Hello I have a question if I'm going to skip IGCSE and done with A level or AS level will the universities accept me? or I need to do it?

University requirements are all based off A level or equivalent, so theoretically yes, however be careful with this - some places offering A levels require you to have done GCSE first, some A levels you really need to have done GCSE first- for example languages A levels build up from GCSEs.
The other thing to be careful with is that certain courses require things like GCSE English/Maths & sometimes sciences regardless of A level achievements (even just having these IGCSEs would help in the long run to say that you've passed them, even if they're the only ones you have).

You generally need to know the IGCSE content to study the subject at A level but you don't necessarily have to have taken the exam. Most university courses require you to have passed IGCSE Maths and English Language. Exactly what else you need depends a bit on the university and the course.
