Hmmm I wonder how they can use a non-standardized examination to "fill the game" for an internationally accepted exam? This transcript thing seems way more suitable for US admissions, rather than the UK.

How much did you raise?

Oh. as in they will put more emphasis on the A's, but this will serve as an indicator of sorts.

I think we had a $20000 profit. which was around what we planned for and expected.
You organised Viesta Soleil? Viesta Soleil was great. I actually went in '04 cos my senior in J2 at that time asked me to buy tickets. haha. the enthusiasim kinda rubbed off me ever since. lol.

haha. is your identity secret?

We're going to have this stupid "transcript" thingy at the end of this year(sec 4) which basically comprises of
1. Your EOY exam results
2. CT testimonial
3. CCA records and achievements

and to quote the head of my programme, " it will be used in UK admissions, to fill in the gap for GCSEs" !!!!!!!!!!

so although i've started revision for EOY(early october), haha.. this september holidays are set to be a mass mugging session.
Doesn't the UCAS application form take predicted GCSE results instead of actual EOY exam results? Hmmm. Predicted results always look sooo much better. :p:

Kino. I just got my reading list. *sobz.

Ends aside

Soooo. What's everyone up to nowadays?

But I'm proud of you/happy for you that you're going to go insane with all those books though. Have you bought/borrowed them already?

In my batch, that subject combination was the 2nd most popular (7 classes), just after the Triple Science+Maths combination (8 classes). The third most popular one was the Chem, Bio, Maths and Econcs combination (5 classes). I suspect the combinations involving Bio to dip in popularity over time as more and more people realise (and are convinced) that you do not need Biology to gain entry into a Medicine course in most countries, including Singapore and the UK.

And :five:; Literature is for the insecure. :vroam: :p:
