Well, as the title says, I m moving to usa this summer and I m going to 11th grade. But im wondering what ll happen to the credits I should ve gotten if I completed 9th and 10th grade. Will I have to do tests to get them or do extra school years or my rec

Answers:

When my daughter switched from a British to an American school after her GCSEs, they tested her to see where to place her. She had an A at GCSE in French but they put her with the 14 year olds. That was hilarious and they were not wrong.

For most subjects she was put into the AP class. Americans do not learn to write properly argued essays until they get to university. The sciences were a bit of a mess as for some reason in the US they do not study them concurrently so I forget what happened there.

Mostly she was well ahead despite being a bit of a goof-off artist. I do not know what you mean by 'credits'. For her university applications she had to submit both her GCSEs and her US results. She was shocked to find that every single piece of US homework counted towards her grade. She was used to sleeping through class and scrambling just enough to pass the exam.

At least you know English cause it's similar to the us stuff , almost the same . Anyway it depends on what part of the us you go to

The US will require your academic transcript. Not your report card, your official academic transcript. They will elvaluate it and decide where you are at, what classes you need to graduate.

Your parents should be in contact with your US school now. They should have your transcript sent before you leave,
You will probably need a to have a physical form filled out and have proof of immunizations.

There are plenty of clubs, organizations and sports at US HS, join something, it is a good way to meet students in a smaller social situation

You will probably receive automatic credit for the first two years as British schools are good. The math class and foreign language classes that you are put in will depend on what you have already taken.

That's up to the schools and no two schools have the same requirements. Your folks (guardians) should have that all figured out ahead of time.
