    Swap to FrenchHello,
    I am currently preparing my applications for an undergraduate level (philosophy, politics and economics) and am currently in first ES class. My primary goals (though almost unachievable) are Oxford and LSE.
    So I had some questions about the "Education" part:
    - For universities like these is it good that I enter my patent notes (17,33 of average)?
    - Do I have to return my newsletters? If so, how and in what years?
    - "Qualification" refers to past examinations or also the results of continuous monitoring / bulletins?
    - Do you have an idea of ​​the newsletters expected by these universities?
    - Do I have to enter my grades?
    - Always in "education" we have to make a choice between "below honors degree qualification", "honors degree or above qualification" or "i will have no qualifications" what should I choose and especially what does it Really means?
    thank you in advance

    I'm just going to comment that this is difficult to understand, but I'll break your questions down into the answers you need.
    1) Can you explain if these are public exams ( i.e ones where you have a Certificate from outside)
    2) Probably not
    3) They don't need year by year, but one reference from your school
    4) YES, enter all certified exams- guessing you are french so the bac etc
    5) Below Honours degree level qualifications, unless you have no public exams- it's just really relevant for transfers/Medics entering UG courses after a UG degree.
    If you have any more questions, reply

    Have you just Google Translated that?

    Which country are you in?

    And for which year of entry are you applying... 2017 or 2018?

    Do you have IELTS or similar English language qualifications?

    Hi,

    Yes sorry I just translated that because I didn't have the time.
    I am French and I am going to apply in September for 2018 entry.
    By saying "newsletters" google trad would said school report.

    So I fixed this bad translation :

    I am currently preparing my applications for an undergraduate course : PPE (philosophy, politics and economics) and I am currently studying economics, history, social sciences, English, Spanish, Italian, literature, geography, maths and further maths, sciences and philosophy.
    My primary goals (though almost unachievable) are Oxford and LSE.
    So I had some questions about the "Education" part on UCAS:
    - For universities like these is it good that I enter my junior school certificate (17,33/20 of average)?
    - Do I have to put on UCAS school reports or to send it directly somewhere for schools ? If so, how and what years ?
    - "Qualification" refers to past examinations or also the results of continuous monitoring / school reports? - Do you have an idea of ​​the newsletters expected by these universities?
    - How UCAS points are working ? And how are they calculated ?
    - Always in "education" we have to make a choice between "below honors degree qualification", "honors degree or above qualification" or "i will have no qualifications" what should I choose and especially what does it really means?

    Have a look at my post to you a few days ago, as that explains nearly everything, but I don't know about the specific processes for adding French qualifications. Ucas points can not really be calculated for foreign students and the institutions you mentioned go off grades. If you have any more questions, I'll try my best to help

    Do you mean the bac? If so, yes, enter that. Oxford require a minimum of 16/20. (Note: For the UK, write your score as 17.33)

    - Do I have to put on UCAS school reports or to send it directly somewhere for schools ? If so, how and what years ?
    No. You will need a reference though.

    - "Qualification" refers to past examinations or also the results of continuous monitoring / school reports? - Do you have an idea of ​​the newsletters expected by these universities?
    For France, I believe that it's just going to be the bac result(s).

    Please feel free to include the French names for things, as it would be clearer to some of us.

    UCAS points aren't relevant for Oxford, LSE or similar calibre universities. Just concentrate on meeting their typical entry requirements.

    Have you also considered HSPS at Cambridge?

    And to remind you, you will need a good standard of English when you apply - IELTS or equivalent. https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/unde...rements?wssl=1

    I don't want to apply to HSPS Cambridge because I prefer the program of Oxford.

    Oui je suis en ES car sinon certaine voie m'étaient fermées. J'étais en S en début d'année.

    Oui je postule pour des PPE, et j'ai commencé mon Personal Statement.
    Dans la lettre de recommandation mon professeur doit faire une prévision de mes notes au bas. Pour Oxford/LSE tu penses qu'elle doit me prévoir combien environ (en note, la mention TB va de soi pour ces écoles...)?

    Yes I am in ES because I couldn't go to some school if I had stayed in S.
    I am applying for PPE and I started my personal statement.
    In recommendation letter, my professor should predict my baccalaureate mark. For Oxford/LSE how much do you think she should predict ? (precise mark because honours mention is obvious)
