    Are you OK with 2017 entries or do you want to start this year?

    UCAS clearing courses begin after few days. You might have good chance if you apply to York, Lancaster, Sussex, Leicester, Nottingham, QMUL, Loughborough etc.
    I want to start this year, so I'll look into Clearing, thanks!

    I'm confused, are you an American student? How comes you decided to take A levels and US exams?

    Regardless, you are likely to get rejected by all your universities with ABD at A level, considering the universities you've applied to all have grade requirements of ABB+. This is quite a strange situation because you have US grades as well, but the problem is that if you are applying to British universities with British exams (GCSEs, AS and A2), this is probably going to take precedence over your US grades. I'd contact the universities and ask if I were you though...
    If this want not confusing enough, here's this: I am an Egyptian student lol.

    It's a long story that doesn't matter, but I contacted them anyway to let them know that I want them to primarily consider my American qualifications, which is the only thing I can do at this point. I appreciate the time you took to read through my thread btw!

    Credit depends completely on the college

    I know how difficult it is - I've read the textbook I don't think NYU is known for engineering particularly. I'd give it a miss.
    Alright, it seemed that you were not familiar with it and thanks for the feedback!
