Secondly, I doubt Ivies will just admit anyone with good grades. It's said that we'll have to win some international competitions or great events? (Is this true? o.o) But with less than half a year, that seems impossible.
This is stressful... D:
As stated above, just be yourself! =) And although Ivies do look for more than good grades, I can tell you its not just about winning international events or being a national champion. It is about you and your personality and what you can bring to their institution. In short, whether you "fit" that university and vice versa. But on a whole, the admission process is complex.
Oh and I'm sure you don't need to win an international event to be considered by Ivies. I didn't even win any national event before and I got admitted
so yeah, just be yourself!
