IBT and GRE… hohohoh ganbatte nee ^_^
Facing challenge in front of us is surely something. For me, preparing stuff for TOEFL and IBT is a thing that has to be seriously prepared. I have taken my IELTS test. Well my score is actually adequate to be used for applying some graduate schools and scholarships abroad. But, just relying on the English Proficiency Test like IELTS is not enough.. There are so many things that has also to be prepared if you determined yourself to challenge your mind and getting a scholarship, such as essay, research proposal, study objective, letter of recommendation etc…Most importantly is your determination on why you are willing to take the challenge? And how great your effort to achieve the target! Okay, random thinking again… heuheu
Well back to my mind about TOEFL and GRE. Some people said that if you have taken IELTS, you will not find difficulties to gain high score for IBT. There are some similarities between IELTS and TOEFL that can help us to answer the question given. The only obvious difference is about the writing section which is significantly different from IELTS. So, one of my friends suggested me to not focus on IBT but GRE. Well yeah, in addition, my time to learn GRE is not really adequate, so, I prefer to use this advice.
GRE is more challenging! Definitely!! It is similar to take English-version-SPMB (national selection for university entrance examination). You have to answer quantitative, verbal, and analytical writing test. Actually because I will take engineering major, I just focus on quantitative and writing test. But, of course it will be better if you also pass the verbal test.. but yeaaah… to remember all of those strange, unusual, high-level vocabulary is a hard effort to be put… I have already made some effort,, heheheh… one of them is borrowing the related books to my friend, and then begin to explore them.. try to understand the rule, and answer the question.
Oi Iin!!! You remember that you have graduated from ITB!! Most of the question from your homework was using English. You use English handbooks, and the exercises also used English. In addition, Chem Eng Department in ITB has Fundamental Engineering Examination that actually a globally recognized examination. You must past!!! No matter what! Although, at first, US is not your study destination, but just trust Allah to bring you wherever He wants to place you to make you become a better person!! Right!!!
