Hi there, I'm an english student (18), currently at university (three year course). I'm hoping to apply in my final year, this is the only way I can be sure that the USAF has enough information about me that they can actually review. The education system is different in structure than it is in the states and our GCSE's are rougly equvilent or better to/than the ACT's. I did very well in these however did NOT do so well at 'A-level' (abysmal). I hope to make up for this at university where I'm taking a joint honours course; mixing practical psychology (high competancy in mathmatics/science required) and international relations (High level of english language skills required), where the added bonus of the marking system being much closer to the USA equivalent. This will also allow me to participate in a greater range of extra curricular activities and sports which were not available in 'sixth form' (approximate/comparable to the last two years of high school. However, they are seperate edit: seperate from secondary school years). In the UK there are no formal transcripts of our secondary school lives; the system relies on referances, quotes, written application letters and final grades presented on certificates with very little raw data to review. I'm wondering; If I were to apply; how might the USAFA evaluate me? Also; are there many english/british cadets at the Academy or have there ever been? As I'm not sure our M.O.D. participates in the international programme; does the academy accept english appllicants? Would it be to my benefit to take the U.S. S.A.T.s or A.C.T.s?
