Unhappy bad score

Default continue your quest!

continue my friend...

do well in CK...

pass the rest on 1st attempt...

i know it's difficult to get IV with low step 1 score but not impossible...

i'm struggling right now to secure IV but i'm not losing hope....

hopefully my long list of rejections will end by tom or nxt wk...

if you have recent YOG, publications, connections, and USCE then that would boost your application. good luck...focus on your upcoming exams!

don't give up. sometimes seeing those really high scores on this forum can be depressing, but hang in there. study hard for ck and then try and get good USCE and LOR's.. that will deff help your application.
