    No, just no! They don't have entry requirements, you can't guess the grades required to get in.

    As long as you have good grades (relative to the context of your school), don't fret over your school grades. Your SAT I and II scores will be more important so focus on acing those tests. Make sure your extracurriculars are unique and demonstrate your interests (depth>breadth). Get amazing teacher recommendations and write compelling essays. That in its self won't guarantee you'll be accepted but its a starting point.

    They don't have subject requirements for any major but you're obviously expected to take the highest maths level if you're applying as an engineering/computer science major (just an example). So take maths and economics and two/three other ASs that interest you. You'd be better off taking a wider range of subject groups so a science, a humanities, English? You'll be taking general education requirements when you get to these universities and they span over all the subject groups so you don't want to put yourself at a disadvantage by taking a level subjects that only relate to your intended major.
