YO lets go clubbing, Yo lets go eat out, Yo lets go here, Yo lets go there     Dancing     Dancing     Dancing     Dancing     Dancing     Dancing     Dancing     Dancing

now what does that mean. exactlyErmm

im sure you know what i mean.

but the ones who do not work, will only study , and the whole year they party, so that makes only one job possible before exams - that is to study.

ab atleast exam se pehle padh lena chihiye, pura saal waise bhi here and there hi nikalta hai Smile

arent Indians stereotyped as "closet study." in many cases, university does require to be active not just be a closet study. come home and study.

well we are talking of boards here, what maters is to top, ab university mai padho, closet mein ya kitchen mein does not matter, and yes inidans are sadly stereotyped that way, but desis are active in universities, aren't they indians Big smile

i agree, studies/ work aint for everyone. thankfully, even the western economies and educational systems do just fine on the back of maybe at most 10% achievers. enuff to carry the rest of the folks around. given that, why study when someone can play a vital role filling in, free-loading and flipping burgers, no?

I avoid studying as much as possible. Totally hate school. I tried to sabotage my own acceptance letter to college. That's how bad it is. hehe So I'd be the first person to say that everything is wrong with the school system, and I'm sure that I'd be completely and utterly wrong in saying so.

It's not that I'm bad in school, I do just fine but I have yet to learn much from it. 90% of what I know is what I've learned on my own and 99.9% of what I've needed so far has come from what I've learned on my own and a measly .1% has come from school. I basically just consider school to be a waste of time, money and energy that I could be using to do something a lot more productive. Then again, maybe that's just because I'm in the USA school system. Personally, though, I'm glad I don't have to go through the same system as you. I think the time when my cousin (he's way older than me) made me memorize the times table was the most traumatic experience of my life. So yeah, I'm sure the stress of doing something like that repeatedly would've driven me to do something idiotic.

You know I would love to meet one Desi mom who boasts about her son who dropped out of high school to flip burgers, or her daughter who backpacked across Europe with her trippy hippie boyfriend attending all the rock fests and raves. That would be awesome.

The education system is getting ridiculous in India. My uncle is a professor in St. Xaviers College in Calcutta, he had come to visit the University of Manchester for some conference. Then he visited me as well. He said its so much relaxed here that its like breathing a sigh of relief.

There is too much pressure...my cousin got 92% in his exams in the twelfth standard and still wasn't accepted at uni because the marks are too low. If not the pressure from parents, the pressure from schools and colleges make people paranoid.

When I studied in India I went to the International school which followed the British board, so it was easier for me when I moved here and did my A Levels.
