The London School of Economics and Political Science
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), together with Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial College and University London College. are the top G5 super elite universities of UK. LSE’s Social Science and Management major has been #2 of QS World University Ranking from 2013 through 2019, right after Harvard, extremely reputable in the social science, finance and business fields. By the end of 2016, there were 18 Nobel Prize winners, 34 government leaders, 31 Members of the House of Commons and 42 Members of the House of Lords.
Selina began her BIBS time from G2. She used to score 117 points in a 120-points TOFEL test. Today let’s hear the story of her success.
Congratulations Selina for this offer! Can you please share with us your application process?
A: Thank you! Actually, in the last 3 years HK was always my first choice. But the ongoing chaos has directly impacted its academic atmosphere and economic environment. For a student who wants to learn business, giving up HK seemed to be a smart thing to do. After discussing with my guidance counselling teacher, I decided to expand my application map. Hence the LSE offer, which was a nice surprise to me too. I really want to thank my guidance counselling teacher for all the guidance and support!
Why business? Can you tell us about your dream and academic plan?
A: My dream is to become a management consultant at a multinational company. To achieve this gold, I optioned 3 HL courses at IB DP – Business Management, Economics and Mathematics, which helped me to acquire knowledge in this field and strengthen my faith to become a good management consultant. I plan to complete my bachelor’s degree and read MBA in the US, and my target is Wharton Business School of Pennsylvania University!
Any advice for future BIBS graduates?
A: I found IB program very useful when applying for universities. Unlike any other program, it combines intellectual learning with extracurricular activities that really help students to succeed in not only getting offers from universities but also to prepare them with independent inquiry and comprehensive studying abilities. I hope future BIBS graduates make good use of the fact that BIBS is a PYP, MYP and DP fully accredited IB school, and develop their critical thinking and inquiry-based studying habit and skills.
Also I would like to remind to stop procrastinating. It will just make your life more difficult as an G12 IB student. For me I found English Language and Literature difficult. As a person who doesn’t particularly enjoy reading, it was very hard for me to analyze different books and finish oral commentaries. So don’t procrastinate. All hard works are worth it.
Anything you want to say to your teachers and classmates?
A: Having spent nearly 10 years of my life in BIBS, I want to thank every one in the community who has showed me Love, Care and Support. Saying goodbye is always sad, but I’m fully empowered with courage and strength to start my university life. Wherever I go, I will pass on the energy of Love, Care and Support.
