    For top UK colleges, will they even care if I score a 3 or 4 on some AP tests in May, because they all seem to only count how many 5s you get.

    Also, how often do top UK schools request for predicted grades from Americans?

    They will if the offer they've made you is conditional on you getting a 5 in those APs. And if you're applying after you've done your APs, then yes, you would have to declare them on your UCAS form.

    I'm unsure about your second question - tagging someone who might know.

    Every UK uni posts the scores that are required for each course, and you have to the right number in the right courses with the right scores. If you have additional scores that are lower, and they are in subjects that are irrelevant to your course (so if you are applying to read English, and have a 3 in Calculus), then it shouldn't be a problem.

    Every UK uni will require predicted grades unless you are applying with all your testing completed (ie, you already have all your APs done).
