I am a student from Lithuania currently in a last year of school (12th grade). I will take national exams to receive "brandos atestatas" at the start of summer. Although I was quite sure I could apply to UCL now I'm quite puzzled because of the certain phrasing in their statement about requirements for my country. My doubts also stem from the fact that few years ago their requirements were a lot more strict: "To be eligible for consideration a student must have successfully completed at least one year of a bachelors (Bakalauras) degree programme at a recognised Lithuanian University."
And the current statement is:
For general entry to undergraduate programmes at UCL we require a minimum of:Award of the Brandos Atestatas with a grade 9 overall with one state-examination subject passed at 90% and two further subjects passed at 85%, will be considered.Students who have not taken qualifications which are acceptable for direct entry to UCL will be considered if they have successfully completed a recognised international undergraduate foundation programme, including the UCL Undergraduate Preparatory Certificates.
So I was wondering if this means that I must already have the qualifications in question ( "brandos atestas" ) at the time of applying or is submitting my grades and then waiting for exam results is enough? I would really like to study at UCL but I don't want to waste my choice if I'm not qualified.
