I’m planning on transferring to a different school, I want to study the IB program and wanted to know my chances of being admitted into Insitut Le Rosey. I’m finishing up my 9th grade and I currently study the Ontario Curriculum at a Canadian School. I will be applying for the 10th grade. My grade this year and last year is 90.6%, it should be a 4.0 GPA if I am not wrong. I’ve been on the honour roll (you need 85% + to be on the honour roll) ever since I have started studying at my current school. I have studied french for almost three years now and am able to speak basic french. I am fluent in english and chinese. I could also speak basic malay as well. I don’t participate much in extracurriculars in my school but have done a lot of volunteering work so far. I’ve accumalated 62 hours of volunteering work this year and will be going on a voluteering trip to Cambodia to teach children for more than a week. I also have a job shadowing experience at a local clinic lined up in a few weeks. I might be able to get an internship if I am interested and have time to do so during the holidays. Even though I am not as involved in exracurriculars, I am a participant in my school’s Debate Team, History Team, Mandarin Club and People to People International Club (PTPI). I also play the piano, I’ve just recently started learning it and I am currently in the 3rd grade. I will also be preparing for the piano exam next year to complete 3rd grade. I’ve skipped 2nd grade for piano and only took the 1st grade, my score was considered a merit and was lacking only a few more marks to achieve distinction. I started playing the guitar since July as it was a requirement for my music class but I found it fun. I used to take ukulele lessons but I could still play it.
I’m not sure if where I’m from helps but I am from Malaysia and come from a upper middle class family. My family are not alumnus at any popular or exclusive colleges and such as well. I won’t say financial aid is necessary for me but I think it will strain my parents a bit. I want to be more independent and not rely on them too much seeing as how much they already paid for the school I am currently studying in. I have also skipped 6th grade and would like to know if that will affect my chances or cause any issues.
