If you fail to get into top U.S. universities, then you would stay back for 1 extra year of ACTP.

So, on whether you would spend 4 years in U.S. universities, it is up to you on whether you put in the hard work.

The session in the post immediately above is very good. Mr. Kevin Sim, a famous counselor in Singapore, has helped many students getting into Ivy League universities and he would be sharing with students, so do RSVP with Adrian.

If you do not put in hard work now and yet expect to get into top U.S. universities, I would say the chance is very low.

Work hard from now, and you can ask those who have made it before, it is really hard work.

Focus on what you could do, rather than whether you are in ACTP/ADFP. If you can get into top U.S. Universities, you would go after 1 year. If you fail to get into those universities, the person to blame is you, and not JPA. JPA can only provide you golden opportunities to go to top U.S. universities, but if you waste the opportunities, it is your fault.

JPA students at INTEC have gotten into all of the top U.S. universities, so it is definitely possible for some of the current batch of students (your batch) to get into top U.S. universities, but the question is who among you all. Can all of you get into those top U.S. universities. There is no quota limited for any of those top U.S. universities. Raffles Junior College, Singapore has about 50-80 students who get into Cornell each year, and why there are only a few from Malaysia? We used to have a very large number of Malaysians who get in. The problem is we don't even have 50 Malaysians who apply.

Prepare well for it. Make use of the opportunities provided. Discover U.S. Education - KL '07 is definitely one of those events you should go and learn from the best of the country. There are at least 30-40 Malaysians who have studied at those U.S. universities that JPA approve for you to go for 4 years, and you should prepare well and learn from them. Don't ask for spoonfeed, and seek their guidance.

Work hard!
thanks for all the info!

The earliest you can go is after 1 year cause you need at least 12 years of formal edu. You will be doing your SAT SATII, TOEFL by the the first year unless you do not want to.

You can apply only after you got your SAT results and all.

And after one year, you can and should apply for whichever uni you want regardless whether they accept our credits or not. If they accept our credits then you can jump straight to year 2(cause you learn all the year 1 subjects already) or if not then start from the beginning.
Ouch. Since I am a PTS student, does the 12 year education apply to me as well?
I think it should be fine if you explain to them. After all NYU just appointed two new lecturers/professors who are some teenage girls from Russia.

Is it possible to take any AP courses (by studying on your own) in addition to ADFP/ACTP/AUP?

I was actually referring more to the workload/time constraints...I've started reading for AP Chem and Bio already but I'm not sure if I will be able to continue doing that once I start whatever program JPA puts me into.
