    Hello,

    I'd be interested in apply for some universities. I'm already informed about all the process I have to go through. Nevertheless, many universities asks for AAB grades.

    My problem starts here. In Spain (Where I'm from) it's more important Selectividad (exam to apply for universities) than Bachillerato (similar to A-Levels courses). Because of this, my grades in my last two years aren't very good. In my case, UK universities also requires 12 out of 14 points in Selectividad which is insanely high (you just need this grade in Spain if you want to enter to Medicine).

    I'm 21 in my last year of university and I want to start a new undergraduate, so I'd like to know if I could somehow take A-Levels. If you have any information about it, I'd appreciate it.

    Thank you!

    Contact the universities that you're interested in, as you'll have already completed a degree they may consider accepting that. However that means you can't have any funding from the Uk government.

    If you already have a degree, it's unlikely you'll need to go back and complete A Levels - unis can use your existing degree qualification towards the entry requirements. You would be best to ask the unis you're interested in if this would be possible.
