You try to deduce rules through systematic research, from which you can be certain that they are always valid in various circumstances.

Pinar Selimoglu

Pinar Selimoglu, completed her Bachelors in 2007 in Bachelor of Arts in English Translation and Interpretation. After a gap of 8 years, she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of studying Astronomy. She was accepted to many universities in the US and Europe, and she decided to accept the offer from University of Delaware.

Pinar's Testimonial

I came to Brighterprep two years ago; seeking help from people who could help me achieve my not-so-common aspiration: 'to realize my childhood dream to study astronomy as a 30-year-old second bachelors degree student'. And I wanted to do this in US which is the number one country in space. I needed people who would believe in me and provide every educational as well as psychological support instead of listing the reasons why it would be difficult for me to do this at this age as second bachelors. Brighterprep has been that place of genuine support for me with Roshan, Varun, Donita and all their teachers. They are without doubt the best educational counsellors of Dubai. After an ardouos two years of efforts, I am now settled in US to start studying Physics with Astronomy concentration at the University of Delaware. Roshan's university suggestions considering my special preferences have been right on the spot. I got 3 acceptances out of 4 universities, and I even got a decent scholarship from one of them. Everybody at Brighterprep has been very hardworking and sincere towards me in this journey. I wouldn't have come this far without their help and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who has big dreams
