I have no idea what admissions boards will think. I suppose you'd do better to talk to guidance counselors about resitting CIE, and you'd have to explain it in your college application. Don't forget...

Re: Hopeless to Harvard

Most professors have TAs who normally serve the purpose of assisting students outside of class hours, but that's why they're called 'teaching assistants'. They provide help outside of class, they...

Re: Do you love Malaysia?

day_dreamer, I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on what should be done to turn Malaysia around, if it is as bad as you say. I feel that the question of what we can and should do is something...

Re: Do you love Malaysia?

Going off on a tangent, it seems to me that in many cases, the person XXX doesn't seem to be aware that the JPA (for example) scholarship is not the only one, or even the most desirable, around, if...

Re: Regarding the requirements for JPA

Just a heads up, guys: remember that JPA is not the only (or necessarily the best) scholarship around, and it's not a perfect scholarship either. ;) So do try your best in applying for it, but apply...

Re: US Universities Application FAQ V.2

No, you don't have to study more years to get your degree. You just spend the remainder of your 4 undergraduate years taking classes your major requires (and also other fun ones, of course). Usually...

Re: Books worth reading

Granted, I've never actually managed to finish any book by Meyer, but based on the little I've read, I'm tempted to go with Stephen King on her work: "Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s...

You don't need to have a major called 'Biotechnology' to be a biotechnologist - the word itself describes an industry rather than a specific field of study. I can only speak from the POV of US-bound...

Re: FAQ about TOEFL, SAT 1 , SAT 2 and US University Application

You don't have to "memorize" them, rather get used to their meaning and how they are used in sentences. True, most of the words you learn won't come out in the real exam, but how would you know which...
