      Most students in Secondary education in Europe spend 6 years in it, not 4 like our GSCEs, so you will need A levels to compete with them.

      Yes, but you do think they'll accept just GCSE's?
      GCSE's mean nothing internationally.
      You need A levels to compete, as that is on a par with international leaving school qualifications,- not GCSE's.

      A very very merry Christmas to you, old timer. Hopefully the turkey will exceed your expectations. Maybe.

      Ok let's put it that way. I do not celebrate Christmas as I do have a bit different cultural/religious believes.
      You're clearly applying for Law in Reading, therefore you most probably British teen doing his A2.
      Sitting on TSR generally commenting on **** doing lousy attempts at making jokes, especially during Christmas indicate of how much a loser you are at the moment.

      And thanks for the good mood and "believe" that British teenagers are generally inadequate. How does it feel to be tagged as a role model for a stereotype?

      I never said merry christmas to you.

      I did my A2s two years ago I think.

      Are you suggesting I should have better things to do? What an idea.

      Happy winterval.

      They're asking for the equivalent qualification that gives the right to go to university in your home country - so in this case, A Levels. If you want to apply before your A Levels are completed then send them a letter from your school (ideally signed and stamped) with your AS and predicted A2 grades.
