Hi all
I am a student from Hong Kong and i am about to start my sixth form in UK.
I self-studied 6 IGCSE subjects in HK and the results is shown in below:
4A* ( Maths (edexcel higher-tier)
Econ (edexcel)
History (edexcel)
Chinese (edexcel) )
1A ( ESL (Edexcel) )
1B ( Bio (edexcel) )

So the question i wanna raise is will the A and B reduce my chance in getting into law schools such as UCL ?

Thank you for all of your help.

Mike

You have 4*, you have a very good chance of getting in. However their entry requirements are based on A-levels. GCSE'S Make little difference compared to Alevels. You do however need to get a B+ for English language.

It depends on the university, Oxbridge and LSE don't accept ESL, whilst UCL does. UCL requires B in IGCSE ESL for Law.
