    Hey!
    I haven't seen much of last year's forum. I'm in Australia and just found a whole heap of stuff that didn't really apply to me.
    I've looked at my application but I haven't had much time to complete it yet.

    Hi guys!

    I haven't finished my application yet.... I have drafts of all my essay questions but no finalising yet and no confirmation from my references 😥

    How's your application going - what do you think of the questions?

    Just for clarity... what are your essay questions? From past applications I think I have different questions than you both.

    Last years is the most useful and it's nice because you see how gets in and who doesn't

    I'm from Australia! I think the questions change depending on what committee you're going through. Your topics sound really interesting though!!

    haha, I don't know. 400 words is a lot to right. but I have:

    250 words- Describe 3 to 5 hobbies or interests that you pursue (inside or outside of school).

    250 words- Take one activity that you enjoy, and explain how you feel it relates to any of the UWC ideals of peace, sustainability, and international understanding

    250 words-
    Tell us about something that changed your understanding or perspective of the world, in a small or a big way.


    then 400 words on each of those other questions

    Aight lads,
    I got to final stage interview in last year's applications but was told they could not send me to a college they believed I was suited to on account of my age (I'm not 16 yet, school year up). As disappointed as I was they have invited me back direct-to-interview with this year's applicants so hit us up if you have any questions about the application process an that.

    Hi guys,I'm also applying to UWC 2017 entry. I'm from Vietnam so I'm applying through my country's committee.From some replies above, I assume that the essay topics vary among different committees, is that right? For example, here in Vietnam we have to choose 2 out of 6 topics to write, with each not longer than one page's length, and here're what I choose
    1. In overcoming an obstacle, hard work pays off. More often than not, however, hard work is not enough. Which specific qualities, in addition to diligence, helped you achieve something you did?
    2. There is a saying "Let your life speak". Describe the environment in which you were raised, your family, home, community you have lived in, and how they have shaped who you are today.

    Hey people I am applying from India this year,
    Just submitted my Application Form.
    By the way does anyone know how the selection process is going to be like.There are a few more people from my school applying so will they only select one of us? Also I am doing the IGCSEs and I have a predicted 8 A* and I got 8 As in my Mocks. Is that going to be sufficient ?

    My national committee hasn't even opened their applications yet XD. I'm still so worried about the apps. Anyone else doing Pre-IB/MYP?

    Once you have finished your application there's a section where you fill in the contact details of your referencees and they'll send and email to them separately. Hope that helped
