    I am currently living in Portugal, attending a private school and studying for my A levels (Year 13). I read that the application deadline is in January but they require us to show our A levels results, which I will only do next year May/June.

    -So do the universities wait until you get your A level result or no?

    -Also, I am taking my SAT exams on December and wanted to know if the universities care more about our A level results or SAT results?

    -I was born in Portugal and am attending a private school that follows the Cambridge International curriculum. Do I have to take an IELTS test for my English, even though I am attending an English school?
