Hi! I was wondering if something like skipping years is possible in the UK. I'm 20 y.o. and before I came to England I was attending technical college in Poland (which lasts 4 years). I passed all the qualification exams there, which are said to cover all the knowledge to immediately start working. But instead I chose to go to the University. I'm aware that there are maybe 2 modules, that I haven't had earlier and would have to put a little more effort into them, but it wouldn't be a bigger problem to pass the exams. Have anyone had similiar situation? Should I reach out to the University or will it be immediately rejected? I'm studying at the Loughborough University by the way.

Extremely unlikely. There would have been a very slim possibility of a transfer, but not direct entry without having done a first year at a Uni in the UK.
