do i have to take the GCSE as an international student going into college in the UK?Watch
i've done some research about the schooling system in the UK, and i'm kinda stuck. so i understand that year 12-13 students could attend a sixth form college/ stay in their high schools, but they have to the take gcse.
in hong kong, we have our own local examinations called the "dse", and im currently taking that path since i don't really have a choice, and the students in hk normally take the dse by the end of their secondary school education.
as im not finishing my education in hong kong, i cannot present any scores that could be equivalent to a gcse grade, so i just want to ask if taking the gcses would be necessary to get into college in the uk?
I don’t think GCSE’s are necessary at all. I have a child at university in the UK who went through an American curriculum high school and she certainly didn’t need to pass an GCSE’s.
