Issue concerning US schooling
Im studying AS (1st year of GCE A Level) right now, and I am having thoughts regarding further education in the US. A few questions are listed below:
What Qualifications other than ACT and TOFEL do I need to meet the entry requirements of US colleges?
Which top tier university in the US accept IELTS? ( I passed it with 8.0)
How does the American college structure differ from the British uni structure?
Which uni would be great in the subject I intend to study: major Psychology, in addition to English/ creative writing.
How should I prepare to increase the chance of getting into top schools such as UCLA and Princeton?
many thanks xxx

1. You may be required to submit SAT II subject test results.
2. You will have to check with each one. Bottom line - IELTS is a U.K. exam and TOEFL is a U.S. exam.
Without a doubt - TOEFL is always preferred.
3. Totally different - for example, there is no such thing as Honour Degree. Also, it is rare that the U.S. degree requires a thesis.
And the bottom line - The U.K. system is a 3-year system (align with GCS A-level). The U.S. system is a 4-year system.
4. No recommendation.
However - a friendly reminder - Psychology is a regulated professional in the U.S. So there is a licensing process. Bachelor degree is simply not enough to be a licensed psychologist.
5. Your natural chance for Princeton is higher than UCLA due to admission policy. UCLA is a public school. So admission opportunity is reserved for California residents in the majority.
Any non-mandatory community service helps.
