    Hello,My name is Vladislavs Lasinskis and I'm currently 16 and go to college, I study subjects: maths, further maths and biology, as well as I will just take the Russian a level exam as I have quite a big proficiency in it, it's the second language I learnt. Further more my native language is Latvian but I'm also basically native in English and Russian too.My GCSE results were:Russian-A* Maths- ADouble science -ABEnglish literature -CFrench-CArt-CReligious studies-CMusic-DHistory-D(1 mark of a C)English language-E( my coursework was really bad as I did it when I just basically came to England knowing barely any English) In exam I gotten a CICT- distinction
    Then I want to say that as for my own prediction I will be getting in my a levels( A/A* in Russian, A/A* in maths, A in further maths and lastly B in biology).
    I personally want to study at university of Helsinki and something with maths(e.g maths, economics, finance.. Something like that)
    I was wondering how would I be able to apply as with my qualifications and if I'm even eligible. I'm asking this because i tried applying but it doesn't include a levels as one of the qualifications, or say any requirements for these courses.
    Thank you

    You're best off contacting the university's international office rather than asking on here; chances are someone doing A-Levels will have applied before.

    The University of Helsinki doesn't offer any undergraduate degrees taught in English (most are taught in Finnish, some in Swedish). You can find English-taught degrees using this database: http://www.studyinfinland.fi/what_to...ammes_database
