    Sos question.
    For example in my case I havent done any IGCSEs except chemistry bcs I wanted an easier start in my A levels.
    However unis like Leicester and Cardiff are heavy on IGCSEs.
    What happens with us?

    I didn't do any and it wasn't a problem at all. Your situation COULD be different because you have done one though, and possibly because you did A levels instead of some alternative qualification. You should call/email unis and ask!

    I imagine that e.g. Oxford would be out of the question unfortunately because for shortlisting they use an algorithm that has 50% weighting on GCSEs if you have done them (if not it's 100% BMAT) and even if you have just done one they would probably put you into the 50-50 category.
