American System vs A levelWatch
You can still get into an American University with A levels, you would probably have to take some extra exams once you're in year 13 (second year of a level) such as the ACT but they can be studied for over summer. In the end either option yields good results for your future in the long run, so in the end its just down to your particular preference. Would you rather specialise in a few subjects that you enjoy or broadly learn lots of subjects
Good luck with it all
Anyway, doesnt matter if you take A Level or IB, for US unis you will need to take SAT or ACT exams. Check with the unis you want to apply to.
Hi I have been in a dilemma for a few months. I am currently at an international school in Asia that has A Level, but no IB or anything resembling the American system. I am finishing my IGCSEs this year and have the option of staying in my school or going abroad to the US. I would like to stay, but my biggest concern is that A Levels might be easier and I don’t reach my full potential? I don’t know. It’s just that I want to go to a US university and am worried that A Levels wouldn’t get me far. Coz as i can see so far, I just find the GCSEs so easy and my friend in America is doing such complicated stuff. Can anyone help out? Are a levels on the same level or lower?
