I have just passed my HSC exams. I want to go abroad for
my higher studies. There are some institutions which help
students get admission and prepare relevant documents. But
some of the institutions that advertise in newspapers are
frauds. I have heard of students being cheated by these
and I'm very worried about this. Where can I get help and
proper guidance in going abroad?
Yes, there are fictitious institutions and you should be
careful. However, depending on where you want to go, you
should take help from the various foreign embassies and
missions stationed in Bangladesh that offer such services.
The British Council and the US Information Services are
two such institutions that you can trust.
I'm a 1st year student of Rifles College in the science
group. The course is vast and we have to attend classes
from 9:45 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon. Even these
seven hours are not enough. We have to go to private tutors
for four hours a day. We spend eleven hours on lessons and
still have to study at home if we want to pass our exams.
I can't understand what we're taught in school. Is the standard
of education in our country so bad? How can we students
overcome the difficulties and do well?
You are absolutely right. There is too much pressure on
students to go to private tutors which is expensive and
time consuming. There is no doubt that schools and colleges
are not teaching the way they should. You will have to depend
on your intelligence and do the best you can. I am sorry
but I cannot offer much advice but the best you can do is
to complete your studies as fast as you can.
