    Dw man!!!
    As someone who's applying to Education City Universities in Qatar, I totally feel it.
    To be honest, your SAT score isn't bad. I know a person who studies at Georgetown Qatar and I asked him the average SAT scores of the C of 2023. Unofficially, he told me Georgetown had an average SAT of 1150, so it's good. Plus, the university states it had an acceptance rate of 50% last year, which is competitive but not very hard to get into.

    But yea, I'll say that ace other parts of your application to have a good shot of getting in. I still know people with 1400s who are also applying. I am applying to Texas A&M Qatar and Carnegie Mellon Qatar.

    I have almost similar stats like yours. I have 6A* 2A 1B in O Levels. 2A 1B in AS, with 1A* 2A predicted A2 grades. 1300 SAT, which I believe is not very great but still a decent score for these universities.

    As for the ECs, I am the founder of a nonprofit charity in my country with government support and mass level plantation drives and awareness campaigns in 7 cities of the country. I've developed an environmental sustainability mobile application which is under testing. I am a national level artist. I've won a few district-level awards in table tennis. Runners up in national Balsa Wood Glider competition. a few other awards too...

    Honestly, I would suggest you nail the essays and your recommendation letters. These are the most under-estimated parts of the application, and they carry a lot of weightage. Develop strong relations with your teachers over the years so you can get strong recommendations. Be yourself in your essays...

    I would like if we can talk over this as it could help us both...

    The CWE was pretty interesting, they focus more on the sentence structure and basic grammar rather than the content itself, there are three essay topics to choose from and we have to build our argument by giving examples. The topics are pretty general and they do not require any prior knowledge at all in fact I had fun while writing my CWE

    They waived my CWE because I submitted my SAT Essay Score instead.
    Does anyone know about the interview invitation send-out date (as discussed in GUQ '23's thread)?

    Do they send in waves or something? So worried I haven't received any. @adensuleman May I ask what is written in the email? Did they say you were among the selected applicants to be invited to the interview round?

    I don't think you should be worrying about it. Interviews arnt an indication of admissibility of an applicant. Or they can even send you an invite for it later in Feb maybe.
    The email for the invite was pretty simple and said that I should register for my Interview asap. That's about it I guess.
    Best of luck!
