Hello, my name is Ale. First of all I'm really sorry to be a bother to you. I am applying for the Monbukagakusho (MEXT) Scholarship this year, It's a full-paid scholarship that allows you to do your undergrad in Japan. I'm applying for this because I'm from Paraguay, and I want to become an engineer. But the thing is the education level isn't that great in Paraguay, and I don't really have the money to study in USA or EU. I have some background in Math, Physics and Chemistry olympics. But those really aren't at the same level as this test, or so I think. If you'd lend me a hand on this I'd be really thankful. These are the syllabi; http://www.jasso.go.jp/en/eju/examinee/syllabus/mathematics.html http://www.jasso.go.jp/en/eju/examinee/syllabus/science_phy.html http://www.jasso.go.jp/en/eju/examinee/syllabus/science_chem.html I am currently studying mathematics from khan academy, since I want to re-learn everything because I'm kind of rusty right now. http://puu.sh/njyDi/e8fdb19c98.png [Broken] This is how far I've gotten up until today. I was told that I should not start on the sears zemansky (I'm going to study physics from there) until I have a basic knowledge of Calculus, which I do not, only basic school level. So I'm holding that off until I have that knowledge (or should I not? Can I go through the sears zemansky without that?) And I have NO idea where I should start or where I should study Chemistry from. I would really love to get this scholarship so I can get a better level of education, I would be very grateful if you'd lend me some help. Maybe some advice in how to approach this. Thanks, I look forward to your responses.
