Dear friends, from this wechat editionon, we will bring you more reports about our CAIS DP graduates’ interview.
First Day at School：31st August 2010
The following is King Song's Interview
actually I think I will definitely accept these offers, but I am still
waiting for other offers. Some of the universities will reply in March.
My ideal one is Boston University. The major that I choose in Purdue
University is Psychology. I didn’t choose a certain major in other
universities because I am not 100% sure of it, so I am going to make the
decision during my 1st or 2nd school year.
my English has improved a lot, then I think it should be the learning
methods. I remembered when I first came to school, I could not
understand what the teacher said, I could not catch up with the other
students. The worst thing was that I lost myself. Finally, I started to
accept the new learning method, but it was quite a challenge for me. For
example, how to review, how to read, how to search the resources, these
skills are very important. I was an introverted guy before, but since I
came to CAIS, I am not the most outgoing guy, but at least,I feel
confident; I am brave to express myself in class, get on well with
classmates. I think I have changed a lot.
of course! Firstly, MYP and DP programs are closely connected.
Secondly, MYP learning skills guided me to finish my EE(Extended Essay)
and IA(Internal Assessment). For example, if I now want to write an
article, I will read the text book first , search the resources and
choose the resources,which will help me to understand concept much

SAT score is OK! I think the new SAT is harder than the old one,
especially in Math. There is more knowledge to be tested and more
problems to be solved in the exam, but the time allotted is the same as
before. In my opinion, the reading part seemed easy, but writing part
seemed quite hard. I felt pressured because I had to finish a 600 word
article within 50 minutes. For MYP5 students, reciting words is very
important, don't be lazy!
Habitat.Habitat is a physical and mental challenge for everyone. I felt tired every day during that time, but the experience totally changed my view on charity work. Before Habitat I could never have imagined a 4-member family living on only 5,000 RMB per year. The experience of Habitat has changed my understanding. Since then, I have had the motivation to do charity works.

think it is well-rounded education. I didn't like exercise before, but
since MYP has many sports activities, I found some fitness activities
that made me happy. So I started to go cycling and do fitness, which
helped me to be confident!
EE(Extended Essay) topic is <Comparison of “Anna Karenina” and “The
Muslim’s Funeral” , doublestory line construction>. I found many
resources, and chose the comments about writing techniques. Actually
making a student to manage time is difficult. Within the IB there are
numerous deadlines that students must meet. This school has made a lot
of effort to assign the IA(Internal Assessment), TOK(Theory of
Knowledge) and EE(Extended Essay) time in a more reasonable way;
therefore we can finish each job on time.

I haven’t chosen my major yet; I want to find it out after 1 or 2 years’ study in university. I want to choose a career which allows me to have more freedom. I already know I don’t like business.
7 years ago, King made this very important decision to join in CAIS. On his way to getting used to the new education system, he was confused and experienced some failures. In the end, he conquered the difficulties and gained success. We hope King can get an offer from his ideal university.
In the end, King told us, “I believe we are the most united CAIS graduates forever! We are the best!”
