This post is especially dedicated to all of our students who have their exams on Thursday, 23 May 2019. We, all, have been seeing alerting posts everywhere on social media and the news about the significant rise of temperature during the upcoming days of the week, including today. The peak, however, is expected to be on Friday, 24 May 2019.
Since some of you are still having their exams, here are some tips that’ll help you get through the day:
- Stay well-hydrated the night before.
- Wear lightweight and light-coloured clothing
- Seek shade to break from the heat.
A high temperature of 43 C is forecasted for both Thursday & Friday, which is above the normal high-temperature levels by 10 degrees. This heat wave is expected to expand quickly into the middle east and is supposed to cool off by Saturday. If you don’t have exams on any of the above-mentioned dates, it’s recommended to stay at home.
Stay cool everyone,
Best of luck

The 31st of May, is observed every year around the world as World Tobacco Day.
Can you go 24 hours tobacco-free?
Here is Why You Should:
The focus of the day this year as posted and announced by WHO is “tobacco and lung health”. No Tobacco Day not only aims to raise awareness about the disastrous effect tobacco has on the lungs and the general health of the body, but also, aims to entice and inspire the world to live tobacco free for 24 hours.
We certainly encourage everyone who reads this post to share and help raise awareness against tobacco in all its forms. We, here at CIC, have 2 campuses tobacco-free. Since our very beginning in 2004, we prohibited smoking on campus. We started this initiative in an attempt to keep our students healthy at least for those hours they spend at CIC and in an attempt to keep our environment clean. Know more about the history of CIC
You can learn more about the day as posted by World Health Organization WHO here.
Most importantly, every one of us should be an advocate to the day. Be proactive and effective in your community and promote your health, your family’s and friends’.
Make Everyday No Tobacco Day.
You get to know yourself more when you throw yourself out there in a new environment and deal with everything differently and find yourself opening up for new experiences, people, and opportunities. “Travel far enough, you meet yourself” – Cloud Atlas
Meeting awesome people!
Meeting new people can be very interesting and that your actual friends will get tired of hearing about it. (They’ll possibly be jealous). Making friends with people from different backgrounds, vast cultures and societies provide you with the kind of education that you won’t be able to get from school, college or university.
Gaining impressive Skills!
You become more confident and sociable. You improve your communication skills as you learn about new things and gain new interests. Oh! And it’ll also look good on your CV as well.
Being fully independent!
It’s not easy to be independent. Being put in the position of being on your own gives you real-life education and lets you grow and experience how it’s like to have responsibilities.
Exploring heart-wrenching places!
You spare some time to wander and take your mind off of things and who knows how many sightly, beautiful places and things you can come across.
Your overall experience of traveling should be hearty and fulfilling. Every new place you go you learn something new and different. Get out there and find out what’s waiting for you!
