By meeting with the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, Oktay made his biggest dream come true: “I was impressed by the simplicity, sincerity and benevolence of Mr. President. He warmly greeted everyone and listened to each of us. I also approached the Head of State, shook his hand and said that I was studying at Baku Higher Oil School. The President asked me to convey his regards to the students. For me, as well as for our entire university, it is a great honor to hear kind words from Mr. President”.

Oktay Amrahov said that he chose BHOS on the advice of a teacher who taught him chemistry in high school. Following this advice, Oktay decided to enter the Petroleum Engineering Department of BHOS, and he achieved this target by showing high results in the entrance exams. His goal is to become one of the most successful students of Baku Higher Oil School.
