Greetings!

So, I'm an intl. year-12 student, taking the A Levels in November 2020. I actually belong to my country's national curriculum, so I didn't take IGCSEs. However, I took the equivalent public exam offered by my curriculum, where I have mostly A's and A*'s (in the IGCSE equvalent)

I want to apply for NatSci in the 2021 entry. Am I eligible at all? Or even if I am, do I stand a chance?

I'm taking CIE A levels privately though. Math, Chem and Physics in one series up to full A2 level, and Further Math up to AS level. Also taking the TOEFL iBT around November. I do have a somewhat impressive personal statement (competed beyond national level Olympiads and wrote research papers)

Do I stand a chance? :|

Hi there! If you're taking A Levels, then yes, you're eligible to apply. Whatever qualifications you've taken previously shouldn't be a problem - we're very used to people taking qualifications from their national system or even no qualifications at all because their national system doesn't have them.
