I don’t believe this!
Humongous alamak lah!
Bernama reported that next year MARA Will Sponsor 200 Students To Romania to take up medicine and petroleum & gas studies at Carol Davila University and Ploiesti University respectively.
No doubt the former has a mid-1800 origin (apparently set up by a Frenchman Carol Davila in 1857), but that country has since gone to the dogs, especially during the Cold War period.
It seems that in the Academic Ranking of World Universities in 2006, there was no Romanian university placed in the first 500 top universities, and that the No 1 Romanian university, Bucharest University, could only achieve half the score of the last university in the world top 500.
A Hungarian friend told me that during the Warsaw Pact days if you wanted to punish someone you gave him a Romanian made car – wakakakakakakaka.
I wonder whether Noh Omar Entrepreneur and Cooperatives Development Minister who made that sponsorship declaration has been properly briefed on the quality of Romania’s educational system or for that matter, any of its systems?
Is he giving the 200 MARA students each a Romanian car? wakakaka
