Meet our student, Farz Halim, an ex-student of La Martiniere for Boys and currently a 3rd year student of Astrophysics at University of Toronto, Canada.
Farz wanted to quit after the first year because he felt he was failing his parents and wasting their money; his academic performance was not what he had planned. But then he realised where he was going wrong. All he needed to do was to understand the methods of the new system of education, he needed to manage his study plans, decide on which classes to attend, when to study independently and the importance of assignments. In Canada, you design your course and are responsible for your own self, both personal and academic.
Let’s listen to his experiences as he shares his secret to a successful student life at the University of Toronto.
