    As a student from the United States who wishes to apply for the United Kingdom, I'm a little unsure of what qualifications I should put into my UCAS application. While I am currently taking IB Diploma-level courses at school (3 HLs and 4 SLs), I am not a candidate for the IB Diploma (so no core points). Whilst I do have enough American qualifications (AP exams and ACT) to meet the requirements stated on the international student pages of most UK universities, would it be wise for me to insert my predicted scores for the IB exams, or just put in my American qualifications?

    You need to enter all qualifications - that means your AP and your IB HL/SL courses.

    Universities will likely ignore your IB exams but they get to decide - you don't filter what you declare on your UCAS application.
