I am thinking about doing a computer science degree in the US. However, I have heard that you need SAT or ACT scores to put on your application. The thing is, I am starting Year 12 in September and I would be applying to universities in Year 13. I don’t think I have enough time to study for it and get a good enough score to have a good chance at getting into any good universities there. Do I absolutely have to submit either an ACT or a SAT score, or are there any kind of exceptions/alternatives for British students?

I'm not sure but I think you might have to... A girl in my form who was in year 12 applied to US unis and was always studying for the ACT during form time. You can definitely find the answer on google though, just look at whichever unis you're interested in online and they'll have a set of requirements for international students
