Boys make friends in a different way from girls generally. Girls tend to be more cliquey (in my opinion), so the "new girls" who joined ACSI do not have problems mixing around

Twilight... i remember you giving me some advise some time ago. Have you completed your IB? Just completed last year?

Yup, I just graduated last year.

Hi twilight, hope you've done well. What's your plan? Can share? What will you be applying for?

I did very well, thank you.
I'll be going to Japan in April under the Japanese Government (MEXT) scholarship.

I got 45 points. :)

The MEXT scholarship is a scholarship provided by the Ministry of Education of Japan to students of many different nationalities (Asia, North America, Europe, Australia, Africa, most countries basically). They have the undergraduate scholarship and postgraduate scholarship. The undergraduate scholarship will pay for the tuition at any national university in Japan and provides a monthly stipend (about 120000yen per month. Accommodation is not provided though so it has to paid out of the monthly stipend). One has to do a year of Japanese language and then according to the results the government will allocate the university to the student. There is no restriction in major at all, just that some courses like medicine will undoubtedly be more competitive. Best part is there is no bond. So there are more options to university besides those in the usual UK, US and Singapore.

I intend to major in materials engineering.

Congratulations on the fantastic full pts score!!

Your parents must be very proud of you :)

So you'll have to live in japan for a while :)... Will the undergraduate course be conducted in Engliah or Japanese? Eg. Physics in Japanese?

All the best and take care

There are options to do the courses in English, but I feel it's ridiculous to go to Japan only to be taught in English.
