Will taking more than 3 A-levels improve my chances?
Our typical offer is A*AA at A-level, achieved in one academic year. Quality rather than quantity is what tutors will be looking for.
Tutors will select applicants of high academic ability and potential, but other factors will come into play during short-lising and selection (see the selection criteria for Medicine).
We also recognise that some students are restricted by school policies to the number of subjects they can follow.
Applicants are of course welcome to study for additional A-levels, if they wish to do so out of personal preference, and if this would not compromise their performance in other key academic areas. However, applicants should be aware that tutors may specify the A-level subjects that are included within the A*AA offer when more than three A-level subjects are being studied, so applicants should always aim for high grades in all of their A-levels.
