    I am an american wanting to go to university in the Uk. I am planning to transfer out of my current university after I complete my first year. I am a computer science major and I am taking Intro to Coding (I am fully capable of getting a high grade in this course along with my 3 other courses i am taking). I received a 3.1 cumulative Gpa in high school, a 25 on my ACT, and a 1800 on my SAT. I am finding it very difficult finding universities in britain that would be a good fit for me. anything helps!

    Best thing to do is to email universities that interests you and asking whether or not you meet their criteria to apply (I'm guessing you won't be able to transfer, but rather apply for the 1st year).

    Possibly but UK uni is so very different to the USA no things like additional English or language classes all classes are related to your degree getting a 1 or 2:1 is a good thing and it's 3 years not 4 it's just because of the different system that's why

    Its very likely you will have to do year 1 again, especially since you go to a uni at a different country. The best thing to do is to contact them and ask (as each uni have different criteria)
