Dear fellow forum members, I would like to remind you about the confidential nature of the documents the Centre made available for us, thus I ask of you to refrain from posting links to the documents provided, especially the SHORTLIST and the list of HOST COMPANIES on the public part of the forums.

Thank you

Re: Translation of list of grades

If you believe your level of English is professional/near-native and you are confident about it, you can translate almost all the documents by yourself. Last time I applied, I had to translate the list of grades, the system of grading, the medical certificate, as well as write the letter of enrollme...

Re: 2016 Applicants

I was also given the opportunity to send it with priority, but I chose to send it the simplest way and made it very clear to the clerk that it must not be registered.
It doesn't matter when it gets there, it matters when you send it. That's why the deadline refers to the latest postmark date.

There's your problem. They specifically wrote on the Application Form: « No “registered mail” can be accepted. » – that means no tracking. Your file was most likely rejected at destination.
