How GCSE heavy are the univerisities?


In this post I have divided  all of the univerisities into categories depending on how GCSE heavy they are. Some universities may use GCSEs with other factors such as the UKCAT so they may not fit into the category suggested, for example, if you score incredibly highly in the UKCAT for Nottingham, there is more leeway for lower GCSE grades. Please with individual websites as this is a rough guide. Feel free to comment or contact me via email for advice.
