Does anyone have program suggestions for a sophomore looking to study abroad in the UK next summer? Any programs that you guys have heard that is decent and some-what worth the money? Or programs that you have personally gone through? Any input is much appreciated :]

    There is unfortunately probably little scope to do so. And unless you are studying for IB you would probably be quite a way behind the British students.

    I believe Oxford and Cambridge both have summer schools for high school students. Are you thinking of applying to Uni in the UK?

    I'm actually a pre-IB student at my school. It's one of the two schools with the IB program in our state. I think I am well prepared when it comes to doing stuff in the field of literature (comprehension, analyzing, etc), but I am horrible when it comes to math. I have a B in Algebra 2 :/ (maybe partly b/c our pre-IB courses are extraneous and that I have no time for math-pre-IB Bio (Biology SL at a slower pace), and World Experience (English, Philosphy, Sociology, World History (two period block class). But I heard that math in the U.K is very advanced compared to the US, is that correct? And I dearly wish to apply to a university in the UK :]

    My good friends has a really great blog about applying to uni in the UK and I attend St. Andrews as a full time student. Check out their blog:[url=http://theuniguide.****/]The Uni Guide[/url]
