The University of Warwick is to significantly reduce degree entry requirements for hundreds of local students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Under its Warwick Scholars programme, announced on 14 May, up to 500 eligible applicants a year will qualify for courses even if their A-level results are four grades below Warwick’s standard offer.

This would mean that students with three C grades at A-level would be eligible for courses which usually require one A and two Bs, although a spokesperson for Warwick told HE it was more likely that offers would still be slightly higher than that.
