I applied to lums this year but I couldn't get in. The reason for that I believe is my lack of a's in o levels. I've heard that they admit students with 6 a's or above. I have 4 a*'s, in maths, physics, islamyat and English. A in chemistry and b's in rest. I realize that they basically only see your a's in o levels. If you're 8 or 7 a's then you're definitely in. But a's are a little too LESS. :(
I'm thinking of applying again. And I need to know whether I would stand a chance. My dad asked the admissions office recently that should reappear in some o levels subjects to increase my number of a's and they flatly discarded the idea. They said that having 5 a's is not a problem and there is no harm in applying again. But I'm not at all convinced. During my sisters orientation last year they said that '80% of you have 6a's or above'. Now what does this show lums?
So I need to ask, what should I do to increase my chances of getting admitted? I had 3 a's and one b in alevels this year. In maths, physics, chemistry and aict respectively. So I'm in the safe zone here. I'll give sat 2 in November and hopefully ace it. Want is the minimum score I should get? (sat gives you an 'upper hand'). Then I'll join an academy for the entry test and ace that too, iA. Is this enough? What should I possibly do more? I really need advise so please help anyyyyyyyyyybody here.
