In the meantime, I have some questions regarding the DS2010 form:
1) · Under “How was the English proficiency of the visitor determined? (check all that apply)”, should I complete the tickboxes or should this be done by a third party who tested my English proficiency?
2) · Under “Check which J Category you are requesting for Exchange Visitor (one box only):” Please advise me as to which option I should tick. If I tick "Short Term Scholar" will there be a problem if my thesis takes longer than the six months allowed? Would I be able to extend my visa?
3) Does Berkeley University specify the time in which I must complete my MS thesis there or is the timescale flexible? This will help me to clarify the situation with my current university.
I would be grateful for an urgent response so that I can continue with my application.
