A-level and Pre-U Offers for the 2009-10 Admissions Round17th March 2009
For the next Admissions round (2009-10), Trinity's standard A-level offer will be A*AA. The A* will be required in a subject relevant to an applicant's proposed Cambridge course, but the vast majority of our A*AA offers will afford applicants the opportunity of achieving the A* in one of two or more A-level subjects. The standard offer may be varied in a limited number of special cases. Detailed research into the A-level module scores of previous successful applicants to Trinity suggests that more than 90% of those receiving offers in January 2010 will go on to meet the conditions we set, and that A*AA offers will have a neutral impact as regards school type. For applicants taking Pre-U examinations, a D2 mark will be treated as equivalent to an A* at A-level.
