I live in the US and am applying to a few schools in the UK this fall with UCAS. Does anyone know how to detail college credit in the “Education” section of the UCAS app? I took college courses in high school and earned some credits, but don’t know which type of “Qualification” it counts as.
A qualification is something completed, like a HS or AA degree. Your classes won’t count for UK applications, and the credits won’t transfer.
UK universities will be primarily interested in your standardized testing (APs, sometimes Subject tests) in courses that align with the subject you are applying to study. If you took classes that are directly relevant, you or (better) your referee can note that as evidence of the depth of your preparation and commitment to the subject- but the AP scores will still be what matters most.
