I am a student of the British system-GCE and I don’t go to school , so basically I’m home-schooled . This is how so many of us do it here :leave
school and bury ourselves in the excruciating IGCSE crap . Why? Because actually attending a school is usually not necessary so it only makes sense that we focus on IGCSE . And now I come to the realization that this is not enough!
I’ve been preparing based on the university’s (not-so-easy) IGCSE requirements and guess what? These requirements never included ‘actual school transcripts’ but now I realize they are indeed required .
In short , would I be accepted with my IGCSE alone or do I really really need a school?
Ps: I want to apply for September 2014
the igcse’s are accepted and included as a possible substitute for gcse requirements, but uoft also requires a certain number of a-levels, depending on the program (arts, sciences, physical sciences and math, engineering). so i’m not sure about ‘actual school transcripts,’ but you will need a-levels on top of your igcse’s. i’m given to understand those take two years to complete, so you probably won’t be eligible for admission in september 2014.
i’m really sorry that’s the case. i’d recommend looking into other universities around the world to see if any accept the icgse’s alone if you really aren’t keen on waiting two years. i know you’ve worked really hard for what you’ve done so far, but sometimes the world is just super unfair.
