    I want to apply to schools like Yale in the Us and i know i need the SAT but what else would give me a good chance at getting in from the uk because i dont have a gpa or anything.

    Ace the GCSE and A Levels. Ace the SAT.

    Commit to ECs and maintain them, rising into leadership positions if possible. Maybe do something phenomenal, like start a company that grows rapidly.

    It won't guarantee a spot, but it will increase your chances.
