2014 Scholarship student
The following is Nancy Lin's Interview
are one of the earliest students who received the offers, and these two
universities are century-old famous universities in the world which are
London University College(QS Ranking 7) and King’s College London(QS Ranking 21), How did you feel when you received the offer?
was very happy, especially after I received one of the offers and the
other one came the next day. I didn’t expect to receive them in only one
Which major did you choose, what is your future plan?
majors I chose are a little bit different, but all relate to Math and
Economics. When I chose the DP subjects, I thought I may like Business
and management, but since 2 years in DP, I found I was good at Math, so
finally I chose Economics. After communicating with parents and friends,
I realize that my character is suitable to do the work with high
pressure or hard tasks. I love to communicate and cooperate with other
people, I like this kind of challenging job.

always asked students to learn time management skills and improve the
ability of summary and analysis. Do you have some good ideas to share
realized the necessity of managing time wisely since I found my life
was busier and busier. I tried many ways, such as making a time plan,
when I finished a job, I ticked the job off on the plan. But, it was a
little bit rigid. So I found a big white board at home. The left
side is a Monthly plan and a weekly plan, but the right side is only a
daily plan. When I had to update my daily plan, I would change it by
erasing, which is more flexible. I also wrote some encouraging words to
inspire myself. This is really helpful, and I really encourage you to
have a try.

are a 2014 Scholarship student. You have CAIS trust and expectation,
since you got the scholarship, did your attitude change? How did you
think of this honor?
me, the scholarship means pressure and motivation. I know the
importance of this scholarship, which means CAIS trusts me! If a student
cannot meet the expectation of the scholarship, he/she will not enjoy
any benefit from it any more. I don't want this happen, so my target of
each subject is 7(total score is 7). I ever imagined, if I were not the
scholarship student, I may not get this level. My opinion is, I am the
scholarship student, I have the obligation to help my classmates, School
paid the tuition for me, so I have to do something to show my
have many hobbies, I think they are parts of my life. I like cosplay,
MUN(Model United Nations), singing, dancing and even playing dancing
machine. Sometimes, learning is so boring, and we can find something
that can help us to relax, but we should balance it, since DP2 is so
busy, learning knowledge is more important during this time.
During these 3 years in CAIS, which things or activities changed you a lot?
was transferred from a traditional School, some of the students there
believed that score was the most important thing. If a student gets a
great score, everybody may think he/she is a perfect student.
Unfortunately, I was one of them. It influenced me when I came to CAIS, I
thought I was different and I was proud of myself. This attitude made
me refuse participation with every classmate. Finally I found a big gap

whole MYP5, I seldom talked with my classmates, which was so childish I
think. Since DP1, I became aware of some unique traits of my
classmates. In Habitat, I saw the “Princes and Princesses” were working
hard and sweatily. They didn’t complain even one word. Although I worked
with them under the blazing sun all day, I didn't have their strong
faith. Finally, my body could not burden, I laid on the bed all day long
in the hotel. They visited me, comforted me with warm words, and
suddenly, I realized how foolish I was!! A question came up to me, how
stupid you are when you judge a person to be “useless” by the low
examination score! These little things changed my opinions.

had 3 years’ IB learning experiences, you made a Personal Project,
finished 4000 words Extended Essay, attended HMUN and experienced CAS
courses. I should say these 3 years were wonderful, but also hard for
you. To be a learner, what kind of abilities did IB bring to you?
classes before were always straight A classes. I knew some of the boys
in that class would not help girls to move tables or chairs, they were
selfish. But in CAIS, IB is trying to make us to be well-rounded people.
We try to be enthusiastic, responsible and caring. How can you imagine a
big guy crying when he saw an injured animal? They always smile when
they face repetitive challenges. At that time, a voice came up from my
mind, I want to be a person like them! Therefore,IB totally changed my
thoughts and values. I am so lucky I can be a CAIS memberand receive IB
education here. Sometimes, it is a good thing to have a high score, but
never lose your value and human essence only for a high score.
