Your Prelim Results Matter. Here's Why.


Whether it’s your O or A Level prelim scores, it’s natural to fret about them.

To a certain extent, those grades can determine how strong you are in certain subjects, provide an inkling of your current standing and what to expect on the actual test day.

But what if we told you that your prelim scores are alot more than just that. That it could be used to kick-start you on a study abroad adventure? Based on your scores, IDP will be able to provide you with a list of study abroad options, assist you with applications and provide you with a headstart in getting your college/university offers.

Here's a breakdown on what you can expect

For O Level Students: Conditional offer to a foundation pathway.
For A Level Students: Conditional offer to an undergraduate degree.

What are Conditional Offers?

If you recieve a conditional offer from a college/university, it means that they have confirmed your eligibilfor entry but still required to meet set of entry requirements before receiving a guaranteed official offer. 


Why not just apply directly with your final results?

It takes around 1 - 4 weeks for the college/university to access your results and other factors before granting you an entry or offer. Thus, by getting a conditional offer first, it will provide you with a faster confirmation and ultimately an ease of mind that you have been granted entry.

We’ve got 50 years’ of experience as a global study abroad specialist, and we intend to make that count by fulfilling your goals and study abroad dreams.

Keen to find out more about what your prelim scores can do for you? Take the next step and make an appointment with one of our friendly counsellors. Your journey is just getting started.
