    Hey everyone.Okay so I just got my AS results and its terrible. I thought of doing A levels to increase my marks or maybe doing a foundation course for engineering and going to college for a bachelor's degree.Anyone has done foundation course without A levels and gone to college? How difficult is the foundation course conpared to IGCSE/GCSE and AS/A levels?What do you guys think is the best option? And will having good SAT score be helpful to go for bachelor's degree if I get the foundation degree?

    You will still need A-levels for a foundation course.

    Thanks for the reply, but I looked up the foundation courses and they don't require As or A2 level. Which is why I considered them.

    I was mainly looking at Emirates Aviation University for Aerospace engineering. If I do my foundation with them I can do Bachelor's in another Uni. But I wanted some more info.

    Ah, that's not a UK university so I can't much comment... but yes a one foundation should be ok for a BEng. It might be worth checking with your potential universities that this specific qualification is acceptable.

    Also, if you resat your A-levels you could also get onto a BEng in 1 year.

    Hey, thanks for the reply c:
    Does she find it easier to handle than A-levels?
    Do you know if she will continue in the same Uni for bachelor's or transferring anywhere else?
    I'm scared I won't be able to transfer after the Foundation.
