  1. I'm in Pre-IB grade 10 (MYP5) class in an international school in Stockholm and it's actually my first year in an English speaking school (I've always been in a French school). I plan to become a psychiatrist and therefore need to study medicine then specialize in psychiatry (Ph.D. level studies). My dream is to study at an Ivy league school, mainly Harvard. I don't know what subjects to take next year, but do you think this looks good: HL: Biology, Psychology, English B SL: Maths, French self-taught, Global Politics (As you can see I haven't chosen other sciences than biology (psychology is in an individuals and societies subject at my school) and that's because I am not good at sciences and don't like chemistry or physics, I hope that's fine. I also took French because I don't want to forget it as it is my second mother tongue. Do you guys think I should switch French with something else (and work on French alone at home)? I don't know if this will count in my application process for Harvard but I did the "brevet" (national test of France at the end of 9th grade) and got a 654.4/700 which means 93% correct. Otherwise my current extracurriculars: - I do road cycling with a cycling club, now in the winter, we do spinning (indoor cycling) twice a week (an hour each time) and I train on my own on the other days for at least 90 minutes (it varies between cycling, strength training at gym or just bodyweight workout). I also go for a run with my friend during the lunch break on Tuesdays and Fridays for 30minutes (3-4km) at an easy pace and we then do a 15 minutes bodyweight workout. In overall, I consider myself an active person (maybe even VERY active: I make sure I walk every day at least 10000 steps). - I participated in September 2017 in a cycling race. I cycled 60km, there wasn't any ranking (it isn't really a race, you just cycle) and my speed was normal, I guess. I have only been road cycling for some months but I dream of becoming as good as a pro cyclist and I'm training hard to reach that goal. - I am a member of "Djurens Rätt", Sweden's biggest animal rights non-profit organization; I have been participating in some protests. - I have a blog (started it for my personal project) and I basically journal interesting stuff happening in my Active life. I mainly want to show people how they could have a healthy lifestyle. I am not promoting my blog or anything but if you want to give feedback, here it is: MY BLOG - I tutor two young Swedish girls, I teach them English twice a week, 1.5hrs each time and get money for it. - I am really struggling with finding other things to do because I know this is a VERY important part of the application process. I do want to do some academic competitions but there isn't really such in Sweden, and if there is, it probably is in Swedish which I can't really understand. Otherwise, I obviously plan to take the SATs but maybe next year. Please advise me on what I can do as extracurricular activities or anything? Also how to improve chances of getting into Harvard?

  3. So tomorrow is the deadline for like having written at least 3 entries in process journal on your personal project and I didn't even fill in my personal project proposal on ManageBac. So basically, my project is to create a blog (which I already did) with different sections; sport (cycling, running, walking, yoga, resistance training), food (healthy eating, recipes, diet culture), mental health, about me page. I don't know what to write on ManageBac, what should I write in the "goal" section, "inquiry question", "criteria"? I guess my goal is to just post regularly on my blog, make it big, and MAINLY promote a healthy lifestyle and how anyone could have one. SO what should I write??? Please help!!!
  4. Alright, thanks, I didn't think about that! I just removed the attachment. And yeah you're right, I'll try to improve it myself.
  5. I'm in MYP5/Grade 10 and I have to write a critical essay in English and submit it on ManageBac on Sunday. The essay topic is to write about why I chose this high school while comparing/contrasting all high school options I had before choosing that one. So it should be a 5 paragraph essay with a thesis in the introduction obviously and I should have quite some cause/effect sentences. Also max 550 words. So the thing is we had to write a rough draft for today and we would get feedback from the teacher before improving the essay for Sunday's deadline and so I wrote 840 words and my teacher said it was good, interesting but too descriptive, too wordy and it's more of a story than a critical essay and it exceeds the max word number. I wanna get a 7 so bad so can you guys please improve my essay as much as you can? I mean you're technically not doing it for me so that's fine, I already did all the work you guys are just helping me out, so please the document is attached. Thanks!
