    I'm in year 10 until this term.
    I study in British international school in Malaysia.
    I will take IGCSEs next year.and There are no year 12 and year 13 in my school.so I will also graduate next year too.
    But I have few questions!
    Can I entry the university without A-level?
    and what is difference between A-level course and foundation course?
    which countries have foundation course in the university?
    Sorry>< Because I do not really know about university system.

    Foundation course, I don't think you need a levels to enter. Its a year before your degree and I think it's there to prep you for the course in the same way alevels would.

    In England a foundation course is usually for students that have A levels or equivalent qualifications but either they are not in the right subjects or sometimes not at the required level for the degree course they want to take.
    Access courses are generally for mature students who have not completed A levels.
    Neither route is suitable for a 16 year old student who has not done A levels.

    In what countries would you like to study? You really need to narrow your options so you can research the very specific and different routes to university in different countries.
