How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Hey! So I'm a UK GCSE student that moved to the US right after my GCSE's and before A-levels. Do your A-levels, 100%. Not only does it complete your UK education, but incase the MIT application doesn't work out, you will be able to apply to local colleges.
I am doing a few AP's here, and they are about as difficult as A-levels, so if you wanted, pick just one AP which is similar to your a-levels and take a practice exam for it, and if your score doesn't turn out too good, don't take the AP exams. Otherwise, you can, but I don't think it would add too much to your application. Doing the ACT or SATs would, however, since every kid in the country takes them and if you take them, you can be compared to them and as thus making it easier for the college admissions office to make a decision.
To summarize: do the ACT/SAT, it is more useful for college's here than the AP's. There are also subject SATs, which are probably a better idea than AP exams, as they tend to be shorter, less intensive, and still very useful in admissions.
