From what I've heard you have to be more self-sufficient in the US when it comes to finance so you may want to earn money now.

As for an engineering degree do at least maths and one science. Two sciences would be better though. Which subject depends on which branch of engineering you want to do

Nice GCSE results. I can't advise you on A level subjects, but good luck with the horrendous fees in America.

If you are wanting to engineering you might want to think about putting further maths in your A Levels?

Do you have dual citizenship by any chance? Obviously there are benefits of going to America to study but there are negatives as well - the fees are very very high, and an undergraduate degree from the US is not worth as much as an undergraduate degree from the UK.

I don't know that much really as all my research was somewhat superficial, but definitely things to consider.

Religion is like a penis.
It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.
