|Access to HE Diploma||D: 45 credits||Access Qualification in relevant area of engineering or physical science. Must include 45 level 3 credits at Distinction including 30 credits in maths and chemistry. Grade B or 6 in GCSE Physics or Dual Award Science required if Physics not offered at a higher level.|
|Scottish Higher||AAA at Advanced Higher including Mathematics and Chemistry. Grade B in Higher Physics required if not offered at Advanced Higher. Two Highers at the required grade (in different subjects to those offered at Advanced Higher) may replace a third Advanced Higher. Scottish qualifications can be taken in more than one sitting.|
|Scottish Advanced Higher||AAA||AAA at Advanced Higher including Mathematics and Chemistry. Grade B in Higher Physics required if not offered at Advanced Higher. Two Highers at the required grade (in different subjects to those offered at Advanced Higher) may replace a third Advanced Higher. Scottish qualifications can be taken in more than one sitting.|
|International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme||34 points||34 points with Mathematics and Chemistry at Higher Level grade 6 or above. Physics required at Standard Level grade 5 or above if not offered at Higher Level.|
|Extended Project||We welcome applications from students offering an Extended Project and value the skills of research and independent learning that it is designed to develop. If you offer an Extended Project, it will be taken into account as part of your application profile, but we will not usually include it in offer conditions for this degree programme.|
|Leaving Certificate - Higher Level (Ireland) (first awarded in 2017)||Candidates will normally only be considered for foundation year entry. All applications will be considered on an individual basis.|
|Cambridge International Pre-U Certificate - Principal||D3, D3, M2||D3,D3,M2 in Principal Subjects including Mathematics and Chemistry and at least one of Further Mathematics, Physics or Biology. GCSE Physics or Double Award Science (minimum Grade B or 6) required if Physics not offered at a higher level.|
If you don’t think you will have the exact Mathematics and Science qualifications referred to in our entry requirements by the time you need them, you may not be sure what to do. We hope that the following will help. •If you already have, or are taking, the A level (or equivalent) Maths and Science qualifications specified in our entry requirements, you should apply for stage 1 (First Year) entry of the engineering degree course in which you are interested •If you have a Maths qualification but will not have it at A level (or equivalent) when you start your degree, you should apply for the relevant degree with Foundation Year. We may give you the opportunity to take the Newcastle University Pre-Entry Maths Course* and the option to start in First Year if we think that this will be the best route for you •If you have A level Maths (or equivalent) already but not at the required grade, you should contact us for advice. We may decide that you could be considered for Foundation Year entry, or it may be that our engineering courses are not the best options for you •If you will not have the equivalent of an A level in the Science subject (if any) required, you should apply for the relevant degree with Foundation Year. If you are still not sure, do not worry. Whatever you apply for, our Admissions Tutors will help you decide which is the best route for you. They may therefore make you an offer for a different course (e.g. Foundation Year entry instead of First Year entry) from the one you apply for. (*The Newcastle University Pre-Entry Maths Course aims to provide the requisite mathematical skills and concepts needed on our engineering degree courses and to prepare students for the modes of learning they will encounter. The materials for the course are delivered electronically and include opportunities to practise your skills. You study the materials in your own time and, when you are ready, you book your exam with the Engineering School to which you have applied. A fee of £150 is payable at the time of booking the exam or shortly before the date set for examination.)
