I am in need of help trying to word my email to multiple universities.

Dear Madam/ Sir

My name is Daniel Goldman, I am a student at the British international college in (country), where I am studying the Cambridge curriculum and doing my As levels exams in May-June. The subjects I am taking are As level chemistry, physics, Extended mathematics, and English, I have also done and passed all my IGCSE which consist of Geography, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Extended Mathematics, English and Sociology. I am a holder of a Portuguese passport and my parents own property in Portugal. I am wanting to study electrical engineering at your university but I do not speak Portuguese fluently nor can I write. I wish to inquire about the following information:

  • What is the requirement for an As level student to do an electrical engineering course
  • I am wanting to know if you have English classes for electrical engineering courses at your university.

  • what is the equivalence of As level to Portuguese secondary education?
  • what are the requirements for an As level student to enter your university

I am looking forward to receiving your response.


Yours faithfully

Daniel Goldman

Daniel - the proper ending punctuation for a sentence is a period (full stop), not a comma.



My name is Daniel Goldman, (period, not a comma!) I am a student at the British International College (names must be capitalized.) in (country), where I am studying the Cambridge curriculum and doing my As levels A-level exams in May or June. The subjects I am taking are As level chemistry, physics, Extended advanced mathematics, and English, (period, not a comma!) I have also done and passed all my IGCSE courses which consist of Geography, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Extended Mathematics, English and Sociology. Although I hold am a holder of a Portuguese passport and my parents own property in Portugal, I am wanting ("want" is a stative verb. It is incorrect to use the progressive form in a formal context.) would like to study electrical engineering at your university but I do not speak Portuguese fluently nor can I write it.

Could you please answer the following questions for me? I wish to inquire about the following information:

  • What is the are the requirements for an As level A-level English speaking student to do an electrical engineering course?
  • I am wanting to know if Do you have English classes for electrical engineering courses at your university?

(This is unclear. Do you mean to ask: Are any of the electrical engineering courses taught in English? or Do you have English classes to prepare English speakers to take your EE curriculum?)

  • What is the equivalence of As level to A-level in Portuguese secondary education?
  • What are the entrance requirements for an English-speaking A-level As level student to enter your university?

I am looking forward to receiving your response.

You highlighted a part that was not necessary. AS is still offered, but as a separate qualification. See the introduction of the article here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GCE_Advanced Level(United_Kingdom)
