Health and illness......... Doctor and patient ..... part two !!

Hi folks
In the previous post I talked about the schools and the colleges in Iraq, I should consider more points which may be of interest to some of you.

When the students pass the secondary school successfully , they have to get some average marks to be eligible for colleges.

We have limited places for students in each particular college. If a college have only 90 chairs for the first year students, and 120 have applied to this college, they chose the 90 of higher average marks.

When the students started to apply to the colleges, they got a printed forms contain the names of all the colleges in all the universities in Iraq. They have to write the name of the desired colleges where they want to apply, according to their preference, they should sort the names according to their wishes.

All the filled forms go the "Ministry of High Education and Scientific Researches" where they distribute the names according to the average degrees and the preferences.

The result will be announced all over Iraq at the same time, then every student have to present him self to the administrative office of the college where he has been accepted for interview and to complete the registration to be able to study in that college.

Almost all the colleges are governmental and under direct supervision of the Ministry of High Education and Scientific Researches. We have very little number of private colleges which are usually teach unscientific subjects like history, geography, religions, agriculture and some teaches statistics and accounting .

All the colleges of medicine, pharmacy, engineering, chemistry, physics and so on are governmental. The teaching programs are almost unified in all similar colleges.

The study are free of charge in all the governmental colleges, but not in the private ones.

The study in most branches are for 4 years, except for medical college which is for 6 years. In pharmacy, and dental hygiene it is 5 years.

The sex of the applied student has no effect on the results of acceptance, except in some branches which required special physical fitness.

In short any one who get high degrees can go to the college he want. those who are less fortunate can apply to any private college, but they have to pay for that.

In Saddam times, he gave a privilege to Baath party members and their families, by having 5 degrees added to the average of their marks to enter the competition. So most of them can get the places in the college they want without really deserve it, in addition of taking the place of other candidates.

Salam to every body

Happy Valentine's Day! to you and your family. A special kiss for little Aya!

Your university system (when it's run without favoritism) sounds like a very good one.

Riverbend has a Feb 12 post re. fears she has for a religious government and ministries. Near the end of the post, she tells what happened when she went to the Ministry of Education recently.

Abu Najma,

There was also the seats reserved for the Arab students.

At least 8 students were given seats at my class of Computer Science in 1984. They made something like 10% of the total number of students on that class.

Hi Fayrouz

Your are absolutly right, I forget the seats for arabic students. Sorry for this mistake.

Aunt Najma said...

Fayrouz, you're not the only one who missed the comments' section, I did too! Soon, I'll do something to end this.
People got too angry at each other, and started talking with no reason, I had to stop this somehow!

Just me

you asked "I would like to visit Mosul someday. If I were to come now what percentage of people who want to kill me compare to those who don't? .1%? 2%? 50%? 99%? Would I need to wear a veil and stay hidden all the time".
the answer is No body want to kill you. but some may kidnape you, if you have an eastern face and you can't speak arabic.

I will help test the comments facility.

Thanks again for your posts!

Education is a good thing, I believe. It is good to hear the system in Iraq offers opportunities for low cost and free education. Understanding of science and engineering and medicine are enormously valuable and will make Iraq a richer place.

Best wishes from Sacramento, California.
