    Hi guys,

    In school I done a Cambridge international Level 1 /Level 2 Certificate in English As first language - syllabus 0522 And have got a grade C. I have googled it at it says that it is an Igcse which is regulated by Ofqual 🤔

    My question is that is my English qualification seen as the same as english language which is required for Universities ? And would I be at any disadvantage for doing this at school?

    Please help as I'm really confused ! Also if anyone has gotten to uni with the same English qualification- was it an issue ?

    Yes. CIE IGCSE English Language (0522) is the same as an English Language GCSE. It's perfectly fine for Universities.

    Hopefully , because when I go to enter it on UCAS it comes up as level 1/ level 2 English first language . So I was just confused because all my mates were GCSE English

    You're fine unis require a grade C in English Language and Maths at GCSE usually, but they generally don't care if it GCSE or IGCSE , IGCSE is very different to the normal GCSE though as the GCSE is at a higher level than the IGCSE but apart from that you're all good. Congrats on your grade
