Greetings, I'm a student from Pakistan. I recently completed my A levels, along with SAT I and SAT II in biology and chemistry. I'll be moving to USA pretty soon, since half my family lives there.
I have a SAT I score of 1900 and 710 on Biology SAT II, and a 690 on Chemistry.
I studied Biology, Chemistry and Economics at A levels, scored AAA.
Main problem : MY GCE O level results were horrible. I had some family problems and a gigantic dispute about property here, I smoked, slept and crawled my way towards A levels, barely.
Here are my O level results.
B- English.
E in biology, chemistry and maths.
C in religious studies and history
D in physics.
Crap, I know, but I've really improved myself. I had an excellent academic record before O level, but like stated, due to family drama, I pretty much bombed the exams.
My question is : Will I be able to get a place in an american university with my grades? I don't want to resit since there is no time for it. What should I do? Thanks in advance.

They would probably want to see that you passed Maths and English. You have gotten a B in English, I suggest you do Maths again and get a B at least... I don't know much about American schools but I hope you will take this into consideration. If you are wanting to do a science course, I suggest you resit Science as well and get at least a C grade.

Your grades should then appear like this at minimum:
Maths: B
English: B
Double Science: CC

What about my SATs? Will they cover up my O level results? And what's the deal about GCSE? And they are different from O levels?
