    Do you have 100 grand to pay the fees?

    (Original post by MercrutioCaius)
    I am currently in year 12. In my GCSE's I got an A* in Physics, A in Math, A in Biology, A in Chemistry, A in Economics, B in History, B in French, B in English Lit, B in English Lang, B in RE, C in Statistics and D in Geography (Year 9 btw so i was pretty young). I want to study ChemEng at UCLA or USB. I am doing Chemistry, Physics and Math for A-Level.
    I doubt it. You'd be an international student so you will be in competition with outstanding students from multiple different countries.
    It's probably easier to get into Oxford as a Brit, than it is to get into UC Berkelely as an international.

    You'll probably need to take the SAT/ACT. For the UC system, they won't count your freshman year grades, so don't worry about your Cs and Ds back then. According to the Berkeley website, you just need to complete your qualifications over there. Keep in mind, American admissions are quite subjective, and there are always the apocryphal stories of the student with bad grades getting in because of a strong extracurricular resume/application essay/good recommendations/parent who went to university.
