Yeah I'm pretty sure you do because A levels aren't the equivalent of sats. A levels are the equivalent to a GPA score.

Yes you're right, GPA means grade point average. It's the grade point average of your tests/exams in high school, and if you're not in an American high school or take AP tests, then your GPA would come from your A-levels (and they might look at your GCSEs too).

SAT is a standardized test, separate from your A-levels and your GPA. If you plan on applying to US universities, you would both need your GPA (A-levels and GCSEs) and SAT/ACT score, (maybe SAT Subject tests too, depending on the university and your preferred major).

Right... Well that would depend on your situation. Are you studying in the UK or are you an international student and which year are you in at the moment? Why do you not want to do GCSEs and A-levels?

You could potentially take International AP exams or do IB, but you would have to do some research into that and make a decision. But if you are a student in the UK system then I'd highly recommend that you follow the general route and do your GCSE and A-levels, otherwise I think you'd be making it more complicated for yourself for no reason. SAT subject test are not the same as your GPA, if I remember correctly, so you'd still have to present test scores from high school.
