  1. Lol. Self study whole IB + do all the coursework within 5 months and get 40+? Get out...
  2. It really depends on your group of people. If they're immature, they will exclude you etc... Just be nice to everyone, take initiative and help them with subjects you're confident in. You'll be fine. Good luck.
  3. Is it possible to be penalized for plagiarism in an exam paper? (e.g. Eng Lit, cramming online analysis etc.)
  4. There are approx 2 and a bit months left till final exams. How are you guys structuring your study plan? Just curious, please share! I don't have one yet, that's why I'm asking ^^
  5. What have fees go to do with anything? Sure you can't always say greater fee = better education, but there must be some truth/correlations to it. They have more students + greater fees = more funds on educational resources, training etc. ;whether the extra fees are spent efficiently or not. Oxford is not exactly short of money, regardless of the fees. You're not getting my point. The base/fundamentals of America's educational system is superior than that of UK because of the extra money (not just slight 'extra') spent on developing it continuously in the long term. It's not something you can

  7. Harvard for better education, resources and support... Just look at the fees, it's almost like tripled that of in UK universities? (don't quote me on this, this is what I heard from others).
  8. Thank you for taking the time to write this! Warwick is 38 points overall (with no subject point requirement) in case you wondered. I don't think I'd get lower than a 5 in Math HL but as you said, anything could happen in the finals and I think I should consider the worst case scenario. But man, everyone (at school) tells me how Edinburgh is so gorgeous and famous . . . etc. And unfortunately, Edinburgh shows detailed descriptions of its course modules offered while Birmingham doesn't (so I can't really comment which one I like more). Do you think the fame of Edinburgh is worth all the risk? C
  9. Hello guys, I am an international applicant from Hong Kong. I have received offers from Universities of Warwick, Birmingham and Edinburgh. I believe I will be firming Warwick (Management). But I need help in deciding which to insure. Both courses at Birmingham and Edinburgh are 'International Business with Japanese' (1 year abroad in Japan). In terms of reputation, the winner has to be Edinburgh? Many people also tell me Edinburgh has great city life, but that's not an issue as I don't particularly enjoy going out drinking, partying and getting drunk... I just want somewhere where I will be ta
  10. I don't know the answer to it. But I'm just commenting to say: I love Christina too!!!
  11. I think economics is very self-taught-able, if you put in the effort. And AP, it's not bad, do consider it. Good luck x)
  12. Well, actually, being brought up bilingual, like many in my family were, means they don't have to work at it at all as it is just natural to them. It is a lot easier than learning it at an older age as well. However, don't think I'm denying that it was hard, because I know being brought up bilingual is just as confusing. I just agree with many others in saying that if you speak a language fluently and are doing it as a language B, you're just taking the easy way out and I don't think its always right or even fair on other students. Also, I have to mention that if it is English in question, I
  13. Well you could also argue that it's not fair to people who had to genuinely work hard at a younger age to achieve such fluency in their second language, and that it is even more unfair that these overachievers have to abandon their absolute advantage of getting a higher grade for university acquired from their genuine hard work at younger age due to some other person who initially lacked the effort to develop their second language to these overachiever's level of fluency at the first place. These overachievers should have the freedom to choose whether to study language A or B, as they have dec
