Thank you. I performed very well in 9th grade. However I had some personal problems this year which dropped my grades drastically. I hope they will understand. \Very general question. Choose a degree that you know it guarantees entrance at AUB . Or choose another university with less demanding admission. Go to admission office at aub and check ur school if they have someone who can help in the uni admissions. Last but not least I know lots of cases who performed really above their average and did well last year : go to training course for SAT for example, put more time for studies. But I guess know what u want to work later and see if an easier degree or uni makes more sense
As of now I am a tenth grade student, and I performed very poorly this year compared to the rest of my class. If I do well next year (relative to my class at least), do I still have a chance of getting accepted to AUB in the future?
I already know what I want to study, but how can I prepare for this test? Are there any sources or whatnot that I can use?Make sure you study specifically for the Bullshit standardized test that they make you take. It means nothing and really tests nothing, but it is a very important prerequisite so if you target specifically how you study for it, you will do very well on it, and it will raise your chances significantly. So spend lots of time preparing for this thing.
What is more important, is try to figure out what you want to study and what you are naturally good at.
Thank you a lot for your reply! I feel much better now. Also, my innocence is long lost so me being on this forum doesn't really affect me
Contact amideast and ask when they have their next SAT prep course. Worth doing it before u do the exam. If it is too expensive for u buy few books and do self study .I already know what I want to study, but how can I prepare for this test? Are there any sources or whatnot that I can use?
All what admission office understands is good grades. It is an eliminating factor . Then comes ur personal statement for them to understand ur caseThank you. I performed very well in 9th grade.

I actually study British curriculum so I don't think I would benefit much from amideast. However for maths and whatever I'll self study. Thank you anyways. ?
This isn't related to the topic at all, but do you think I would be better off studying in the UK rather than in Lebanon?Yeah I did that. Was really helpful although i ended up not applying to AUB. But it's a good way to gauge your readiness for the real SAT test. They also have SAT preparatory courses. (Amideast should pay me for this free advertisement)
Will do! (That is if I do go to AUB)One more thing buddy. When you get into AUB, and if you follow my advice you will. remember this: From the first second you get in, and in fact before you set foot into this school, make sure you get your hands on older tests that have been given to students before you in previous years for the classes you want to take. This is the single most important task for you to do. Study these test like like crazy, thank me later.
Even if you get accepted to a lesser ranked school in the UK go there. You will get a better education, and be better prepared for the market place and you will have better opportunities upon graduation. If you then decide to go into academics you can target a top school for your higher degrees and PhD. Good luck.I'll see how it goes in the future. If I get accepted to a better ranked university in the UK I'll probably go there.
