During my gap year, alongside completing the extra A-levels I mentioned above, I intend to grow as a person by participating in all kinds of other extra-curricular activities. I might take up a summer job in the US/UK, volunteer abroad or in India, learn foreign languages,etc.
I am not sure if this would count as a possible disadvantage, but the school in which I study (though an international one), is a 10000 sq. feet shabby building without even a playground, let alone proper facilities or opportunities for students. The teachers are great, but the management is abominable!
I intend to apply to the following schools-
Oxford- Economics and Management
Errr, so your question is what are your chances of getting into good university over here?
It goes without saying that good grades give you a better chance of getting in, and you'll have plenty to fill up your personal statement with, but we're not university admissions people so we can't possibly tell you what we don't know.
What an original way to show off... I should try it sometime!
so whats the problem here???
What do you think my chances are of getting into my chosen schools?
You need to be focussed on your course rather than the institution for your personal statement. Otherwise you won't get in anywhere.
Also, you can only apply to five institutions.
