International Advanced Levels (Grades 11 & 12)
EDEXCEL is one of several globally recognised “University Entrance Certificates”. Other well-known University Entrance Certificates are e.g. IB, Cambridge, German Abitur or the French Baccalaureate.
Edexcel qualifications are accepted by universities all around the world. However, before you apply to any institution, it is essential that you check the exact entry requirements for your selected course(s) on the university website and then with the university’s admissions office if you still have any queries. You will also need to be aware of any language requirements in addition to the academic entry standards.
It is also very important to remember that university entry is always competitive so achieving the minimum entry requirements is not a guarantee of admission; the higher your grades and the stronger your application documents, the better your chance of being accepted to your chosen programme.
There are few factors determining “university entrance” such as national requirements (Language level requirements like TOEFL, IELTS, ELS for English, or B2/C1-certificate, DSD II for the German language) or combinational subject requirements related to the career of interest (Medicine, Engineering, Law, Humanities, Arts etc.)
