    Normally the standard is GCSE.

    What you need to do is select 6-10 unis you are interested in an check the requirements. It may make it clear. As a rule of thumb the less eilte the uni then the more likely they are to be flexible. I dont believe theres a consolidated list and you will need to do some research as above.

    In the event you find a uni you are interested in and it says GCSE only or doesnt mention FS, then contact them as sometimes they can be flexible and will take into account your experience. You have nothing to lose.

    In the event you find a uni you are super keen on and they wont budge, then just sit GCSE.
