    Hello! My name is Mihnea and right now i am in grade 10 in a private school in Romania(romanian curriculum).Next year i intend to go to study A levels in the UK because i think my application for medicine will be stronger than the romanian baccalaureate.The problem is that most medicine universities ask for certain gcse grades(igcse) besides A levels.I didn t took igcse's but i covered in school all the curriculum topics. Do you know what are the gcse's equivalent for the romanian system? Can i take A levels and when it comes to the igcse's grades just show a transcript of the grades from the years previous to A levels?This information is really important to me because if it doesn t exist an equivalent for the igcse i am going to take the ib that doesn t let me concentrate on the sciences as much as A levels let you.

    Thank you!
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
