I am in Abu Dhabi for residence visa processing and I expect the process to take about a week or so. Next step is to rent a house in Sharjah & sponsor dependents which may take another month or two. I am wondering if I would be able to get my child enrolled in a school by that time ? My daughter would be going to standard KG-2. I already hear there is an entrance test in almost each and every school which I find weird. Not sure if British schools are better either - perception of quality of schooling & medical facilities is poor as I hear from different people. I am shocked to hear from people that quality of education & doctors is better in India.
