As a student of the first year in a renowned education institution in Belait, and as a card holder of a reputable bank, I am frustrated that our student allowance has not come yet though it was promised on the first day of orientation. We were told we would get our allowance for three months!
But now it is almost five months and we still haven't got our allowance, when I asked the seniors about it, they appeared surprised.
They said they too had faced problems in receiving the allowance in time but not this long. What has happened to it?
It's not that we can't ask the help of our parents but as far as I know the meaning of 'students allowance' means some financial independence for students to have the means to study independently.
