International Transfer Student and HighSchool Transcript?
Hi there guys,
So I'm an international student who is interested in transferring here from a UK University. Allow me to explain my situation.
I've done my research and have found a few universities that I'm interested in. The part where I'm sort of disturbed is the high-school result requirement. Well, I mean from where I'm from, it's really just Year 7 to Year 11 and then O'Level exams, in which I should mention that my grades and performance were terrible. I doubt my high school kept my Year 7 to Year 11 transcript anyways.
I've cleaned up my act after that though and went through a Pre-University pathway. Now, I'm done with my first year of University in the UK with a First Class Honours result (A Average).
So I guess what I'm asking is, do the Universities here greatly take high school results into account? In my case, that was 6 years ago (Year 11). Yeah I know, I took a 1-2 gap years to get some work experience and etc.
I should also mention that my family had a dispute with the school about fees and stuff. So I'm not sure if they are willing to send anyway.
So what's the best way to strategically handle this in terms of making my application look good?
Also, any good universities that don't require SAT/ACT's for International Transfer applicants?
Thanks guys <3
