Hello! I am currently a student in G12 in international school in Georgia with an IB diploma curriculum. I want to apply for international relations majors in the US and Europe (other countries is also under consideration). Im planning to work in the field of diplomacy in NGOs, since I found it inappropriate to work as an ambassador of my country, which is now occupied under the illegitimate regime of Luskeshenko (I’m from Belarus). I want to study in a school, which offers along with a strong department of politics and international relations, high-qualitative courses in languages.
stat and info ab me:
IB subjects and grades IBY1 (HL: Eng lang and lit - 5, History - 7, Glo Po - 7, Math AI SL - 7, Bio - 6, Belarussian self-taught - 7) overall 39/42
Duolingo English Test - 125 (planning to pass TOEFL on 110+)
1-10 Grade was in Belarusian state school - (sry i don’t know how to convert it to gpa still) grade 9 - 9.07/10.0, grade 10 - 9.3/10.0
Also a small question within: is it worth it to pass sat, despite the fact that it is optional this year in many universities and i prbly won’t get 1500+?
and, generally, if you have some tips for me, as for international student with high financial need, I would appreciate it a lot, since I am not really familiar with the topic of applying abroad. i was planning to apply only to Belarussian universities, but eventually won a scholarship to study in the IB program in Georgia.
Once more, thanks a lot for any help.
