Can i be accepted by a top uni with bad igcse grades?Watch
I am an international studen(from Kazakhstan) currently in year 12 lower sixth studying Further Maths, Economics and Physics. I got terrible IGCSE results due to poor exam technique
I am afraid that good unis will reject me due to these grades. I am however doing really well in AS and expect to get 4 as or a*s. Do i still have a chance?
It is mainly your A level predicted and of course final grades that get you into the universities you apply for.
If you are predicted 4 A-A*s and you are confident in getting those grades at the end of your A levels, I think you should be given an offer at strong universities.
Most Unis will also 'score' your overall GCSE profile and use this as part of an overall score that will include A level predictions, PS score etc etc. This overall score is how you are ranked for an offer - higher the score, you have more chance of an offer.
I got 2Cs for my igcse maths and english .will universities accept these C passes as english and maths are two important subjects?
(IGCSE and GCSE are treated as equal qualifications).
