    Have you heard anything since?
    I recieved an offer (or an email telling me they are going to offer me a place when the admissions secretary gets back from holiday) a couple of days ago after my application was "handed to the Dean" for further inspection.

    I was honest in mine and said that the timetabling structure didn't allow me to study both french and history, and that at the time I wanted to do history at uni

    This has kinda put my mind at ease reading other people's posts, I was about to choose French at GCSE but didn't really enjoy it, I was about to ask my school if I could sit a GCSE on my native language but the furthest it's got to being introduced as a GCSE is on online e-petition Which I guess can be my excuse, as well as not knowing that I would need to choose a GCSE 5 years before just to get into UCL, hopefully I do get accepted because I'd love to get into UCL.

    I wouldn't worry about it anyway. I haven't got a language GCSE and I have emailed UCL and they said that you can take optional language modules in your degree, or take evening classes in order to meet the requirements whilst you're there, and that not having a language GCSE does not make you a less competitive applicant.

    EDIT: but that email a few pages back has kind of scared me. Similar to you, I was about to do French at GCSE, but decided not to... I'm hoping that my reason for not taking it can simply be that I didn't know it would be a requirement... eek!

    Just found this whilst looking for stuff on Esperanto.

    The Welsh Joint Education Committee - WJEC- also offers a series of exams for 'Welsh for Adults' at:
    Entry Level, Foundation Level and Intermediate Level. Intermediate level is equivalent to GCSE. There is also a 'Higher' level, equivalent to A level.
