    Dont limit this thread only to AS and A2 students. We shall be posting here for all SLC graduates of Nepal and prospective high school students, including but not limited to +2 students,A levels students, CBSE students.

    (1) Ok, if any of the SLC graduates are reading this thread then let me tell u, START OFF EARLY. Students should start the college application process right after the SLC exams. In my opinion taking bridgecourse is a useless thing to do. The only fruitful thing of bridgecoursae is that u get to make new frens.
    Right after the SLC, students should start with atteding the Group Info sessions available at USEF. Here is the link [http://www.fulbrightnepal.org.np/] of USEF,Nepal. Goto their website for all kinds of information needed.

    Get involved in different clubs, lead programs, try to volunteer in NGOs.
    If you do things related to one field only, like social service, that looks really nice in your CV.
  • confidential2015confidential2015 Registered User Posts: 1,396 Senior Member
    About USEF, I personally don't like going to USEF. If you have got a resourceful GC and know how to utilize the internet properly, there is no point in going to USEF. But, if you don't have a GC and don't know the application process well, USEF can be helpful.
  • thestroxthestrox Registered User Posts: 13 New Member
    Once again thanks guys. @ confidential I didnt understand what GC means. By the way can you give some name of NGOs which u think is great for volunteering?
  • confidential2015confidential2015 Registered User Posts: 1,396 Senior Member
    ^^GC=Guidance Counselor

    BTW, which school are you from?
  • trinitiantrinitian Registered User Posts: 379 Member
    Do care about your academics too....Coz that counts when u look at rated colleges.But ECAs got to be by ur side....try to make ur self well rounded...

    well-rounded doesn't cut much anymore.

    Almost everyone applying to a great college has a 3.5+ GPA, 2000+ SAT, a few club leaderships, social service, and what not. The adventure is NOT complete there, that's just the bare minimum.

    I am not going to name a lot of specific schools, but most top ranked schools want "a rounded class of lopsided students".

    People who want more information should research college specific websites. There are certain key elements, which are obvious if thought of, that play a big more in admissions. Not that stuff can guarantee you in (ok... winning a Nobel Prize might), but everything done well will increase your chances.

    Well that was my opinion. I still believe well rounded does count much.

    But then again, This is true too.

    Hello Nepalese CCers! I'm not from Nepal but I'm interested to know whether you all take the CIE version of A Levels or have a local version (e.g. Brunei, Singapore, etc)
  • confidential2015confidential2015 Registered User Posts: 1,396 Senior Member
    We take the CIE version of A Levels and please call us Nepali CCers. :)

    ^ Apologies for that, Nepali CCers.
