    You have to meet the entry requirements which will vary based on your degree course so check the entry requirements.

    I think some universities will waive the requirements for special cases/if they really want you. But I've heard that grades aren't the most important thing - an interesting background, well-developed/original reasons for wanting to go, etc. can really help because I suppose you'd contribute to the community and bring something new. Just getting top grades (while important) doesn't mean you'll get in.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
