IGCSE Vs IB

May 11, 2016 1 comment

Marketing wise, Numbers wise IGCSE looks good.
But IGCSE is ruled out by IB by Standford University.

From Standford University Web Site
Only British Advanced Level (A-Level) and Singapore Advanced Level (A-Level) exams are eligible to receive credit. A-Level exams from countries outside of the United Kingdom and Singapore are not accepted at Stanford.

It is responsibility of educated seniors to provide career counseling for students.
Career should be chosen with passion.
1. Identify passion / strengths / interests / long term goals
2. Match the above ones with available courses
3. Identify entrance criteria / Identify budget / Identify support / scholarships
4. Work towards goal and achieve it
