    Dear Sir,
    I am a Sri Lankan student living in Dubai, UAE. I have done my advance level exam’s in UK curriculam and have a specific question on the selection of applicants for your university.
    I have done Mathematic, Chemistry, Physics and Information Technology (ICT) as my sublects for AS level.
    The Mathematic is based on the Ed-EXCEL syllabus and the other three subjects were followed with Cambridge syllabus. This is how the school I attended in Dubai has structured there AS levels.
    Since it is a mix of two syllabuses do you object my application to be in your university. Please, appreciate your response as soon as possible.
