Help: Portuguese qualifications to UK qualificationsWatch this thread
Also email the university you're interested in - most of them will be able to tell you what Portuguese qualifications you need.
well, strictly speaking, you cant take the supposed equivalence even if you spot any site mentioning so. I'm going through an application process and everything is dealt with your original grades. You can still use AS GUIDANCE some equivalences. i dont know much more than 18,19,20=A as its the only one i need to care about
Nevertheless, a rough approximation would be likely to be as follows:
18 19 20 - A
17 16 - B
15 14 - C
10-12 - D, E
so if I had studied till 9 year (3rd cycle) that means a level or gcse?
You would need to complete years 10-12 (upper secondary) to be equivalent to A-Level.
Once you have reached the level of Diploma Nível Secundário de Educação or Certificado Nível Secundário de Educação then that is equivalent to A Level and usually that is what is required to start to study for a degree.
There is a table on the University of Bradford's Portugal page which equates the Portuguese secondary education qualification into the UCAS Tariff system (which is used by UK Universities to explain entry requirements).
I hope that helps
