Entry route 2 –

Performance based admission If applicants do not meet the academic requirements for direct entry, they can apply for the programme via the performance based admission route. To be eligible to register, applicants must:

  • have passed at least four separate subjects at GCSE or GCE O level, with grades A to C, or the equivalent; and
  • satisfy the University of London English Language Requirements.

To be admitted onto the full BSc programme, applicants must:

  • pass both Introduction to Programming I and either Numerical OR Discrete Mathematics with a weighted average of 40% or above; Where students achieve a mark of 50% or higher in the coursework element for both modules, they will be admitted onto the full BSc programme and permitted to register for further modules in the next study session, subject to any relevant progression rules.

Where students achieve a mark below 49% in the coursework element for one or both modules, they may continue to the final assessment. If students achieve a pass in both modules overall, they will be admitted onto the full BSc programme and permitted to register for further modules in the next available session, subject to any relevant progression rules. Students on the performance based admission route will have three attempts to pass each module. This route helps applicants to develop the necessary skills to complete the full BSc Computer Science programme successfully.
