11765_10_2_2015_1.gifWe need science teachers

Lack of well trained science teachers in the schools in every part of Balochistan is a crucial issue for the students of the province. Educational authorities need to look into this issue and solve it as soon as possible. Balochistan is the largest province of Pakistan, and it has been deprived of educational facilities - one reason is the lack of well trained science teachers. ....

Thoughts after setting foot in medical college
By Iqra Asad
11767_10_2_2015_1.gifProfessional college feels weird. I never believed in the “college means freedom” myth because I knew that college means a lot of hard work. But some things are so startlingly different that they continue to feel strange even after weeks. For one thing, there is no longer any restriction on bringing our mobile phones on campus. Before, it used to be “it isn’t allowed” (even though every teacher knew that we brought them anyway and we knew that they knew). Or “you can’t bring camera phones here”. (The amazing number of photos of our pre-medical years on Facebook is a proof of how much we upheld that rule. ....

From a mere idea to an achievement!
By Sarah B Haider
11768_10_2_2015_1.gifThe very idea of attaining higher education always enthralled me. After graduating from university with flying colours, I planned to go abroad for a master’s degree in journalism. Nonetheless, I was discouraged by the cost of studying abroad as it was not affordable for people like me who come from moderate backgrounds. But, upon a teacher’s suggestion, I started applying for different scholarship and professional fellowship programmes offered by different countries. ....

Not getting their money’s worth
11769_10_2_2015_1.gifI am a student from SZABIST’s Law school currently doing my bachelors through the international programmes offered by the university. Studying at SZABIST has helped me in pursuing my dream of becoming a lawyer. I had very limited options to choose from because there are hardly any institutions in Karachi/Pakistan that offer the University of London (UOL) programme. This degree is a reputed degree recognised all over the world, but has limited applicability within the Pakistani system. Hence, by the time we graduate and look for jobs, there is a lot we need to know on our own about the law being followed in Pakistan. ....

My life is a mess
Dear Guru,
I am an 18-year-old girl. I belong to a middleclass family. Up till O-Level I was a great student. I got straight As in my O-Level and studied the first year of my A Levels on full scholarship, which was a relief for my parents because we have been going through a huge financial crisis for the past few years. But, in the second year of A-Levels, I took tuition as my mind got distracted and I was unable to concentrate. As such, I couldn’t perform well. My grades have fallen and my mother is really upset with me. Actually, Guru, the main culprit behind my poor performance is none other than my own father. ....
