Shahriar’s Education History
Don’t exactly remember my first day at school but can still remember that soon after I started in Standard-One, at the age of seven, my teachers recommended that I be promoted to Standard-Two as I already knew more than was required for Standard-One.
I would like to think that my life abroad has contributed immensely to my education and made me the person that I am today; not to mention the three languages that I can read, write and speak (English, Arabic and Bengali) and a fourth one that I can speak (Hindi).
Below is a short history of my formal education. I thought I will present this in the order it actually happened, as my CV lists the same in the ‘most recent first’ format.
