    Firstly what course do you want to do, a test is dependent on the university/course, for example if you want to do Law, you will need to do the LNAT, medicine UKCAT etc.

    You will have to apply through a website called UCAS (www.ucas.ac.uk), here you can choose five different courses at whichever universities you like. You will need to show your grades and personal information. Alongside this is a reference from a teacher etc and a personal statement which is like a letter to explain why you want to do the course (that would probably require a whole new thread althogether). I think I have covered most things, any more questions quote me and I will help you out :top:

    This should help you out too: http://www.ucas.ac.uk/students/start...ply10/overview

    Also without wanting to sound rude you might need to improve your English written skills, especially for your personal statement.

    Here is a list of universities that offer it by using the times ranking: http://extras.timesonline.co.uk/tol_...b=43&x=17&y=12

    In terms of what exams you need to do, start looking at some of the universities websites and it will tell you on there, best of luck with your application :yep:
