  2. Plaćanje priprema u Centru, simulacija, nadgledanja testova i drugih usluga od pre nekoliko nedelja je moguće i online. Na stranici https://shop.iacbg.rs nalazi se deo usluga koje možete platiti online na siguran način svojom debitnom ili kreditnom karticom. Na ovaj način smo vam olakšali procedure i smanjili troškove u procesu pripreme za dalje obrazovanje u Americi i na drugim lokacijama širom sveta. Sajt je na engleskom jeziku zbog nedostatka vremena da kompletan sadržaj i kodiranje stranica prilagodimo srpskom jeziku, a istovremeno i zbog činjenice da deo naših klijenata ne govori srpski jezik. Koliko to bude moguće u budućnosti, napravićemo plan da prilagodimo sajt i za više domaćih korisnika. Napominjemo da sajt neće moći da se koristi za plaćanje zvaničnih ispita, troškova u vezi sa upisom univerziteta, kao i za zakazivanje razgovora za vize u Ambasadi SAD. Za sve te namene proverite zvanične Internet sajtove i iskoristite uputstva koja se tamo nalaze. Ako ste već stigli do ovog dela vesti, evo i male probe i poklona za početak. Simulacije za TOEFL, GRE i GMAT možete platiti online sa 15 odsto popusta do 15. decembra 2017. godine korišćenjem koda dcmbrsim15. Simulacije za TOEFL se moraju zakazati do kraja decembra u Centru, a kupljeni kodovi za GRE i GMAT važe dve godine. Popust važi samo za kupovinu ovih simulacija online, zaključno sa 15. decembrom 2017. godine. U narednom periodu će biti i drugih popusta, ali će o tome tek biti reči. Za sva pitanja i sugestije otvorena je naša adresa office@iacbg.org, a možete nas i zvati na neki od brojeva telefona tokom radnog vremena.
  3. A not infrequently discussed topic in my own GRE classes is that of what are known as structural signposts, referred to in the Princeton Review's Cracking the GRE and other places as "triggers." These discussions are for the most part related to establishing values for the blanks in Text Completion tasks, but understanding and keeping your eyes peeled for them in Reading tasks can also be quite important. They are essentially the "mechanical" components of a sentence, indicating relations between specific items of content, i.e. various subjects and objects. They come in two basic flavors, best or at least most simply represented by words such as "so" for the "straight arrow" relationship between content items, and "but" for the "curved arrow." What do I mean? By "straight arrow," I mean that this sort of trigger does not change the values between specific content items. For example, "Good thing" ---> "so" ---> "other good thing." Positive to positive. Vice versa for "but." Those sorts are "hard" triggers, meaning that they are purely mechanical. If you look up the word "so" in the dictionary, you'll certainly find a definition there- a great many definitions, in fact. But you could almost say that the word has more of a function than a definition. Contrast that to the word "antediluvian." Through a very particular set of etymological derivations, you end up with a very specific definition: "before The Flood" aka "old-fashioned." This is a specific content item, as contrasted to a trigger. So what is a "soft trigger?" A soft trigger is a word of phrase that gets the same result as a hard trigger, but is not so mechanical. You might think for example of phrases such as "based on" (straight arrow) or "far from" (curved arrow). "Far from being an intelligent, rational human being, the giant orange snowflake had fallen soufflé for a brain." It tends to be the case that these are harder to spot, especially for non-native speakers (the vast majority of my students are Serbian), and even more so when those students are dealing with idiomatic meaning in a soft trigger phrase (that last bit is a topic for another day). Get the picture? Good, because now it gets interesting. Blindness, deception, and error are what you came for, and I'm here to oblige! A further very sneaky set of soft triggers comes in a much subtler form: words and phrases that indicate things hidden, unknown, or mistaken. These triggers are exclusively in the "curved arrow" category, for reasons that will soon become evident. Think about this: what does it mean when someone uses the words "actually" or "seems" or "assumption?" Consider the following Text Completion example from an official GRE exercise- "The name of the Sloane Matthew Library has long been ________; even longtime city residents assume it is a run-of-the-mill library, never suspecting what art treasures it contains." We won't bother with the answer choices for now, but bonus points for anyone who correctly inserts a word of their own. The point here is to illustrate the fact there is a hidden contrast at work. Another way to phrase this might be "Despite (hard trigger) being called a library, SML contains great works of art." A frequent offender in this group is the transitive verb "belie." This is a word that we've seen show up both as a context clue AND as an answer choice. Well, not at the same time of course. That would just be confusing. It's a word that has even occasionally flummoxed my native English speaking preppers. It can mean "to reveal something as false" or "to cover something up" or simply "to contrast or contradict." "His soft words were belied by his brutal actions." So there you have it! Deceit and treachery can send you careening in the direction of a bad analysis, leading to misidentified blanks, dismal test scores, grey skies, and closed doors. Come join us in February for our next GRE course, or sign up for some of our private classes, if you'd like to develop the tools to avoid such pitfalls.

  9. Every year, thousands of individuals apply to medical schools across the U.S. While the majority are American citizens or permanent residents, international students also apply. The Association of American Medical Colleges reports that in 2014 almost 2,000 international applicants sought admission to U.S. medical schools and 409 secured acceptances. All things considered, these numbers are encouraging and should give international applicants hope that they can attend medical school in the U.S. However, the admissions process is difficult and requires careful planning. Here are four steps to follow to help you succeed in gaining admission to a U.S. medical school. 1. Know where to apply: Not all U.S. medical schools accept international students. According to 2014 AAMC data, 62 medical schools stated they would accept international students' applications. Before you apply, make sure you have reviewed the admissions requirements for each school. Identify the institutions that accept international applicants and find out their requirements. 2. Complete academic requirements: Almost all U.S. medical schools recommend that applicants have a bachelor's degree, and many require it. As an international applicant, you will be at a significant competitive disadvantage if you do not have a bachelor's degree. Undergraduate coursework in the U.S. will give you a stronger advantage. Keep in mind that the American Medical College Application Service will not accept foreign education transcripts, verify them or calculate a grade point average. Because of this, almost all U.S. medical schools require international applicants to complete coursework in America before applying. Some require a year of U.S.-based coursework, while others ask that all medical school prerequisites be completed in the U.S. Virtually all schools treat coursework from Canada the same as the U.S. Stanford University states on its website that courses taken at an accredited institution in the United Kingdom are also acceptable. Before applying to U.S. medical schools, try to complete one to two years of university-level education in the U.S. with a focus on prerequisites and upper-division biology courses. Make sure you take these courses at a four-year university and not a community college. A postbaccalaureate program or a graduate science program is also a good option and acceptable at many schools. 3. Gain clinical and service-based experience: American medical schools seek applicants who have developed an understanding of the medical profession by working in the clinical setting alongside physicians. They also look for applicants who have demonstrated a passion for service, especially to the underserved. It is a good idea to get started on these experiences before moving to the U.S., but it is absolutely crucial to continue these activities in America before applying to medical school. You want to show medical schools that you are familiar with the American health care system and the work culture in this country. You can achieve this by participating in clinical and community-service based activities. These experiences in America can also serve as a valuable way to improve your language skills, particularly in developing strong patient communication abilities, which are crucial to your success as a medical student. 4. Hone English proficiency for the MCAT: While your English proficiency will affect your medical school studies, it will also play a key role in how you perform on the MCAT, which requires strong critical reading skills. For the MCAT Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills and the Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior sections, you are expected to read, understand and analyze English text on a broad range of topics. Work hard to improve your language skills by taking courses in English writing and literature, reading books in English and expanding your communication skills. Accomplishing these four tasks can seem daunting, but if you are set on training at a U.S. medical school, they are achievable.

  10. Selection of Participants The Program is designed for human rights activists working with NGOs on issues including sexual and gender-based violence, minority rights, LGBT rights, labor rights, migration, health, social exclusion, environmental justice, disability rights, and corporate social accountability. Participants are selected on the basis of their previous work experience in human rights, commitment to the human rights field, and demonstrated ability to pursue graduate-level studies. Full-time students or government officials will not be considered. Applicants holding full or part-time jobs pursuing their advocacy efforts are preferred. Advocates must work at the grassroots level. Applicants from high-income countries will not be considered except for those representing marginalized communities. See the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information about this requirement. Fluency in English is required. Preference is given to those who have not previously had opportunities to travel and study internationally. Advocates must provide proof of institutional endorsement in English from their organizations for their participation in the Program and must commit to returning to that organization upon completion of the Program. Only one application per organization should be submitted. More than one application means all applications from that organization will be disqualified. It is up to the applicant to make sure no one else from the organization has applied. Funding After ISHR conducts its stringent selection process, it makes every effort to secure funding for shortlisted Advocates to attend the program. In certain cases where ISHR cannot secure funding, shortlisted Advocates may be asked to secure the funds needed for them to be admitted to the program. 2015 Advocates Swe Zin Oo (Burma) and Elina K.

  20. Nova priprema za SAT, ispit potreban za upis koledža i univerziteta u Americi i na drugim lokacijama u svetu, počinje u utorak, 21. novembra 2017. godine i traje osam nedelja. Uz praznike koji su pred nama, priprema se završava 20. januara 2018. Tokom svake sedmice predavanja se održavaju utorkom i četvrtkom po dva sata, a u kalendar će zbog obima rada biti dodato i nekoliko subotnjih termina. S obzirom na to da je većina polaznika priprema tokom radne sedmice u školi, predavanja se održavaju pre podne od 10:00 i popodne od 16:00 sati. Predavanja su potpuno ista i sami kandidati odlučuju na koji termin časova mogu da dođu. Nakon uplate prve rate dobija se jedna od dostupnih knjiga za pripremu koja služi kao referentno sredstvo i udžbenik za deo vežbanja. Kandidati će tako dobiti izdanje Princeton Review "Cracking the SAT", a tokom priprema će dobijati i materijal koji je sastavljen od originalnog sadržaja sastavljenog u Centru i od najboljih delova dostupne literature za pripremu testa. Ukoliko se ukaže potreba da se dodatno vežba, Centar može da obezbedi dodatne praktične zadatke i instrukcije bez dodatne naplate. Na kraju priprema dostupan je besplatni kompletni probni test SAT koji će naši predavači oceniti i objasniti kandidatima koje se greške moraju ispraviti kako bi se poboljšao rezultat. Kada se pripreme završe, kandidati i dalje mogu da vežbaju kod nas bez ikakvog plaćanja i da se konsultuju sa predavačima oko delova testa koji im mogu biti problematični. Priprema košta 48,000 dinara i plaća se u dve rate. Prvi deo u iznosu od 30,000 dinara se plaća na početku, a drugi deo kada istekne prvi mesec priprema. Sam test ne ulazi u cenu priprema i mora se samostalno prijaviti na sajtu www.collegeboard.org i platiti kreditnom ili debitnom karticom kojom se može plaćati na Internetu. Broj mesta za testove je ograničen i savetujemo svim kandidatima da se za test prijave što je pre moguće. Sledeći test van Sjedinjenih Država organizuje se u martu. Na časovima se obrađuju sve sekcije ispita - jezički i matematički deo i pisanje eseja. Osim rada na samim časovima, dostupna vam je biblioteka resursa Centra u kojoj možete dodatno da vežbate bez dodatne nadoknade, a predavači uvek ostavljaju dosta vežbanja koja se mogu poneti i uraditi kod kuće. Pre početka priprema potrebno je uraditi besplatni probni test znanja engleskog jezika. Zakazivanje termina probnog testa može se obaviti pozivom brojeva telefona kancelarije - 011/334 9639 i 011/334 9638. Prijava za pripremu obavlja se na našem sajtu popunjavanjem odgovarajućeg formulara na stranici https://goo.gl/forms/8ndGsYSh84EIGKcu1 . Ako imate problema sa formularom, molimo vas da nas nazovete tokom radnog vremena ili pošaljete e-mail na office@iacbg.org .

  22. Asking for spread sheet

    Dear Dragan, The template has been sent to you in a private message at this Board. We are swamped at this time of the year, and sometimes responses come slower than expected. We did not share this document in public as it would require more explanation for people who would download it. At this moment, we don't have video, audio or written explanation for future grad students and posting the document would create more work for people monitoring the Board. If you come to any hurdles with the research, write to us at office@iacbg.org or use any other address you have been using before. Regards :-)
