Hi there, at the end of year 12 (in two years) I am moving to the UK where I need the following things to get into my course:

'5 GCSEs at Grade C or above, including English Language, Mathematics and a Science (single or double award), excluding General Studies and 3 A-Levels at Grades BBC or above.'

The thing is, there is nowhere I know I can study A levels in Australia and I cannot find out if a) VCE is equivalent/lower/higher than A levels and b) what ATAR I would need based off of these requirements? If anyone could tell me that would be awesome!

A levels are incredibly specialized and they're are so much harder then HSC subjects. Many people say that A level subjects are often harder then university courses at times.

People can take only 3 A levels? And there’s no compulsory subjects. Wouldn’t only doing 3 subjects be fairly easy? Even if it is in more depth
