Biology, Chemistry and Physics 

In order to ensure that students who apply for A Level Biology, Chemistry and Physics at the College are successful in their study of these subjects, the College requires that each student complete a single diagnostic assessment.

The assessment is also referred to if a student has borderline grades for the course entry requirements.

The assessment will take place between Thursday 29th June and Tuesday 4th July and no specific preparation will be required.
