    Hey everyone, I'm applying to Sciences Po but am quite confused. Please help me with these problems
    1) They ask for transcripts but I'm in my A2 year so I don't have certificate or anything. What should I send them?
    2) What type of CV do they want? Is it similar to a work CV? Can I write it with bullet points?
    These may sound dumb but please help me. Thanks so much!

    Hi! I'm sorry, I can't answer your first question, I don't know what A2 is, I just sent them my grades for the 1st trimester this year, and grades from the 2 previous years.
    Yes, the CV is work-cv format, you might want to add more info on extracurricular

    Awesome I'm from prague but I have family in autstralia yeah the interview is 30 min.
    First we have to sum up and give our opinion on an article for 10 min, then 10 min question time and the last 10 are usually questions about your cv and motivation at least thats what my teachers told me

    I have applied for the UCL-Science Po Dual Degree!

    Getting slightly nervous since I applied in Oct and haven't heard anything yet, apart from having to write an additional statement for Science-Po in Nov......

    I initially wanted the Paris Campus but I am so busy I can in no way study to take C1 French right now, so I have applied for Dijon! :-)

    Transcript is usually the American word for School Report! So they probably want your GCSE and AS Statement of Results/Certificates and maybe your end of year report for Year 11/12

    Thanks for the kind words Yeah, I usually keep up to date with current affairs but I've been reading the NYT and The Economist lately. It's a little daunting to think that I will have to present an analysis on one of such articles!

    Hey guys,

    I had my interview a few days ago and wanted to know exactly how important it is in the admission process... Do they value your essay, CV and other documents you originally sent in less than the interview? Or is the admissions panel more interested in what you know about the area you're choosing to specialize in and how you've demonstrated it in the personal statement? Thanks!!

    Hi! How did your interview go? Like I've said before, sometimes the jury has already decided if you are you are not admissible before the interview. But when they are undecided, the interview plays an important role. The final panal will evaluate all the parts of your application I think, they should according to their website I think the interview is to test your critical thinking skills as well as oral

    Hi! The interview didn't go badly (I think) -- but I can't stop thinking about things I brought up during the discussion!! The panel really tests your nerves! How about you, did you get invited for an interview?? And if so, at what campus?
