    I was looking at the UFT website and it says that outstanding GCSE/IGCSE grades can be used to apply for a place. I'm looking to study Economics and I'm predicted to get 9-10A*'s and a B (for Further Pure/Additional Maths). I've done some extra curricular work, for example attending the MUN, some work-experience and a couple of courses from UBC, MIT and ANU etc. I've listed what GCSE's I've done and what A Levels I'm going to do below:

    GCSE's
    Eng Lang + Lit
    Maths + FP Maths
    Biology/Chemistry/Physics
    Geography
    History
    FrenchEconomics

    AS:
    Chemistry
    Physics
    Maths
    Economics

    I was hoping someone could tell me whether my GCSE predicted grades would be acceptable to UFT (that is, if those are what I actually get in the end!) to study Economics and whether I can leave for university in Year 12 or whether I should do the full A Level Course.

    i suggest you do more research before thinking of applying to overseas unis. The process is not as clear cut but as an exceptional student, yes, you have every chance.

    Ah no, I have a Canadian passport. It's one of the reasons I'm thinking of going there

    Fair enough, do you live here? Im just saying because the process is more complicated.

    GCSEs dont massively matter but you have proved to be very smart so youre fine. Just focus on a levels now.

    I don't live in the UK currently. I was hoping to go to UFT after completing my AS Levels rather than the full 2 year course, would that be acceptable for them?

    Have you contacted the university? It wouldn't hurt to email them, even at this early stage. I'm sorry I can't offer any help.

    No, not even a polytechnic here would accept that

    When I was reading the requirements on the website it said that they would accept 4 AS Levels or 3 A Levels as a minimum, so that leaves me a bit confused! I don't think I'm going next year but I was wondering whether it was possible

    Btw do you live in Toronto?

    I know a loaaad of people that go there with a lot *less impressive grades. Not to generalise but you’ll be fine. And Yeahh I hear the Canadian passport makes things a lot easier with both fees and admissions. Goodluck to you but I doubt you’ll need it
