While we look at all the information in your application to St Andrews, the entry requirements are an important part. So long as you meet the entry requirements, we will read your application and give it equal consideration.
Our entry requirements are set at different levels so we can take into account the context you achieved them in. You can find out which requirements you will need to meet using our qualifications indicator. You can also find out more about how we assess which requirements you need in academic qualifications explained.
St Andrews has three levels of entry requirements:
- Standard entry grades:
Unless you are a widening access student, you will need these grades to be considered.
- Minimum entry grades:
If you are a widening access student, you will need these grades to be considered.
- Gateway entry grades:
If you are a widening access student, you may also be eligible for a gateway programme. You will need these grades to be considered.
Be sure to read the specific entry requirements for the subject you are applying to.
Each subject will list the standard, minimum and Gateway entry requirements for Highers, A-Levels and IB. If you are studying a different qualification, look at the Scottish entry requirements.
