Students outside the student number control in 2014-15: Exemptions list
The Government has requested that HEFCE no longer places controls on the recruitment to higher education (HE) of students with very high grades prior to entry. From 2014-15 onward, this group of students is defined as those with ABB grades or above at A-level, or certain equivalent qualifications and grades. Students holding certain combinations of qualifications equivalent to ABB at A-level will also be exempt from the control.
This is the complete list of A-level grades and equivalences. The list is available to download in full, as an interactive spreadsheet or by qualification types.
