  1. Nandar Nwe Oo says:

    I am Nandar Nwe Oo; I was born on 19.08.1978 in Ayeyarwaddy Division, Myanmar. I was borned with seven months old and I has only 3lbs weight I am a physically handicapped person especially C.P. I have suffered from right sided hemipareris due to neonatal jaundice. My father is Director of Aung Shwe Pwint company .He was B.Ecom Degree holder at University of Yangon . My mother was a B.Sc degree holder majoring in Physics. I have one younger brother and he got B.E ( civil) and He is an Assistance Engineer in Department of Central Training School. My younger brother is married but I am single.

    My high school student life was in Ayeyarwaddy and Yangon Divisions in Myanmar. I passed the matriculation examination at Yangon in 1996 with two distinctions. I continued my education at Dagon University from 1999 to 2004 and at Yangon University from 2004 to 2006. I completed my B.Sc ( Hons:) majoring in Mathematics in 2004. I continued my education at the same University and I got my M.Sc ( Eng Maths ) degree in 2006. My University education was based on full time attendance. Anyway my M.Sc degree in Mathematics may be different in terms of qualification level. Provided that my M.Sc degree cannot be matched with M.Sc or Ph.D in your country. I would like to apply first M.Sc Degree in Mathematics as a research candidate. I am confident that it shall be the only possible way to successfully complete Ph.D degree. In this regard, I shall abide by the principles or instructions of Sponsorship Authorities.

    Actually I am ambitious to get Ph.D degree at Yangon University. But it is inconvenient for me as it is only possible for University teachers. On the other side, it is very difficult to be a tutor or demonstrator at University especially for person with disabilities like me. Therefore I am working at family company as a supervisor and executive member of NGO at Myanmar Physically Handicapped Association. This is meant for getting some family income and waiting for opportunity to continue my education. My present work is based on construction and community based rehabilitation and development of disable people in our country. You may see our association’s activities on our website: http://www.myanmarphysicallyhandicappedassociation,org
    I have never been applying for oversea awards as it is very inconvenient for private civilian like me. On the other side I was ignorant to seek some opportunities through internet websites. Now I find out this Scholarship Program and this is the first time to apply foreign scholarship award.
    Topic of research
    I set up my mathematical models of processes and systems that are affected by “chance“. In Mathematical Statistics, I find out these models against the reality, to determine whether they are faithful and accurate enough for practical purpose. Finally, this purpose is making conclusions about properties of the population. according to those conclusions, we can use those data as based for making predictions, decisions and actions, for instance, in whether forecast or market analysis or traffic planning, in developing economical plans, in buying raw materials or machines or equipment, in methods of advertising and selling products, in taking action against dangerous discuses, and so on.
    So I did my first approach in their teams and then I continued samples and their means. Secondly I tried to approach Statistical Methods with points and interval estimation of parameters and continue with hypothesis testing and application, goodness to fit (test for distribution functions), and some nonparametric tests. The last one or my recently works are deals with pairs of measurements and regression analysis, but I have not done well yet.
    Now I want to study in any Mathematical related field. Please give me an opportunity and make my dream true.
    I am looking forward to hear the good news from you.
    With regard;
    Nandar Nwe Oo
