During this time a proposal cropped up from the Senior Management Committee of Mercy Education Campus to conduct degree courses especially for our own students who could not enter the local universities after passing the G.C.E.(Advanced Level) examination. This made him to think of doing a doctoral degree and immediately started to work on that. He registered for a doctoral degree with the University of Santander – Panama through International European Campus. As he is giving leadership to an educational institute he thought he should do his research work in education and after much reading started to write his dissertation in ‘TEACHERS’ SELF-EFFICACY AND CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT’ with special reference to Graduate and Trained Teachers of public schools. He completed all his studies submitted his dissertation in early 2021 now he is awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Alhamdhu Lillah.
