What steps did you take to secure your admission in the Indonesian University?

First, I took an online entrance exam. The exam consisted of several questions of Math, English and Logical Reasoning. I cleared the exam successfully and was able to bag a 70% scholarship as well. My course is entirely online and the classes will begin very soon. I am quite excited and am gearing up for it. 

How has your experience of the IB (International Baccalaureate) curriculum been?

It was initially very challenging for me. The IB curriculum was a big shift from the Indonesian curriculum. It was hard for me to adapt. But gradually, I adjusted to the IB curriculum and it helped me a lot with my writing skills.

How did Apeejay School International, South Delhi help you to secure your admission?

The teachers at the school helped me a lot. Whenever I needed some help, they gave me extra-classes and solved all my doubts.

What are your future targets?

I would love to be an illustrator one day. I am very interested in that field. 

What advice would you give to students who are aiming to get admission in foreign universities like you?

I would say belief in yourself. That is the main thing. It is really important to have faith in your own capabilities and the confidence to achieve your set target.
