    I ended up going to Community College, unfortunately after having a confirmed place at the University of Kent as the Dept of Education doesn't fund International Foundation Programmes.

    Fast forward to now, and I've a 3.82/4 GPA in my business course, which's fine and all but I'd like to go to the UK as I had planned. However, I still have yet to take the SATs, and don't plan on doing so, ergo I've to find Universities that will accept just this.

    So far I do know the University of Kent will accept me based off of my GPA, and LSE would consider me (If I had taken AP Calculus BC that's.). However I'm unsure of any other University. If you know any off hand, I'd appreciate it. Naturally I'll continue looking.

    . I assume they are necessary as they are the necessary and standard pre req for most uni courses . What course are you applying for ? But assuming your qualifications are equivalent and acceptable in lieu of A levels . I would assume your fine .
    You should call Kent and LSE admission's office and explain your situation , Admissions Offices are friendly and will provide you with the right information What other UK Uni's are you applying for ?

    I said that Kent and LSE don't require the SAT (Kent requires a 3.0 GPA, LSE a 3.3-3.5) Neither does Queen Mary's. Most Universities do require them, that's the fact of the matter. However, I don't want to take the SATs, because I quite frankly don't have the time to properly review the material.

    As per your question I'm looking at Kent as my ultimate backup, because they ****ed me by not awareing me on the lack of funding for IFP's. I'll probably apply to QMUL for Economics, and I'm searching for some others. i contacted the University of Essex (Previously I held an offer there, but chose Kent over it at then time.), and City, University of London. Although, I'm unsure about London thanks to all the terrorist attacks that have been occurring.

    Most universities have really detailed sections of their websites dedicated to international qualifications so you might have luck checking those for all the universities you're interested in, then e-mail admissions offices like you did to LSE/Kent if you don't find the information you need. As long as you have AP's under your belt already you shouldn't have too much of a problem applying to some UK universities, although most do want to see an SAT score from American applicants - even those already in college.
