    Want to study in Universities like MIT or CalTech: Procedures and what to do

    As the title sums it up, for someone who aspires to go to these top-notch unis, how they do it and the procedures behind it. I got some extracurricular activities, such as drawing (won competitions throughout school life) and playing piano and also am good in programming
    Im currently in Year 10 and want to get into these prestigious unis, tips would be great! I love doing Maths and Physics and want to advance in them,
    And am working hard to get DUX and possible a 99.9+ ATAR too ;P

    I can barely see up and down and back again
    Despite what you believe I keep away from trouble
    If who I am today's a sign of where I'm going
    I'm ready to embrace

    Sorry I mean SATs


    They are a set of tests that American(and international) students take to enter American universities.

    Have a look at

    Maybe enter some competitions that relate to what you want to study at MIT or CalTech.
