How to utilize your two years in 11 and 12?

<p>Hey seniors. I would like to know how to utilize my two years of AS and A2 for university preparation? I will be very greatful for any suggestions.</p>

<p>Get involved in ECAs.</p>

<p>*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. *</p>

<p><a href="1">B</a>** 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 [<a href="http://www.fulbrightnepal.org.np/%5D%5B/url"&gt;http://www.fulbrightnepal.org.np/][/url&lt;/a&gt;] of USEF,Nepal. Goto their website for all kinds of information needed.</p>

<p>Thanks guys for your suggestions. Can u guys give name of some good places where i can do volunteering? By the way trinitian I am not limiting this thread to A-level students.</p>

<p>USEF USEF USEF!!!
And yes thestrox just keep track of confidential2015. He knows a hell LOTS of thing.</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>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?</p>

<p>^^GC=Guidance Counselor</p>

<p>BTW, which school are you from?</p>

<p>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...</p>

<p>^</p>

<p>well-rounded doesn't cut much anymore.</p>

<p>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.</p>

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

<p>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.</p>

<p>^^ :rolleyes:

Well that was my opinion. I still believe well rounded does count much.</p>

But then again, This is true too.</p>

<p>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)</p>

<p>We take the CIE version of A Levels and please call us Nepali CCers. :)</p>

<p>^ Apologies for that, Nepali CCers.</p>

<p>That was not a huge mistake!! We are changing from Nepalese to Nepali and many people still call us Nepalese which is fine but I just wanted to let you know the new change.</p>

<p>Oh I thought it was. Some people I know can get very annoyed when I make these kinds of mistakes.</p>

Why so?</p>

<p>Well..we used to be called Nepalese at first but we are people of Nepal so calling Nepali seems to be easier in practice.</p>

<p>Hey guys I am confused about Guidance Counselor. Is GC our relatives or someone who can help us in university preparation or they are someone we will hire?</p>
