University entry requirements and the UCAS application process.
The British International School in Ukraine prepares students for entry into International universities as well as those in Ukraine.
As the school offers the English National Curriculum, it is anticipated that universities of choice will primarily be in the UK. At BISU we offer information and advice on the application process and will help students with any queries they may have. This includes helping students and parents to choose the course best suited to the needs of each individual and advice on funding.
Entry requirements are a guideline of the recommended academic ability the course provider expects students to have. Each course has different requirements, such as a mix of qualifications, subjects or exam grades. They are set by the course providers as a guide to the kinds of qualifications, subjects and exams students need. However, meeting them does not automatically guarantee a place. Many university courses set entry requirements based on one or a combination of these. Universities also accept UCAS Tariff points applicable to certain courses. For example, depending on the grade achieved at GCE AS- Level, up to 60 points are available. However, if IB Diploma is the highest qualification achieved, then only the points allocated to IB Diploma, as this is the higher achievement.
Some course providers may ask for interviews or auditions. There are guidelines for interview techniques on the UCAS web site. For admission to a Law, Medical or Maths degree, or for entry to Oxford and Cambridge universities, an admissions test is sometimes required.
