    9.3 /10

    I found this college randomly through an online advertisement and then I looked it up on the internet. A GPA of 8.5 in my bachelor's degree and 90% in my high school provided much aid to get through the admission process. An application fee of $150 dollars was paid by me along with an evaluation fee of around $100 as I submitted my application through OUAC.

    Course Curriculum :

    My course provided me much-needed knowledge about the human brain and its workings. It has helped me figure out various reasons for human behaviors and detect the cause and effect relationship between them. The curriculum is designed to make us understand with perfection human psychology and makes us field ready.
