Exam results - 4 weeks to go.Watch
Please don't post thingas like this - I get nervous!!!!
Uk Education system sucks.. Maybe I should drop out and just become a plumber. They earn upto £50grand a year. (yes fifty thousand! my uncle is one with his own business... people are so stupid, U can get paid £60 for changing a tap!)
I agree though that the UK education system is kinda stupid, but I'm not keen on the new government proposals to drop GCSE, AS and A2, which would in effect make most of our qualifications useless, not to mention that the gov would probably do their usual, and screw it up.
You all have come a long way from picking your nose and wetting your pants in primary school (don't worry if you still do) and that is achievement in itself.
2 teenagers per week kill themselves under the pressure of school and exams which is very upsetting.
Even if you end up becoming a plumber or a doggie business cleaner, everyone of you as managed to cope unlike the poor souls who will never get their results or are worse off through no falut of their own.
There are loads blind, deaf, wheelchair bound and people in third world countries who will not get the chances you will, so instead of worrying about your results think about them for once.
So when people complain about exams and their future it really annoys me.
If I go to university, I will be the first ever person out of my family and I consider myself very luckly. My family aren't stupid just unluckly.
People in the 3rd world have 4 needs: food, water, protection from elements, health services. thats all they need to live in their environment.
compare that to a 16 year old student who is being forced to work towards 11 GCSEs, coursework, revision, exams. Then the pressure to do well by family members, the old "i'm very prove of you" quote adds pressure to do well. After you get your GCSES another 2 years of advanced level studies, where you must learn in detail 3 or maybe 4 subjects in extreme detail. the pressure to do well is increased even more. Then what?
Another 3 years of uni, then a job, get a home, married, kids, cars, hoilidays and all the other stuff people in the modern world work for.
I dont know about you but the 3rd world life seems less stressful and more forfilling allowing life to be lived instead of wasted in years in classrooms.
Remember after finishing alevels you have spent 13 years in school, 13 bloody years out of the 18 years of your life.
Life is hard
