Kais Abdel-Kader, Science Stream, Class of 2014
What course of study did you decide on after receiving your Baccalaureate?
"I decided to continue my higher education at medical school in France. I passed the PACES competition (a competition that allows access to medical studies) at the end of the year and was accepted into Pharmacy school. As my wish is to continue my studies in medicine, I decided to return to Jordan."
Was your return to Jordan easy?
"To study medicine in Jordan, you must take an equivalent of the French Baccalaureate. I discovered that the Baccalaureate is a diploma that is recognized worldwide. In Jordan, there are places reserved for students who have obtained an international diploma such as the Baccalaureate. That made things easier for me."
How are your studies in Jordan going?
"My classes are in English, and thanks to my LFA schooling, my English is very good despite the fact that my family is Arabic-speaking. So I haven’t had any problems with the language of instruction. The French education system has taught me critical thinking and independent work skills that are crucial to me today. I’m therefore quite comfortable now in my current studies."
