – AAB or higher – for most courses.

Because of the assumed connection between your GCSE and A Level results, it’ll be down to you to prove you’re able to achieve top grades. Bs and Cs at GCSE are suggestive of Cs and Ds at A Level – which won’t be enough to get into some universities.

The more competitive the university and course, the higher the number of high-achieving students with top GCSE marks applying.
