How did Orchlon school help you get into Universities/Colleges
I’ve realized that for someone to be their very best, they should be challenged in various subjects. Orchlon International School provides this environment for you; to be challenged and use the resources available for you to conquer those challenges.
Orchlon’s teachers have had great experience and has vast knowledge in their respective fields. Because of their knowledge and experience, they could explain and help me understand certain concepts, theories, or situations, with ease. Additionally, their vast knowledge helps you explore different fields and situations. You get the sense you aren’t constrained with a certain way of thinking. They help you be more curious of the world.
The students at Orchlon want to achieve the goals they set out for themselves. When I saw these students constantly studying day and night, I became more motivated to be at their level. These small rivalries between students, helped me become a hardworking and dedicated student.
What would you say to Orchlon students?
I would say, understand the value of international examinations. These examinations can either help you get into universities or colleges, or they can help you take off mandatory classes. Sometimes these mandatory classes feel like a waste of time and money.
My recommendation is to take the classes you need in the field you are pursuing. The international exams will help you collect credits for classes. You may use the grades of the exams to advance onto higher level classes which will help you save money and help you explore different fields.
Remember, the value of university is that you are there to learn skills and concepts which many may not be able to do. You shouldn’t carelessly spend your money to be basic.
What stage in your life are you at?
I am at the stage of life where I am interested in everything, but I am too tired and exhausted to continue. Hopefully I become energized.
3 things you’ve learned at college?
- There are times where you need to take time off for yourself. Classes will flood you with homework and assignments. IT IS EXHAUSTING. It will become stressful and unhealthy if you don’t take off time for yourself.
- Learn to manage your time early on. Everything can crumble down if you don’t.
- Just be dedicated into what you’re doing and in the end, everything can workout.
