    Just wondering if you can apply for University with only your IGCSE grades?
    Do we have to do A Levels/IB or whatever certification before applying?
    I'm curious.

    You need to have done level 3 qualifications (So A Levels, IB, BTEC’s). GCSE’s are Level 2.

    You could apply to some foundation courses/acess to higher education courses without Level 3 qualifications, but these are generally for mature students (those 21 and over).

    But the answer is generally no. Especially for any Russell Group Level university, you will need generally ABB minimum or equivalent.
