    Where are you coming from? What will your residency status be? What qualifications will you have achieved before arrival? Are you looking for a state school or will you be paying for a private education?
    Even if you are eligible to attend, good state schools in London are very popular and will be hard to get into with such a late application.

    Madagascar - an equivalent GCSE + french baccalaureate - i'm looking for a state school!
    I knowwww however it's mainly to get used to the UK's system and be close to universities I want to go to. So do you think I could still, say, enter some less known state schools in London? Would you have specific places?

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING

    As far as I know people from Madagascar are not able to travel to the uk and claim a state funded education. Unless you intend to pay for your education at a private school or college I don't think your plan is feasible.

    As a French citizen resident in the uk you would be able to apply to attend a state school or college to study A levels if you are between 16-19. I don't know any way to apply for a place if you are not yet living in the uk.

    There is a huge number of schools and colleges in London and the surrounding area. I don't personally know any that are still accepting applications for next year. Someone else may be able to help.
