    Hi, I am a 10th grader living in California, earning relatively low As, and high Bs. After my 10th grade year, I will be moving to England, and enrolling in a British Boarding school. However, this means I will be missing out on my GCSEs and only be able to do my A levels. Do GCSEs matter a lot? Also, would selective universities look at my 9th and 10th grades? Thanks.

    if you've done an equivalent to gcse, which would be high school official exams then yes you can. not sure what they do over in usa for high school exam but im assuming you've done them in maths and english, then that's enough.

    I think ihatepe is right, they'll see what you did as equivalent. However to ease your mind find a university you'd be interested in and email their admissions office to ask, at the end of the day only they can say what their requirements are
