Is this a good Application/ CV for top universitiesWatch
I'm planning to work extra hard to utilize all the opportunities my school will provide me with during the two Alevel years so I can build a scholarship worthy CV.
Will the following make a decent CV. hopefully i can get this far in two years. :
-8 straight A's at OLevel
-3 A/A* at Alevel
-Decent SAT scores
-Certificate for being active member of WWF
-Spreading awareness among community for WWF
-certificate of good achievement in IKMC or IKLC
-participation and management of MUN
-participation in international Olympiad
-Active Management of Literature Club during Alevel
certificates for playing badminton, participation in speech competitions during the course of Olevels.
please suggest anything more I can do to strengthen my CV. I dont do sports now
OP, I don't think you should give up on sport altogether. Academics are important, but extracurriculars are too, not just for your university applications but also for your general health and wellbeing.
A* at OLevel started in 2013 I think. But its true you can Google it. I do cycling for health but that can't go into CV can it? so would my CV be good enough the way I stated it above?
Certainly in the UK, for Oxford or Cambridge they are only interested in academics, but for other universities who are renowned for IT such as Bristol, Manchester, Southampton, they are interested to hear in your personal statement about everything that you are about (including why you want to study overseas).
