Top things that colleges abroad expect during the admission process

Which is your dream college? If you think a good GPA alone can land you there, think again! Maximize your chances of getting accepted and explore your options well to see if your dream college really is the right place for you. 

First, take time to know your school and make sure you meet the course requirements. Even before you finish off with your high school studies, perhaps you could invest your time in subjects connected to the college major you plan to take up. 
In your application, make a great impression highlighting any hardships that you’ve overcome, with necessary details. Make sure you take your prep seriously and take as many practice tests and join study groups to help you get the best scores. Spending your summer doing an internship or any unpaid work experience could score you extra points in your favour as well.
