Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone!
    I applied to UCL to study French and History and I got an offer! But I am not sure what to expect. I would like to ask if anyone knows how good do I have to be in French? Do they expect me to be completely fluent? I have studied French for 7 years but I feel like my language skills are not that great. Please help me. Thank you.

    Normally Unis give conditional offers whereby you have to meet grade requirements to gain entry, I assume this is the same with yourself?

    As long as you obtain the grade they want you to get at French, presumably A or B for UCL, you will be good enough. You will not be expected to be fluent, it is highly likely that you will be at the same level as most other people on your course.
