    Hey y'all..

    I got straight A's at my IGCSE's, and am predicted straight A's in my AS Levels (Biology, Chemistry and Physics), and am going to apply for a college in the UK for a Foundation Year. The problem is that Med Schools normally ask for an IELTS score of 7.0, some 7.5, but i got 6.5 and i've been regretting it the whole time. Do u guys thinks that they would let me in by any means cuz of my other grades, or are they harsh about English Language requirements?

    Cheers.. :cool:

    hmmm...you don't need to put your IELTS score on your UCAS form because you already have IGCSE english! (unless you did english as a second language).
    btw, why are you applying for the foundation year? i believe u meet the criteria for the normal programme if you continue all 3 subjects at A2 level...

    The problem is that the IELTS score should be given in a separate sheet of paper (the original document), not in the UCAS, so this is compulsary. Continuing my AS levels to A2's, or doing the foundation course, are a 1 year course each, so there is really no big difference and i already have it all organised, but the problem lies within my IELTS score (only because of a 0.5 difference) :mad:
    I'm also going to do the TOEFL exam soon because i read in several prospectuses that either IELTS or TOEFL are accepted, so i guess my only chance is to ace that TOEFL and aim for 250 or above..

    you don't need to do the IELTS or TOEFL if you have IGCSE english! so it doesn't matter what you get on either of them!

    yes i'm sure! coz everyone in my school did IGCSE english and no one did the IELTS...and we all got offers!! some people did TOEFL coz they were applying to american unis.
    IGCSE and GCSE are viewed as the same thing...IGCSE is just the international version....so u can apply to any med school!!
    and i think you shouldn't put your IELTS score on your UCAS form...

    good luck with applications and stuff! hope you get into wherever you wanna go!
