    If you say what qualifications you already help people may be able to help more, also what sort of scholarships are you after.

    External exam - ones that you get an actual qualification from, usually nationwide. So not mocks in school which are marked by teachers etc.

    From a quick google it looks like to study any degree in the UK you would need to either do a foundation year in the UK or complete the first year of a degree in Sudan.
    Having a quick look at a variety of scholarships I couldn’t see any that mentioned IGCSE’s so that shouldn’t be a problem.
    I’d suggest you have a look at a selection of Unis that you like the sound of and view their entry requirements and scholarships pages to see what works for you.

    I’m not an expert but from looking you will probably have to do some sort of foundation year which is harder than your Sudanese certificate then you would be able to take the normal length degree.
    This isn’t to get scholarships this is just to actually do the degree.
    Obviously you are also going to need to be getting work experience shadowing volunteering, Proof of English language ability etc.

    I’m going to tag in

    The Medic Portal

    As they may be able to give you some more useful help
