Talk does not cook rice That’s a Chinese saying, and it’s so true. You can talk all you want about your plans but they end right there if you’re unable to take steps to accomplish them. With this year coming to an end, it’s time you gather the courage to accept where you currently stand. Have you applied for the scholarship that could take some burden off your fi nances? Have you sat for the exam that could open the door to the career of your dreams? Have you attended the seminar that could guide you to your courses? Have you met with the course counselor who could advise on your future career? It’s all about planning and working hard to make those plans a reality. Nothing reveals your character more than your determination to succeed. To help get things on the right track is what the easyuni.com Ultimate University Guide all about. We keep our readers at the core of our focus. Like every issue, we have some very instructive articles to guide you in making informed decisions about your future career. Like the magazine you’re now holding, with a fresh and clean design, our website has been redesigned to make it more intuitive and user-friendly. For instance, now, you not only get to see universities based on your subjects and study level but also fi lter your search results based on rankings, tuition fees and many more preferences. For example, if you’re looking for a university with a low fee, you can just set your budget preference using our slider and fi nd the universities which fall under your budget range. Similarly, if a student is looking for top universities, just sort the search results by rankings. It’s that easy. Till we meet again next year, I leave you with a gem from the father of invention himself, Thomas Alva Edison: “Genius is 1 percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration”. It’s time for you to shine.
