Oman's SQU to investigate students' performance
- Oman: Wednesday, January 23 - 2013 at 05:16
According to a study by Oman's Sultan Qaboos University (SQU), at least 44% of SQU students take longer than the normal study period to complete their higher education programme, and 9% drop out, Muscat Daily has reported. The study was conducted in an effort to identify the factors affecting students' success and ways to enhance university readiness amongst future college entrants. "Doing well in secondary school does not mean that students will succeed in university studies. Other personal factors might affect the academic success in the university," said Dr Otherine Neisler, research consultant with the College of Education at SQU. "The study will investigate the performance of the students in the foundation programme placement tests compared to their diploma scores in English, math and computer skills."
