The number of subjects you can take will depend on your average points score. This is the average of your best 8 GCSE subjects. Please note that BTECs are not used in this calculation. Each GCSE is given a score (see table below on left). For example, a student with A, A, B, B, B, B, C,D has 362 points and an average point score of 45.25 (362 divided by 8).
