Cambridge University raises bars for entry to A*AA scores in A levels

All applicants to Cambridge University will normally need at least A*AA in their A-levels from next year, colleges have agreed.
The change to the standard offer from AAA is subject to review but may be increased to more than one A* for science subjects within a few years.

The more prestigious universities have been saying for some time that they find it hard to distinguish between the best candidates.

Last year Cambridge had so many applicants with at least three As that it had to reject more than 5,400 of them.
