How do you mean? You would need to meet the standard entry requirements in addition to any IELTS score that the University stipulates. But as far as showing how proficient you are in English then IELTS is generally the only requirement if English isn't your first language and you are trying to secure a place at university in the UK.

Most universities have their IELTS requirements displayed amongst normal academic requirements in their prospectuses or online. If in doubt contact the admissions department.

It all depends which uni you want to apply, which course and what qualifications you already have.

IELTS is examination for English language. If you don't have equivalents of A levels, and you want to apply for medicine just showing your IELTS result, no it's not enough.

Firstly, keep in mind that 6.0-6.5 are standard requirement for English language in majority of the UK unis. You have to have it. Then you have to chose which degree you want to do at which uni. Check the entry requirements, compare your qualifications, then apply

Best of luck

you can still attend the college and get your A levels. ESOL is basically language programme as well. It does not give any UCAS points or anything. You can also try to do BTEC at college and apply to uni when you are 19 not 18.

What is highest qualification that you have? I'm thinking you migh be able to do foundation year at uni, then start your degree, but who wants to pay 9k for an extra year instead of doing standard qualifications at college for free?

Well, I had to leave Sixth Form college because I had some problems there and there is no more colleges where I can do A-levels in my town.
If A-levels are required I'll try self-teaching.
Thank you for helping
