    I've been looking at going to Universities in the UK and have been looking at maybe going to the USA to study.

    I didn't do great in my A Levels but i get A's, B's and C's in my GCSE's and to be completely honest, I didn't try as hard as I could've in my A Levels.

    What I wanna know is do you need A Levels and SATs to get into a University in America? or do they just look at SATs?

    I was thinking of retaking/taking new A Levels anyway but if SATs are more important, I'd focus on them more than my A Levels.

    Thanks

    Your A levels are more important. Both matter, though, especially for selective schools.

    Your A-levels are VERY important - they are your main course of study. Things like EC, SATS etc are there to then differentiate further the million or so applicants who all have perfect grades etc. If you think applying to the top UK universities is competitive, the top US universities are on another level altogether.

    A Levels count a lot. Most of the US Universities ask for a 12 Year study and SAT. They are the very important.
