gpa im low sat exam high
Answered

My GPA is 2.0 but my SAT exam is 1500 points. I want to study architecture at the University of Manchester. Do you think my SAT score will compensate for my GPA? Also, what should I do to get accepted from this school? Also, I will study as an international student.

I recommend trying to get your GPA higher. Taking advanced courses (Honors, AP, Dual Enrollment) can raise your GPA. BUT as a university in the UK they look at things differently (Instead of GPA, they usually consider A-levels, International Baccalaureate (IB), or equivalent qualifications). I recommend reaching out to a high school counselor and have them help you understand what you would need to attend the University of Manchester.
