Al-Bayan Bilin­gual School’s Col­lege & Univer­sity night

Kuwait Times - - What’s On -

As al­ways del­e­gated Al-Bayan Bilin­gual School has been sup­port­ing its stu­dents and al­ways had faith in the stu­dent’s ded­i­ca­tion to ed­u­ca­tion. Al-Bayan Bilin­gual School held a col­lege and univer­sity night in Dalal Waleed Al Hu­maidhi Theater Hawally Cam­pus and wel­comed a num­ber of guest speak­ers such as Kuwait Univer­sity, the Amer­i­can Univer­sity of Kuwait, Ed­u­ca­tion USA - US Em­bassy and Kuwait Univer­sity As­sess­ment Of­fice.

The night was also at­tended by BBS stu­dents and fam­i­lies and a num­ber of Non-BBS stu­dents and their fam­i­lies, along with the school ad­min­is­tra­tion and High School Coun­selors who or­ga­nized this suc­cess­ful night in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dr Duna Al Mashaan, Ed­u­ca­tional Con­sul­tant for Schools and Fam­i­lies, Ed­u­ca­tional Fu­tures and Score Plus Learn­ing Cen­ter Kuwait - The Prince­ton Re­view, USA .

The main top­ics cov­ered dur­ing this event were about the 4 year Plan­ning Univer­sity Process, Col­lege Ad­mis­sion Re­gional Re­quire­ments, Col­lege Search: Bridge U Pro­gram Col­lege and Ca­reer Ex­plo­ration Tools, Col­lege En­trance ex­ams (PSAT, SAT, ACT, TOEFL, ILETS) and Stu­dent Visas, types of uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges, get­ting an early start, Min­istry re­quire­ments, tu­ition and liv­ing ex­penses, and fi­nally Test­ing Prep by the Prince­ton Re­view Mas­ter Trainer Den­nis Or­tiz who said “Sun­day evening’s Col­lege and Univer­sity night was a great op­por­tu­nity to con­nect with stu­dents and their par­ents.

Many times the ad­mis­sions process is such a mys­tery to par­ents, es­pe­cially if they have never sent off a child to col­lege be­fore. This was an op­por­tu­nity for all stake­hold­ers in the process to an­swer wildly vary­ing ques­tions. Test prepa­ra­tion is such a cen­tral piece of the puz­zle that I en­joyed very much field­ing ques­tions and al­lay­ing parental con­cerns”.
