    Hi guys , in school I done a CIE Level 1 / level 2 certificate in English as first language(syllabus 0522) and have obtained a grade C. On UCAS it comes up as a ofqual regulated IGCSE.

    My question is, would Universities consider this the same as GCSE English? I have checked their website and all it says is GCSE English and maths grade C. So will I be alright ????

    Also if anyone has done this qualification, was it an issue when you applied for uni??

    Thanks 😊
