Russell Group universities still undecided on T levels

The majority of Russell Group universities are yet to decide whether they will accept T levels as entry qualifications for undergraduate courses, Tes can reveal.

Overall, 16 of the 22 Russell Group members that responded to Tes said they had not yet finalised their policy on T levels. 

However, five universities – Oxford, Liverpool, Newcastle, Warwick and Durham – said that they would accept T levels for at least some of their degrees.

A University of Oxford spokesperson said: ”One of the advantages of the admissions process at Oxford is that each application is considered individually, on its own merits. Tutors will review qualifications, the performance on any relevant admissions test, the personal statement, the academic reference and predicted grades for any future examinations, as well the interview if the candidate is invited to one.”
