We have seven possible candidates for university sponsorships this year, but it has been difficult to make decisions and prepare the students, as many have not yet received their grades three weeks after school was completed. Those that will go on to university need to have an 80% average, and must take the university entrance exam. This year, however, they have discontinued the university entrance exam, except for the Medicine and Engineering departments! I am still having all our candidates take the test and a prep course, so I have some idea if they will be able to function at that academic level. They must have above a 50%. The recent education changes are not the kind of changes we would hope to see, but we will do our best to fight for a quality education for our children here, as it is critical for the future- not only of these young people, but for their country as well.
We are so grateful for the determination of so many of our students and families, who despite difficult circumstances, continue to push forward. We are so blessed to have such wonderful sponsors which assist us in our education mission! Thank you for using your blessing to be a blessing!
