    Hello everyone! I'm an American student hoping to apply to a few British unis soon. Over the past four years in high school, I've taken the AP Human Geography exam (with a score of 4 out of 5), AP World History (3), AP U.S. History (3), and AP English Language and Composition (3). This year I'll be taking the AP Environmental Science, U.S. Government, English Language and Literature, European History, and German Language and Culture exams. As I start to investigate more into UK universities and entry requirements, it's difficult to gauge whether or not I have a chance of being accepted because unis only give acceptable A-Level scores or IB scores and I can't find UCAS points anywhere (btw, UCAS is the greatest thing since sliced bread. We don't have anything nearly as centralized in the US when applying to school). I was wondering if anyone could give me a tentative figure for what AP scores would convert to in terms of A-Level scores. Thank you!

    When searching for uni I haven't seen requirements lower than 4 on an AP test. AP's are typically regarded to be less difficult than A levels- for example, LSE requires 5 AP's with a score of 5 to compensate for 3 A's on A level.

    Thank you! Now I sort of know where I'm at...
