    yes, are you driven enough? aim for top 5% of the class in your fringe and bangs end of year exam and that will look strong on your application.

    thats what most people would consider an introvert yes. also with regards to being too independent, id advise you to engage in any sort of extra curric which helps you to work in a team environment, even if you hate it at first you may grow to enage in them a lot which will be good
    Dude, I am one I would know.

    Honestly, look for the actual definition of introvert and extravert - instead of relying in stereotypes.

    Extraversion is "the act, state, or habit of being predominantly concerned with obtaining gratification from what is outside the self".[4] Extraverts tend to enjoy human interactions and to be enthusiastic, talkative, assertive, and gregarious. Extraverts are energized and thrive off of being around other people. They take pleasure in activities that involve large social gatherings, such as parties, community activities, public demonstrations, and business or political groups. They also tend to work well in groups.[5] An extraverted person is likely to enjoy time spent with people and find less reward in time spent alone. They tend to be energized when around other people, and they are more prone to boredom when they are by themselves.

    Introverts are easily overwhelmed by too much stimulation from social gatherings and engagement, introversion having even been defined by some in terms of a preference for a quiet, more minimally stimulating external environment.[9

    as i said, youre not going to be able to stay long in ib or consulting living a facade of being ok, it may sound like its doable but its not.

    Lol, nice one. You obviously got biased information - just look at how many more descriptive words there are for extraversion.

    Honest to goodness, there are tonnes of introverts in banking/consulting who are fine. I'm not easily overwhelmed by socialising lol, just tend to take a moment out for myself once in a while.

    Introversion is inward looking and contemplative, it doesn't preclude one from being a sociable human being.

    No, that is someone who has social anxiety issues.

    Introverts are just social people who highly value their alone time more than their extraverted counterparts.

    Actually if you're not at Harvard you're wasting your time. At Harvard, they call Cambridge "Canterbury Polytechnic"
    Harvard consists mainly of rich douchebags who are C grade students who pay others to take their tests for them, that is why athletes get in...

    Well they also have countless Asian valedictorians which I suppose balances it out.

    i joke, i kid. im doing math,fm,triple science, eng lit and lang,spanish, german, 1/2 latin, history, computing and RE at gcse, I hope to get about half and half as and a*s, is that good enough?
    For Oxford, yeah. Try and get a stars especially in the subjects that are relevant to your undergrad degree.

    I would suggest doing something which will allow you to develop your real life interpersonal and team-work skills. I am an online gamer myself, but nothing can replace real human interaction, especially when working in a team.

    Online communication is bare-bones. It does not prepare you for anything, except practicing your foreign language skills (as it is in my case - English is not my first language).
