    Hi OceanWave.

    If you have done A-levels in Singapore, wouldn’t it more convenient to come to the UK rather than the US to pursue your higher education?

    oceanwave, the best answers you can get will be by researching universities yourself. You know best what you're looking for and what you need, and each school's website will contain information for international students looking to be admitted. And each school will have somewhat different requirements.

    New school years usually start in August/September, and you usually aim to submit your application by November/December of the year before. However, many schools will also let you begin at different times. Again, that is something that will vary per school.
    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.

Next is the different admission seasons summer/fall/etc intake which i do not seem to understand how it will affect me?

    That depends on the school.

    I've completed half of the application form on the online application website and have yet to finish the rest as there are some terms that i need to clarify: assuming grade 1 is primary 1 in my system, would grade 11/12 mean pre-uni education?
    Yes.

    next: what are the months for spring/fall intake?
    I already said fall is august/september, spring (or winter, different schools call it different names) is January/February, domestic students usually plan on having their application submitted 10-12 months ahead of time, but it's probably different for international students, and will depend on the school.

    I will say again a large amount of these things are specific to each school. Things are not very standardized in the states when it comes to that. The school websites will be your main source of information, and contacting school administrators through email or phone will be your second source of information.
