How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Take it from a student who has got straight A*s in IGCSEs, did 4 AS, got all (A) and was supposed to do the A2 this June but still got rejected from every US university that gives good aid, not even Ivies. So don't do the same mistakes as me and focus on your SAT firstly (yes SAT 1 is a must, and even worth more than the A-levels your spent hundreds of hours studying for). then polish your school transcripts secondly. You also want to craft your essays, they are very stressful and you should probably start writing them from now, next, try to have many meaningful activities and community involvements, around 10 is perfect but don't just throw anything in, and try to show some commitment.
