    So I just got my Jan Edexcel IGCSE results and I've passed one out of three subjects ( which is a major let down tbh ), and I was wondering if uni's really need IGCSE/GCSE results? If i could pass ( probably not ) ALevels well enough, would i still have to show them my IGCSE certificate ?

    You'll have to declare them but as long as you have English and maths (sometimes a B in these) most won't really care about the others. You may well need higher grades to be able to take the A levels you want though. Do as well as you can and that's all anyone can ask

    I'm currently School-less so I entered through the British council. I have secured my english exam, thankfully, but failed maths. While studying for IGCSE I also went and done some work for A-Levels ahead of time just in case. Hopefully I do even better with my A-Levels and get accepted.

    With the new reformed A-Levels (A-Levels are changing to one 2-year course as opposed to two 1-year courses) universities are going to be looking at A-Level results AND GCSE results. What you get in GCSE is becoming more important starting for the current year 11's - but it should be fine if you don't take it at A-Level (however most uni's want a C/B in maths and english language depending on the uni)

    Well done for English, you've got time yet to pull your maths grade up which is good! As someone says they're likely to be looking more at GCSEs now with the changes but noone really knows anything about this until they've started to go through so I wouldn't worry too much. I would say working on your remaining GCSEs is more important than starting A level content though at this stage- you have the summer for that if you really want to and the whole of the next two years. Good luck anyway!
