UCL Human Sciences

I'm currently a sophomore looking to find out a bit more about schools in the UK for when it comes time to apply in a few years. UCL really stood out to me, as did their course in Human Sciences. However, I did have a few questions about this and the application process as a whole:

1) How popular/selective of a course is Human Sciences?

2) I'm scheduled to take two APs next year (US History, Psychology as they are the only ones offered to juniors), meaning that when it comes time to apply I won't have enough to meat the criteria, despite the fact I am taking three more senior year. I am not too interested in the foundations program offered as money is a concern and I would like minimize the financial burden. If I self-study for the AP exams, could these count? Or does it have to be a proper class?

3) If anyone is currently enrolled in this course, what are your opinions on it?

4) I read that I could substitute AP scores for SAT II scores somewhere...I'm not sure if this is true or not, so if someone could clarify, that would be fantastic.

Thank you!

Edit: Also, will my degree transfer without too much trouble if I want to apply to grad school in the US?
