    How does "Typical Offer: AAA/A*AB with specified grades per subject" translates into as USA standards as in SAT/ACT/APs? Does this mean three AP courses with 5's or two 5's and one 4?

    I wish to apply for a Management with Marketing degree courses at the University of Bath, but if I did not meet the typical offer requirement, is it worth the time and money taking a year at the international foundation year program at Bath? I don't really want to waste a year of my life doing that.

    Thanks.

    It varies depending on the university. Try contacting the university to ask whether they accept AP for entry or not. Take a look at this too

    I doubt you need to do a foundation year.

    Bath says:

    "A Level or International Baccalaureate (IB); various US qualifications
    We accept various combinations of US qualifications for entry onto our degree courses. Undergraduate study in the UK is typically more focused on a particular area (or major) than in the US.To secure admission, we often place an emphasis on key subjects, as well as requiring a good all-round academic record. A typical example of an admission offer will be based on a combination of your high school diploma, SAT1 and three APs, which serve to demonstrate a particular level of understanding of a few relevant subjects. The ACT may substitute for the SAT1 and SAT subject tests may be offered instead of APs."
