    Greetings all! I've been browsing around and I find this forum very interesting! So, I'm a third year in undergrad at Harvard University over in the States. I'm originally from NYC. Unfortunately I haven't visited the UK but I will someday!!

    I didn't know that! So you're in high school then! I bet the A levels are as much of a pain in the ass as the SATs we have in the States! After I complete uni, I need to take another standardized exam called the GRE for graduate school. They never end!

    I love how people outside the US are so much more clever about everything in general. I want to be like youuuu. :P

    Well sort of, a step up from high school, but a step down from uni is where A levels are

    Yep, A levels are such a pain D: Though im finishing next week, cant wait

    Yep, exams never end haha.

    Are we really clever? lol. I always thought the US had the cleverest people! (except for your politicians =P)

    You could come to the UK for postgrad and then you wouldn't have to take the GRE (but you would have to pay a lot of tuition fees!). Welcome to TSR .

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! Haha I could go to the UK for postgrad! I really want to do a summer study abroad thing, but yeah I'd have to pay an arm and a leg ;P Maybe it will happen if I get a scholarship or something.
