It’s called ChatGPT not CheatGPT I still visualize the little bits of papers that some of the students hide under their sleeves to use to solve exam questions. These students had devised some very “admirable” ways to cheat to the extent that even the teachers become stunned. A student would carbon copy his answers and slip it to the ones who wait for him and her and then they start answering, or they write some answers on the chair in front of them, sometimes on their shoes, their socks, their hands, the inside of the hat and so on. I once saw a cheater who wrote some information on the sleeve ..read more

A list of University Slogans

Slogans are so important in any field, whether its products, services, business, sports, education, food, and many others. Some brands are known by their slogans, e.g., “Just do it” is of course Nike’s; “I am worth it” is Loreal, “creating a knowledge society” is ours. So, let’s go back to the university slogans, each university has a committee that must come up with a sentence that would be used on all its advertising campaigns that will help to attract students to it.  I was part of such advertising campaign when I worked at a university in New Zealand, and we came up with the slogan “t ..read more

How a minor in university can enhance your career prospects

I would just like to talk about university studies and how with a small difference one can learn a subject that can save his or her life in the future. Let’s first speak about the concept of university studies. Say you want to study medicine (the most obvious choice for many students, alongside dentistry, business, law, or languages). There are over 3000 university programmes to feast your eyes on, and that one must think what he or she would want to do with their lives very early in their school studies and never embark on a study major if he or she are not 100% sure that it’s what they want ..read more

Architecture is one of the most enduring art forms that make our environment beautiful, daring or simply functional. Our city skylines -from concrete monstrosities to sleek glass lines- are created because of architects’ visions. Architecture has evolved as a profession over centuries. The ancient city of Mohenjo-Daro – the present-day India and Pakistan or the Great Pyramids of Egypt are magnificent examples of early architecture. Can we say the Pharos were the first known architects? Well, I can say for sure that Michel Angelo and Leonardo DaVinci are the first for sure, their work ..read more

O week stands for “Orientation week”, it can also be called fresher week, which is held every year by almost all the universities around the world.  Normally it’s held to showcase the university or the college to the fresh students, and most of the time the second existing students help during the congregations.

We are living in an unprecedented era with a virus that is having new strains every second and whatever vaccine is created would not totally eliminate the possibility of us contracting the virus. Covid19 is a part of the SARS/MERS family which is in existence for a long time, and SARS has a higher fatality than Covid, but it seems that the new strains are fatal (see this article https://www.healthline.com/health/coronavirus-vs-sars#molecular-factors). What we are speaking about in this article is this field of study which is normally represented in the bachelor of science programme and al ..read more

Alternative or Conventional Medicine?

Over my working years on student advice and counselling, I have not encountered a student who wanted to study herbal medicine or Chinese medicine or the hundreds of alternative medicines out there. I can say with my hands on my heart that 100% of my students all wanted to study conventional medicine as we know it.  They like to go for the “normal medicine branches” like dentistry, physiotherapy, pharmacy, physiotherapy etc. of course there are the sub-speciality for each field and sub-sub-speciality. A person who enters this cave can stay there learning all his or her life. Indeed, these ..read more

I have been working with students and also adults for a long time, and have advised many on what major suits them and had been instrumental in graduating a very successful group of students who had not only passed with flying colours but also found great careers that matched their ability. Sometimes though, the students would not be able to choose especially in the Gulf region as the governments provide specific scholarships and the students do not have a choice but to accept whatever is on offer.  However, some students do excel and some change to another major halfway through the cours ..read more

What is a Psychometric Test?
Education Zone
by jihadalrazqi
2y ago
Psychometric tests are multiple-choice questionnaires designed by expert psychologists to analyze different aspects of your mind. Students at times make incorrect choices when it comes to higher education and career development. Such students are either forced to drop out and switch to another degree, or they stay on a career path that leaves them unhappy and frustrated. In either case, they not only waste precious time and money but also jeopardise their futures. Psychometric tests offer the opportunity to look inside your mind and understand your true motivations and capabilities. Psychometr ..read more

We always wonder about study majors and at times we are at a loss. As there are hybrids of majors around the 10000 or so universities around the world. If I say that there are more than 3000-5000 majors available, I wouldn’t be exaggerating, as there are new ones sprouting up periodically. Scholars and professors continue to study the needs of students, companies and the public to find what is required, also they continue to study the subjects themselves to see if a new major can be created out of those subjects. For example, let’s look at Philosophy, there are at least 50 majors in Philosophy ..read more
