    Can I join university after igcse
    It's unlikely. You might be able to find a foundation year that will accept you with just igcses but to be honest they're likely to be just interested in your money and not offering the course for your benefit.

    Why don't you want to study a level 3 qualification like A levels or IB?

    No matter how excellent your grades are, you can't. IGCSE is the equivalent of completing year 10, to give you another perspective and Universities usually need you to complete school (till year 12 aka 2 more years)

    Do a Pre-University course of your choice.
