    I am trying to apply to uni from the US I officially have 4/20 classes completed that are part of the 2 year Associates Degree I have been following. I didnt know how to drop classes back in 2005 so I quit going and now have 2 F's on my transcript with 3 A's from this last semester and 1 C from 2005. I have tried very hard to get someone from the university I am applying to to tell me if the classes I will have completed...in total 10-11 of the 20 required for an Associates would be sufficient for first year consideration. I have been unable to get any concrete answers except the woman in the international office said she was "pretty sure" 1 year of the 2 year would be sifficient. So here's my problem. How do I show the 1 year completion is what I will have achieved in my UCAS application? Do I enter it in my personal statement? I am 27, never have taken AP or SAT's. I plan on and expect to get straight A's in the rest of the 7 courses, how do I explain I still have 7 to go but I will have the first year complete upon entry to the university?
