Would Turkish GCSE count towards my total GCSE altogether.

Hi,

So to do A-Levels at the 6th Form I want to go to you need 8 GCSEs. I completed my Turkish GCSE last year and got an A. Let’s say on results day I get 7 GCSEs will I be able to count the Turkish GCSE with the 7 other GCSEs I received, which will make it 8 GCSEs altogether?

Is Turkish your first language?

Then what’s the point of schools allowing us to sit those GCSE’s if they’re practically useless?

Ask your school that!

You really need to ask the school you are applying to whether they will count it.

I completed my English language GCSE a year before everyone else. It still counts.

As for people saying it doesn’t count, don’t listen, it does. Half of my GCSE French class were French and half French kids living in England. They knew the language, just wanted an easy qualification. It was worth just as much as that earned by non native speakers.

Good luck with 6th form!

Muttley79 is wrong, it will be counted. Every GCSE you do is counted towards your total and universities will count it too

His logic seems to be that because it's your first language then it won't count. However, if that were true then English GCSEs wouldn't count for people born in the UK

Turkish GCSE is a GCSE for people speaking Turkish as a second language. GCSE English is designed for English speaking students.

Not every uni counts it.

There's only fairly specific circumstances (a handful of courses) where your GCSEs are really looked at in any detail. They probably won't care to make the distinction and even if they did, there's no real difference between 7 and 8 GCSEs.
