    If you've already completed A-Levels, what's the point in going back to a U.S high school?
    i can do different subjects, for one thing. have a few more subjects under my belt plus there are classes for advanced students so i could take those. the big point is that ill get to see america/americans!

    firstly applying is a complicated bussiness and u might want to set some time aside to undertake it (like half term). there is a common application system that many top unis accept and that will cut doen time but on top of this each will want its own forms filled out both by you and your teacher. the deal with A-levels is u can subsitute the SAT 2 tests for a-levels in some big unis like harvard and yale but only if you have them so predicted grades are no good to you. the SAT1 test is mandatory and i just booked mine the SAT 2 test will usually be asked for as well. i took my SAT 2 a few weeks agao and i can say it felt very foreign, i took biology writing and literature and got mixed scores. my advice would be to take the tests seriously because you have to pay for them and its a good back up if u screw up your A-level finals.
