Take on Education + Oman Community Blog

Tuesday, July 24, 2007
I know, I know. It's been a while, not my fault so save it. No time or point of a life update now, but I'll just quickly say that I'm done with school. Finally.
I've recently received the honor of being invited to Oman Community Blog, It has opened about two weeks ago and due to circumstances out of my influence I could not post in earlier opportunity. I just finished my first post there, and it's about my take on the educational system here in Oman, and the changes it desperately needs to undertake to set it on the straight track.
That post is available here, and the blog's link is here. Just wanted to tell you about those two things. If you'd like it, you can also respond with your observations here and not strictly there.

gWhat are your plans, major? actually what would be the perfect outcome? Is technical College where you want to go or are you saying that as a sign of defeat? Sorry for the multiple questions, Im just interested in knowing how the system works in your situation.
My two A's and one B in the scientific subjects became one B, one C and one D.. :-(
BTW! I totally forgot to tell you yesterday that the certificates arrived school and some of the mates went yesterday to take their certificates, and even passed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to get their certificates stamped! Totally forgot to tell you.. Did you know? I couldn't go yesterday though. I will go on Saturday and will pass by the Ministry of Education to see if they will let me check my papers or not.
Per Your Request My initial plan was to either get accepted to any major in Sultan Qaboos University and then transfer to what I would be feel to be more suitable or study Creative Multimedia in Malaysia.
With my scores, I'm pretty sure that SQU is a no-go, so I'm pretty much focusing on Malaysia right now. I'm even considering doing a double-major in their London campus, but it's too early to specualte on such.
If that didn't work out, then .. I don't know for now.
Amjad I hate you. I postponed everything to Saturday because I thought the certificates aren't gonna be there.
I know you studied like hell. I didn't do shit and we both got Ds. I love it how charming this all is.
