The marking scales used to assess performance in school-level qualifications vary significantly between type of qualification, country and individual subject areas.

Successful candidates will be required to achieve the equivalent of a very good UK bachelor degree. Individual module/subject grades (including resits) will be considered.
Percentage marking systems: the marking scale used in percentage-based grading systems varies widely between countries, subjects and institutions.
