One student at Zawadi secondary school lamented that: the students who opted for science subject are forced to choose the alternative practical subject.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
