Hi! I recommend contacting colleges directly as each one will have their own entry requirements. You might also need to get a UK ENIC (formerly NARIC) Statement of Comparability which will let the college know what your qualification is equivalent to in the UK. - Chloe
I recently applied to universities in the uk and I figured that none of the university that I researched on accepts Pakistan's metriculation as equivalent to gcse/ o level. However, there may be a way out when it comes to being accepted at colleges. For that, I would recommend contacting the respective colleges.
Also, m assuming you mean college as in undergraduate. If you're talking as in college for A levels i.e. sixth form, I can't help too much on that.

Hey there ,
Although we come from different countries I had the same Matriculation qualification from South Africa but my qualification was the equivalent to A Levels , I did not have to redo my A Levels. I used my matric results to apply for my current engineering degree.
I can't be sure what the equivalent of your exams is but its possible that along side an English test such as IELTS you already have the equivalent of A levels. But I would advise you to get in touch with the college of your choice and email them your qualifications and they can determine if your qualification is sufficient . Just bear in mind that all universities and colleges may have varying entrance requirements so it would be to your benefit to query with more than one college.

Alternatively feel free to get in touch with our admissions and send your qualification and see if it is sufficient to study a degree with. You might just find out that you already have an A Levels equivalent .
Either way , Goodluck ! and I hope this helps.
