    Hey,
    Thanks for taking a look and helping me out. Let me get right into it, i have received 5 Cs (English, Math, Biology, Chemistry, Arabic) and 1 B in Physics in May/June 2016. I have also received B in AS Arabic, in addition to a band 7.0 in UKVI Ilets, what are your suggestions?

    Thank you,
    Abdelhamid
    PS: Most Students in our school got accepted into uni with their igcse's, they did really bad in AS levels. that's why im not trying to waste a year

    You will usually need A-levels to apply to a foundation year at a UK university.

    I understand that you don't want to waste a year but I think it might be worth doing full A levels and applying that way.
    A year isn't that long, some people I know also did other things in that time on top of studying that helped their applications and gave them experience.

    You could just call up some universities and they may take you though, universities are a business and want your money. If you fail on the foundation year they won't really care once they have your money.

    I really appreciate what you said to me and opened my eyes more, our school doesn't offer A levels and gives AS only so that's one issue making me jump this year as i still cant find schools with A levels being because most are full.
