    I remember when I was in my final years of high school. My parents kept telling me to ace my exams so I could prepare to go study in the UK. After passing my O' Levels, I did A Level to get admission into the University of Law in Manchester so I could get my LLB.

    However, upon my finishing A Levels, my father went into serious debt with a local bank and all my hopes of schooling in the UK were dashed upon the rocks. Now, my next aim was to secure an admission into a good school here in my home country if nothing.

    So I applied to one I knew was good after writing national exams and I got admission. But my father didn't let me resume because he felt the public schools in my country are no good.

    After I persuaded him, he let me go register - but it was too late. Registration had closed. I sat at home for one year, waiting patiently for the next national exams. When it finally came I passed and had to write a newly implemented entrance exam to the school. This exam had 50 questions for all the participants, 20 of these questions were math-based and I did maths approximately three years ago. I got 13/30 when my results came out and it crushed me. I couldn't get admission this year once again.

    It seems to me like I'll be sitting at home for another year. What the hell do I do with my life?
