    Hi
    I usually check the forums and I read people say about uni courses, steps to apply to university...
    I have a question and I have animated to join to this community and I hope that you can resolve my doubt.

    Currently I live in Spain and in this education system, if you want the IB with scholarship (all subventionated in the practise), you also have to take the Spanish Baccalaureate. I don't know if in other countries are similar but if you know it, it's more difficult because you aren't deep in anyone of this certificates...
    UK Universities know this and they consider both certificates or only one of this?
    From my point of view, Spanish Baccalaureate (or European Baccalaureate his default) is more easy that IB. If only one certificate is allowed, which is better choose in UCAS track?

    Thanks.

    If that's the norm for your education system then they would most likely be looking at both, you should be putting both in your ucas application.

    You have to put down all results, so it's not something you need to worry about.
