I finished my IGCSE's and I am currently doing my AS levels. My grades for IGCSE were as follows.

Biology: A*
Physics: A
Maths: A
ICT: A
English: A
Chemistry: B
English Literature: B
Media Studies: B
Geography: B

I am planning on doing Engineering in Germany and have knowledge of the language until B1. I want to study there in English as it will be easier. Any tips on what uni I should go to or what I should do? And I will do my AS and A2 levels before I go.

Have you read this https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5095820 ?
The vast majority of undergraduate degrees (at public universities at least) are in German for the most part, and B1 would be indeed to low for that I think, so your first step should be finding out where an English Engineering degree is offered at all.

I really should have remembered Wolfie's thread! wolfmoon88

And eunicas has the list of English-taught courses

There aren't any German language requirements for the many English taught courses as far as I know. However you may wish to consider that you can do a 1 year German prep course in Germany as part of your university, that will open up more degree course options to you as you can study in German too rather than just English alongside being good for socialising, getting around, etc.

As a sidenote, Germany has an incredibly high dropout rate for international students (it's part of why such a high proportion of international graduates can remain in Germany), so you should be aware of this going in.

I think if you want to study in Germany you have to have the following at a level:
- one of maths/bio/chem/physics (more if you want to study science so you might need another)
- a language (can include English language I think)
- another a level related to your course

Check individual uni requirements though

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?
