DPS student is on cloud nine

Twins Vineet and Vivek during a science show in Dubai
DUBAI , (UAE):  Delhi Private School(DPS)  Dubai is on cloud nine as its student, Vineet Nair, has become the top scorer in CBSE exams in the UAE. This is the first time a DPS student gets into the pinnacle of CBSE rank.
Vineet Nair, whose parents are hailing from the state of Kerala, India, scored 98.2 per cent in the science stream. “We are extremely proud. It’s a great sense of achievement and pride and, I mean, we are at the top of the world.”- said Rachna Prakash, DPSD headmistress.
 “I was shocked,” a rather meek Vineet Nair’s first response was like this. Vineet lives in Dubai with his parents and twin brother, Visakh. Although Visakh did not score as high as his brother, he still achieved an overall score of 95.2 in the science stream.
Visakh and Vineet  kept a strict schedule on their study regimen that included tutoring three times a week for two and a half hours, and twice-daily enrichment classes. Vineet credited his teachers, his school and Knowledge Planet for helping him to ace the test.Vineet now decided to pursue his engineering studies at the University of California.
Study secrets
“We used to come in at 6.30am, so one hour before school we used to practise higher-level questions and extra questions,” Vineet unravels his study secrets.. “And then I just revise daily and then review past year’s papers. And my teachers at my school, they gave us papers with the feedback, extra classes, afternoon classes, morning classes. By the time we were done, we were very well prepared for the exams.”- he added.
The best advice he has for students who will be sitting the exam next March is to “get as much practice as you can”.
“That’s very key to doing well in the board examinations. Just keep regularly revising, at least in the core subjects, physics, chemistry and maths,” Vineet said. “Don’t get nervous. Pray and do your best.”- he capped his advice in two sentences.
Gems CBSE schools upheld their successful track record with a 100 per cent pass rate, according to a news release. Out of 1,163 students who wrote the exam, 21.6 per cent scored an average of 90 per cent. A total of 69.6 per cent of the students scored above 75 per cent and 98.3 per cent of students scored above 60 per cent.
Indian High School Dubai is presumed to have the top scorers in the commerce and humanities streams, where Sachin Nair achieved a score of 97.6 per cent in commerce and Annalie Gracias earned 96.4 per cent in humanities.
Much like the American SAT or the British A Level, the scores from the Indian CBSE are used by universities as a factor in determining a student’s admission.

Arab girl with NASA lessons

Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi-hailed Emirati student Ghena Al Hanae is now a more wiser women on space and science. She had experienced all drama behind the NASA lab's new space craft Curiosity Rover, which was build for exploring Mars to find out if life could have existed in this red planet. During the making of Curiosity Rover, a 2.5 billion US dollar project, she was undergoing her internship in NASA. This is one of the specially chosen moments experienced by an Arab student.

Ghena Al Hanae from Abu Dhabi, has recently completed a 16-week placement at the Nasa Lunar Science Institute, hosted by the Ames Research Centre.Nasa Lunar Science institute contributed to the software design, sensor integration and wind-tunnel testing that went into building the Mars exploration satellite rover. Ames Research Centre plays a critical role in virtually all NASA missions in support of America's space and aeronautics programs.

Her next step will be for a eHmaster's in energy-resources eng…

Why You Should Not Opt For IIT Bombay

This article is written by IITians in theblog

If asked to compare IIT Bombay to IIT Delhi, most students say that the difference is negligible. Both are in metropolitan cities with good options for hostels, PG accommodations, food and entertainment. Cultural activities are equally good as is the faculty and study methodology. Even placements at the two IITS are amongst the best in the country. Yet figures indicate that the top JEE rank holders prefer Computer Science Engineering at IIT Mumbai rather than IIT Delhi. But, we are here to tell you when and why you can avoid IIT Mumbai.

Mumbai IIT was earlier placed in the suburbs, away from the crowds, giving IITians the space and peace to pursue their career goals. Today the area in Powai is surrounded by high rise building, malls and traffic snarls, bringing with it all the clatter and patter of a metropolitan hub. Just like the population and popularity of Powai and its neighbouring areas has grown, so has the quality of education at thi…

AUS wins Dh30m research fund in Sharjah

Sharjah: Plans for three new research centres have been approved by the American University of Sharjah(AUS), paving the way for work in fields as diverse as Islamic finance and archaeology.

The centres - for research into Gulf coastal ecosystems, Islamic finance and banking, and humanities and science - were approved last week by the university's board of trustees, which gave the projects a Dhs30m endowment over five years.

Despite being young in age, American University of Sharjah (AUS) has earned a fortunate reputation throughout the region for its academic excellence and multicultural campus life. Founded in 1997 by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qassimi, Member of the Supreme Council of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Sharjah, the university was envisaged by His Highness as a leading educational institution in the Gulf region. Consciously based upon American institutions of higher education, AUS is thoroughly grounded in Arab culture and is part of a larg…
