    Not a problem, there are various options at UCL including studying a MFL during your degree course.

    Okay tell OP that then. I only shared him the link as it could be an issue (and unless you're an admissions officers your judgement is as good as mines) but i did tell him that the summer school was an available option.

    Idk why you always seem too busy correcting others and jumping at their throats, be more constructive and give some valuable help as you seem knowledgable.

    I only correct posts that provide incorrect or incomplete information. But thank you for your concern.

    By the way, the OP has already thanked me for an earlier contribution.

    fair enough, but being so blunt makes it seem like you're being condescending

    Your post had 23 words. My reply had 17. Not many fewer...

    How was I too blunt? I could have just said: that's wrong. Now THAT would be blunt

    Well for starters how can you be sure that an F wouldnt be a problem? And no, i wasnt wrong, since as i have already said "I only shared him the link as it could be an issue (and unless you're an admissions officers your judgement is as good as mines) but i did tell him that the summer school was an available option."

    I was merely raising an issue, the problem here is that the F would mean OP would have to do something to make up for it. Ironically thats makes you the wrong one

    UCL don't say the *only* requirement is to have a GCSE in a MFL. They say it's one of five possible requirements. And OP's A-level predictions of A*A*A* Distinction B is *more* than sufficient to make up for a small problem with their GCSEs (and I can see from a subsequent post that it's ECd anyway).

    Anyway - you are correct that we aren't ATs so yes at this point I'll leave you to it.
