Using first year results as entry requirements for other universitiesWatch
There isnt a direct '2i = AAA A levels' or whatever ,equivalent - different qualifications and not a national system.
Just because you got a good first year result at one Unis doesnt mean you get entrance to the course at another.
All you can do is email each Uni and ask., but prepare yourself for No.
I also want to know is this common practice or is it something that universities don't like people to know?
As above, you can ask, but in the majority of cases you'll get a polite no.
All that matters is whether unis will accept it or not.
As stated it isn’t particularly common but you can only ask the unis in question whether they will or not.
I wouldn’t recommend using it as the plan. You’d be better off resitting a-levels and getting into the course as normal or looking for foundation years.
