    Ok Latin was the easiest exam ever, it was so faceroll. I finished in 25 minutes (we had an hour), and I reckon I can get 100% on that. Even the year 8s could do it.
    And then it turns out you misread all the questions and got a U

    I believe Meliss is confused because you didn't use a comma.

    It should be "You're going to attack us with a cucumber, Shadab?"

    Not "You're going to attack us with a cucumber Shadab?"

    A bit like:

    "Let's eat, Grandma"

    vs

    "Let's eat Grandma"

    Correct punctuation saves lives.

    Nope. It's primarily to ensure the 11 million illegal immigrants who currently live in the US are able to stay and work legally. There are parts meant to make it easier to work in the USA, but that's for Indian and Chinese immigrants, not British.

    Moving to the US from the UK will still be as hard as usual.

    UNfortunately, no. Don't get your hopes up, unless you are a genius mathematician, scientist, computer nerd, doctor or executive. It only makes it easier for a select group of people.

    If you graduate from a uni there (a top one), your life will be a lot easier.

    Not necessarily, Indians and Chinese make up the vast majority of immigrants to the US as it is.

    What exactly do you mean by "genius"... does something like having PhD from somewhere like Harvard/MIT count, or do you mean like Nobel prize / Fields medal winner etc?

    China and India are two prominent countries with large visa restrictions short of the creme de la creme. The Republicans agreed to a move which lowered said restrictions.

    The former, I used the word 'genius' to refer to people of superior intellect in the field of math. Doesn't the fact that they have completed a PhD indicate that they are more knowledgable?

    EDIT: A Nobel Prize winner would have no issues

    More knowledgeable for sure, but what constitutes a "genius" can be quite subjective

    Some people refer to that kid who gets straight A*s in secondary school as a "genius", while to some others, the term "genius" applies only to people like Einstein and Newton.

    I agree, it's very similar to the words 'rich' or 'wealthy' in that sense.

    ...Well...I like to think I fall into several of those categories (or will at the time I wish to emigrate) :mmm: I fully intend to gain a Ph.D/D.Phil (same thing) :lol:

    My Uncle and Aunt moved to Canada before moving to the US...perhaps you could go down that route?

    I'll just be moving to Hong Kong. I'm going to see if I can get a US green card though.
