    Nope. 335,000 people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland take A Levels every year

    I know, I thinks it cus of TSR you'd assume 3A* is quite common. But most schools across the country have no-one who gets it haha

    Not in the mood for sarcastic jokes.As you're my senior who graduated from ucl,I respectfully asked you what my chances were.I ask you again,with utmost respect that do I even have any chance since the competition is so high?I need help as I am an International candidate.
    Then next time might be a good idea to not ask a question which is so obviously ridiculous and has nothing to do wit UCL’s official entry requirements which you can find on their website, thereby making your post seem like obvious trolling.

    Drop the attitude mate,it's not going to help.I asked a simple question knowing the fact that you were a UCL graduate and would know about what grades people usually get there and ;therefore, would help me out,but no,you had to act stuck up and arrogant.Forgive me for asking a question,I didn't know it was a sin.Learn to be more mature and respectful because if asking a simple question gets you triggered,then all I can say is good luck with your life ahead.

    Not stuck up or arrogant at all, just telling you to not get triggered at someone responding sarcastically to a post which by all reasonable appearances, was itself sarcastic and a parody of TSR students and their grades.

    The grade requirements are on UCL’s website, they are different for different subjects and being a UCL gradute doesn’t automatically mean you’re going to know what they are for any given subject. I suggest you do your own research straight from the university web pages before asking randoms on TSR and then getting triggered when they rightly perceive your post to be taking the piss.

    Listen,you don't get it do you?I've checked the requirements on the website many times but it does not specify gcse grade requirements clearly.So the only logical thing to do then was to ask this question from a fellow student who has studied and has info on the admission process in UCL on a Student forum.Plus,I'm an international applicant so I have to do as much research as possible and ask as many people online.Also,who got triggered first?Clearly you.
    I don't want to leave things on a sour note so good luck with life ahead

    The main thing that gets you in are the A levels that you obtain in the end.
    (i)GCSEs are really largely irrelevant compared to your A levels and only serve as an indicator of how well you performed during high school. Like if you failed your AS subjects and had medicore (i)GCSEs then it wouldn't look good.
    Anyways your iGCSEs are great you don't need to worry about them at all.

    His comment was far from an obvious troll, nor was it obviously ridiculous
