    Hello guys !
    I don't care about anything as long as I am going to one of the top 100 universities in the world with full scholarship.

    I'm Mongolian. I did A-level exams. In AS-level AAC in math, bio and chemistry respectively.
    I'm expecting my A-level grades to be ABC or AAC or even BBC in those 3 subjects. My results will come in this August.

    My IELTS score is 7.5. L-7.5 R-8 S-7 W-7

    My secondary education certificate grades are all A's excepts B's in physical education and physics.

    I'm preparing for SAT I and SAT II ( math, bio, chem and physics ). I will take those exams in October. ( Just in case for American universities )

    I don't have extracurricalar activites. I just go to a church and that is it.

    What do you think about my grades ?
    Is full scholarship possible ?
    What are best scholarship programs and their deadlines ?

    Why do you need a scholarship so bad?

    What universities are you considering? Your grades are weak so I doubt you're going to get a full scholarship. I don't mean to be rude but you have eyes bigger than your head.

    A-level result ABC or ABB isn't weak IMO.

    It is to ask for a full scholarship with.

    "top 100 universities in the world with full scholarship,"
    "

    I told him what I personally think. Which is what he asked for. I do not believe that admission to one of the top 100 schools with predominantly B's and C's at A-Level will be sufficient. Most applicants having done a-levels will surely have four AS Levels. That is the first weakness. Many American Colleges are in the top 100, lack of extra-curriculars means he's weak for these too. Then, he would like a full scholarship and as an International student, it's only really the Ivies that offer decent aid packages like that for International students and that makes competition even harder for him and with the lack of extracurriculars and A's in his subjects, he's going to be weak. I do agree, that his grades are good especially for a person who clearly didn't learn English as a first language. However, I will be honest and say I believe he has eyes bigger than his head because a lot is going to disadvantage him in competition for those top schools. I'm not saying he won't get into one but his chances are significantly lower, clearly. "IMO".
