    Hypothetically, if I were to complete all my GCSEs in England (and get good results) but for some reason have to move to the US after, would I have to re-take then end-of-school exams there or could I carry on to college?
    I was wondering and the internet didn't seem to have much to say about that...

    Many Thanks!

    Since you'd be 16, you wouldn't go to 'college'. Americans stay in high school till 18. So you'll be doing SATs/ACTs at 18 as your GCSEs won't be sufficient for uni applications there.

    I'd asume that the school would give you the credit for all the subjects you've taken, and then you'd most likely have to carry most of them on for two more years (most high schools require 4 years of English and maths, some also require 4 years of science and a language, but it will depend on the schools graduation requirements). In the 11th grade you'd probably either take the SAT or the ACT, and then apply to college
