hi daniel and orthopod. orthopod, things do have change as compared to the past. maybe you can have a read on this too. just to keep yourself abreast.
daniel, i do agree with orthopod regarding your english. no offence.
from what i comprehend, she should be in her semester 5, exams due next week rite? If my guess is correct, then i would be her senior by a batch. =) I have been studying in imu and been working there too. To clarify a point, what the matching process guarantees is a place for students to go to their university which imu partners with. hence with this said, matching does not guarantee you the top university that you want to go.
and with current trend or the agreement of what i understand, the partner universities will take imu students in ratio of results. for example, if university A offers 4 places, it might be filled up by 1 top scorer of the batch, 2 average student and 1 slightly below average student. hence it is no surprise for someone who is weaker to get to go to their university of their choice though another person who might be better in results vies for the same place. other than that, we should look into other aspects, has her result been consistent all this while? some university may look into overall academic performances rather than just one EOS. how about non academic qualities? has she has something that puts her at the better edge? there was a co-cu form which she needed to fill in.
as of now, she can only appeal (chances are slim definitely) and wait.
and to orthopod, i do agree with you every cent saved is money saved, but i believe the winds have indeed changed, the trend these days is that students are looking into UK and aussie uni equally. reasons being: Aussie exchange is getting stronger, hence with school fees and living costs counted, its not much different being in UK or Aussie. Second, as according to a news article in Aussie, the MOH is reducing the number of international interns. NZ unis are also reducing the places they offer to imu students as stipulated by their government to increase the number of local students. And infact more students are actually looking into NZ as their preferred uni. As seen in my batch.
