To calculate your score, take your best eight GCSE qualifications which must include GCSE English Language and GCSE Maths. To work out each point score, add them all together and then divide the total by eight.

BTEC Firsts, CiDA, DiDA, Functional Skills Level 1/2, GCSE Short Courses, OCR Vocational & ECDL qualifications are not counted towards Average GCSE Scores however we do take them into consideration when assessing overall academic achievement and your suitability for BTEC and other vocational courses. 

There may be other requirements you need to meet, in order to enter EN on the desired programme you wish to study. If at any time you have any questions or queries please e-mail admissions@eastnorfolk.ac.uk. We will be happy to advise you further.
