    Hiya, I just wanted to what really is "Foundation Year." Many of my relatives suggest me to do foundation year instead of a levels as its of only 1 year while a levels is of 2 so it's going to save my year. I really dont whether it's true or not so I want your answers for that ^~^
    And also Im doing O levels right now what's your opinion what should I opt for A levels or Foundation year?

    You can't go straight from O Levels (which are equivalent to UK GCSE) to a foundation year. In your situation, you need to take A Levels and you'll then be able to go to the first year of university.

    I think foundation years require alevel or equivalent and they can also be used for people who are inter in a course but didn’t quite meet the entry requirements, email university admissions and see what they think

    A foundation year is for those with A-levels (or equivalent) but they either have "poor" grades, or they did the wrong A-level subjects for a particular university course. So for example you could do an Engineering Foundation if you didn't have A-level Maths, but you did have 3 other A-levels.

    So OP does need to have level 3 qualifications, such as A-levels.
