1. What is your real name?

Just call me Vale :)

2. Where are you from?

Italy, homeland of pizza, mafia and mandolino. Just kidding, I come from Milan, which is in Northern Italy and has very little to do with Southern when it comes to lifestyle and costumes! :)

3. How did you find out about IB Survival?
I don't remember...? Either it was The Student Room or I found it on Google.


4. What made you register on IB Survival?
I pretty much always register on websites that look helpful at first. This is why my e-mail inbox is always flooded with stupid, pointless newsletters that I never read. Sigh.


5. When did you (approximately) register here?
According to my profile, I registered on July 15th 2013.


6. What is your favourite IB subject?
Don't know yet. I suppose it'll be a battle between English and French.


7. When are you graduating?
May 2015.


8. What are your plans for university?
First of all, I want to get into a good uni in the UK which should also offer great tuition fees loans and manteinance loans. I want to study Computer Science, possibly combined with Software Engineering.


9. What are your free-time hobbies?
Reading, playing badminton, rollerskating, bicycling, drawing, playing Neopets (mkay, don't judge me. *sigh*), daydreaming, watching movies, listening to music, playing the piano, singing, possibly acting.


10. If you could change one thing on IB Survival, what would it be?
Nothing really, I love the international feel on here. One thing maybe would be making it easier to find people doing the IB in your country, e.g. I'd love to get to know people doing the IB in Poland :)
