    Ive completed my IGCSE A Levels, done two years in middlesex university, due to weird reasons I had to move to the US in California.
    The university in California told me to go to college to earn an associates degree then I could join their university and get my bachelors.
    The university requires about 120 credits to transfer in (average 3 credits per subject).
    My A level and middlesex university grades were told be equivalent to a college credit and it was credited full of 30 only. And which they want me to do more in college to complete the 120.
    Are these guys screwing me around or is this how it is? Is A level and UK university grades worth crap in the US?
    Has anyone else faced this problem when they transferred?
