Important Message for Seniors!

26 Aug

Hello Seniors,

I hope you all enjoyed your summer and are looking forward to your final year at ASK!

Exciting and challenging times ahead!

I just thought I would write to remind you all of some very important points I raised during classroom visits and College Night last year.

  • The search for appropriate colleges and specific college requirements is ultimately your responsibility. 
  • As advised, you should have already researched particular requirements for the majors and colleges you might be interested in.
  • Please make sure you have the courses required on your schedule to avoid last minute surprises.


For those Kuwaiti Nationals who will be seeking a government scholarship, please remember that the Ministry of Higher Education requires you to take Pre-Calculus and Physics (in grades 11 or 12) for any science related majors such as engineering, architecture, medicine, pharmacy etc.   Similarly, universities will require you to have these subjects (at least) on your high school transcript if you wish to pursue your higher education in a science-related field.   Always refer to the universities’ website if you are in any doubt as to their requirements.

Otherwise, I am always available to assist you in your college application process; please do not hesitate to come and see me if you have any questions.

Wishing you a successful year!

Lena Hakim
