Outstanding academic results

Students should strive for exellent academic results. By accumulating as many A’s, A+’s  as possible, the students will easily get attention from an Admissions Council. Outstanding achievements in studying depends on their efforts and more importantly, the guidance of skillful teachers, who are also dedicated and posses effective teaching methods.

Academic English ability

Entering the Assessment of English, students will need a good foundation in English. At different ages, students will have different kind of tests to evaluate their English proficiency. Admissions Councils will assess their qualifications, comparing them to the certain age group to select the 30 best students out of 300. Students need not worry about competing with the older ones because the Admissions Council will base their decision on the students' level within a comparable age range, along with other performance related results that they will consider. However, the ability to speak English fluently, pronounce their words correctly and being confident are great points to help them conquer the later interview.

To achieve this, the student would need to be familiar with English at the early age. The best learning environment requires a constant communication in English, helping them to practice their skills in listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar.

Once students gain a scholarship, VAS is the ideal environment for them to improve their academic English abilities so as to get scholarships in other worldwide famous colleges and universities.

Proactively participate in volunteer & extracurricular activities

The schools which grant scholarships often favor the students that actively participate in activities such as physical training, developing skills in music, painting, badminton, table tennis, etc...and actively join volunteer activities, community programs or charitable fund-raising activities to develop themselves.

Therefore, along with studying, participating in these activities at an early age is also a great advantage. If the students take a leadership role, initiating and achieving awards in these activities, they are more likely to receive the goodwill of the Admissions Council.

Training soft skills

Those soft skills such as communication skills, presentation skills, respondent skills, analyzing skills, problem solving skills, etc...are especially important when it comes to the interview with the Admissions Council. Even when entering a modern learning environment in another country, analyzing and studying skills are the keys to helps the students quickly fit in.

Besides, students should practice at home by speaking in front of a mirror or talking to parents and other family members. Do not just focus on academic knowledge, the understanding of the socio-economic situation of both Vietnam and the world will be helpful for students to strengthen their confidence with the Admissions Council.
