Hi guys, my name is Pedro and I'm currently studying Economics at the University of Sao Paulo, in Brazil. However, I've been thinking about applying for universities in the UK, which I would do by myself (not through a sixth form) and I'm aiming an entry in 2020. My main options would be LSE, UCL and Oxbridge. My question is, would I be able to (depending on my grades) study at one of these universities if I took my A levels in May/June 2020? If so, do you have any suggest on how I should proceed with regards to UCAS and the A-levels?

Thanks a lot, I understand it's a somewhat confusing situation so if you're not sure and wanna leave a guess, please feel free to do so

Yes you would be able to apply. As an Oxbridge applicant you will need to apply by October (15th) I think and use predicted grades. Ucas opens in September so you can apply then. If you chose not to apply to Oxbridge you have until January(15th) I think. Just be aware Oxbridge and LSE in particular are very competitive and there is no guarantee you will be accepted even if you meet the grades. These kinds of universities usually require Maths and sometimes Further Maths for economics.

Hi swanseajack1, thanks for the reply. About my predict grades, would I just predict them myself, then? Or should I contact some sort of UCAS advisor?

These are usually provided by your school or college who also provide your reference. You complete your own personal statement. If you have nobody I am not sure how this is done. Perhaps PQ might have more information.

Please look at this it will give you answers as to who would be your reference and that they would provide your predicted grades. Whilst offers are based on predicted you would need to achieve the actual grades in your exams or you would lose your place. You can apply with qualifications from your own country rather than A levels. The universities will be able to advise you better. You are also going to need to prove your English is of the necessary standard and will probably need to obtain IELTS or similar.
