Details of a conditional offer

I am in my last year of VWO, living in the Netherlands, and I just received my offer for an interview at Manchester. this would probably be a conditional one. Back here in the Netherlands we have 3 test weeks throughout the year and 1 central test that every student takes at the same time. What grade will matter for my conditional offer? The average of all my tests or the score i get on the central one?

Thank you very much!

Hi Robertino,

I have just been looking at Leeds University website and the requirement for applicants with qualifications from the Netherlands is stated at:

It states "Voorbereidend Wetenschappelijk Onderwijs (VWO). A-level grade equivalences: A* = 9, A = 8, B = 7

It looks like Leeds ask for an overall grade with individual grades in four subjects.

I can't find the same description on the Manchester University website, so you should email the admissions team.

Good luck.
