Those who were selected for in-country institutes,like NIE Samtse and Paro, they have already completed their first half year. Those who are perusing studies outside the country on their won are on their way. They are pretty sure of where and when they will go. Enough of mental preparation!
Those who are selected for ex-country scholarship too knows which country they are going and the courses they will pursue. But don't know when they have to leave and to which college they will study. A very long break indeed!
We always wait for our cell phones to buzz...to get college confirmation from Scholarship Division. Ask any body and the answer is the same. Same is the case for me. Waiting and waiting. What if they call me suddenly and ask me to leave for the college? No preparation!
But, now, I am no longer worried. I got my college confirmation on July 8, 2011. I now know where i have to go. They have decided to send me to Navodaya College of Physiotherapy, Raichur, Karnataka in India. But before that i will have to go to Scholarship Division in Thimphu either with my parents or a guardian on September 28. And leave for studies on October 2.
Soon i will be leaving my comfort zone but i promise to come back with more knowledge and skills.Some friends might be literally jealous about my long break but I admit that it was a long boring break too.
I was worried initially with whom I should be travelling, as only two of us are selected for this course. But now i am happy as one of my class mates, Thinley Dorji, will be going to the same college.He will be taking B.Sc Nursing.
I started browsing the net soon after I received my college confirmation. And I found a wealth of knowledge regarding academic Programs, hostel facilities, college campus, practices that we would get and other facilities like library, lecture gallery, and many more.
Now I know where and when I have to go, with whom I will be travelling and what I will be studying. I am now mentally prepared too. This is all due to timely college confirmation...
But I still have about three months before I leave to my college. So what should I do????????
