Moving to the UK after doing only year 12.Watch
My parents are out of a job so i have to move to the UK to finish my a levels. However, I've been doing an international a level course and when I move back I do think it will not be international. It looks like I'll have to do year 12 all over again and be a year behind all of my friends. I feel like absolute garbage and I honestly feel like I've done so much work for year 12 and gotten these good grades and now it means nothing.
hopefully things will work out for you!! (i'm sure the work you did for year 12 will be helpful if there is similar content or you new school/future uni will look at your good grades!)
In terms of subject knowledge - for a lot of subjects there wouldn't be much issue, the content is pretty closely comparable. If you are taking subjects that have options, like english, maths (while this in the UK no longer has options, IALs still do) or history you'll have more problems since different schools will study different texts/papers.
In terms of finding a school/college that'd let you straight into Y13, I'm really not sure sorry. Wouldn't hurt to ask schools in the area you're planning to move to.
