    Best to speak to the uni you want to go to... Here we do GCSE at 15/16 and then ALevels at 17/18. Typically we get offers based on our A Level predicted grades (you might see this as A2 grades) but some courses require a C/B in GCSE math and/or English

    If you have not done GCSE/A Levels ask what the equivalent offer would be in the qualifications you have done in the past. I have read a lot of courses that ask for an IELTS (or something similar) score of 6.5. This is an English test I think

    Look on which university to find a course you want to do and then call/email the uni direct to find out what qualifications you need

    Thanks for your reply, it's complicated because i don't know what is equivalent to my study in egypt,but in egypt i've studied the preparatory school which is 3 years normally between 11 to 14 age old, after that we go to high school for 3 years between 14 to 17 or 18 years old,
    so i've studied the preparatory and a tourism school for 3 years which is equivalent to NVQ I think,
    So do you think I've to do GCSES or i can go straight to A-levels ?
    And if i have to do GCSES could you please tell me if they will accept me and how much will it cost !

    Good news if u havent studied these topics then u dont have to worry the UK, have learning centres where u can learn about all of these topics and it is also for people like u to do if u wanted to, btw i just researched this on the intrenet so dont know if it is accurate enough and i dont think u have to pay a lot as well

    No, u dont have to but i do think like i mentioned before that u should take an english test something like that before going to uni, they allow u to do one.

    but before that i do think u have to go to a learning center like i mentioned before in the UK, and learn about the three topics, and then do an exam at the end of it, and then there are many colleges in the UK, for afterwards which can help u and u just have to choice something u want to do.

    but u said something about NVQ or something, and i think u might be able to go straight to college with it or even uni, but u need to talk to someone with experience about this, as i think they may able to help you
