Hi guys. I aim to apply to colleges in the US next year, and was wondering if GCSEs are more important to them than A levels. I know this might sound weird, but I came across this thought because I've heard that they like diversity (and offer much more freedom in majors and minors than UK unis), and good grades overall in your GCSEs show that you can be good in multiple subjects/fields.
Also, US colleges require 12 years of schooling, which we've completed by the time we've finished AS in year 12, but AS is only half the A level course, so maybe half a course won't have as much weight as our completed GCSEs? Most people apply to USA in the beginning of A2 and offers are generally unconditional, as long as you don't flunk your A2 exams. What are your thoughts?
Importance of GCSEs/ A levels for college in USA?
