What are the equivalents of the GSCE? Especially in West Africa?

What are the equivalents of the GSCE? Are the WACE or JAMB exams consider equivalents? Some schools are asking me for the courses I took during high school and their levels? So do WACE and JAMB classify as A-levels exams? If not what exams classify as A-levels exams?

I don't think they qualify as A-levels exams. I'm guessing this question is for UK schools. Several of the schools that I've checked don't regard either of those as a direct entry qualification. therefore, a foundation or A-level may have to be taken. But it still depends on each school. I think the IB program is regarded as GCSE level.
