Good day i am a cameroonian student and i wish to share with you all on HSB my visa interview here at the younde consulate .I want first to say that this blog helped me so much in preparing for my interview this is how it went

F1 Visa Stamping

me: good morning sir
VO: good morning, and tells me wait for a second, turns around i after some few minutes turns back to me

VO: why did tou choose laroche college
me: sir i was looking for an institution that daoes not require TOEFL as a prerequest for admission and again it is a little college with abou 1800 students and with a faculty ratio of 12:1 this will help the lecturer to know the student and undestand his problem and help him to overcome it

VO: why run away from TOEFL
me: actually sir i was not runing from it but if i had done toefl i will not hae the admission deadline for spring and it will have caused me to do up till one year in the wchich is not good for a student

VO: who will sponsor you
me: my father

VO: waht does he do
me: he is a retired journalist but now his source of income is his retirement benefit and money he gots from his house rents and also on the rairing of pigs and chickens and also i have a ten thousand dollars schilarship

VO: will your father be able of paying the remaining 20000 dollars
me: yes sir
VO: show me your GCE A level results gave him the A and O level

VO: ok we will issu you the VISA got and come back tomorow and collect it

    Please some one should explain to the process at the embassy before interview.
    Will the F1 student go 3 days before the interview to take passport photo and a fingerprint scan?
    Or only goon the scheduled date?

    i have visa interview in yaounde in 2 weeks time. I have only O level certificate, not A level…. will i have any problems with this?

      It depends…If you have taken gce A levels, then you have to show them the certificate.
      In case if you have lost it, then you can call your british council and request them to provide you another certificate against the lost one.
