Last night was another marathon session for another school application form for both the girls. I reckon it was about a good 4 to 5 hours.
By the time you get the forms from the websites, print them, fill them all in, scan them, create the emails, attach all the required informations from medical forms to school reports to immunisation records your head is mince.
Then, you get the emails not delivered because of message size limits. So, you create new emails and split the contents across them and add the narrative and send again for a fingers crossed!
I also had to rescan the school reports as the original pdfs scanned were excessive. Not only that, because the way the school provides them, A5 sheets for each individual specialist subject and A4 pages for your standard english and maths etc. putting them through the ADF didn't really work, so ended up hand cranking them through the scanner building up the pdf file and also reducing the size further by doing it in grayscale rather than colour.
Well hopefully that is it now, 3 schools applied for. Just need to get the attested reports back from the legalisation office and the Qatar Embassy as these are needed for later on.
Will probably then have to repeat that again for when the current school year reports come out in June.
Needless to say, I hope they get in somewhere so we don't have to go through this again!
