If the requirements for a uni include 3 gsces, and I took the IELTS exam, does that mean I only have to take 2 gsces? (since the IELTS exam is equivalent to an english gsce)

You need to check with each individual University.

If you aren't a UK students (which I guess you are based on taking IELTS) then GCSE requirements will usually not apply and they'll require the equivalent studied in your country.

And what happens if I've been homeschooled from the beginning of highschool? Do I still have to take GCSES?

You need to speak to individual universities if you have no formal qualifications apart from IELTS. They might be willing to waive GCSE requirements or they might still ask you to take English and Maths.

It's quite a step from home schooling to studying a degree - they'll need some evidence that you're capable of coping with the academic workload.
