I thought I would share something I learnt a couple of days ago - and I will say it objectively. But if that be the case i have to keep it short and simple.
I was talking to someone whose been through the American schooling system (yes, yet again it's about America. Sorry everyone). about the schooling system. So this is how their last two years go.
They have their final exams halfway through year eleven (SATs). Got that? Then, well i don't know quite what they do for the rest of that year but in year 12, apparently they don't really do much work because the whole year is spent doing univesity applications. I'll let you mull over that.
And their SAT's are well....this is what i understand. They have a lot of multiple choice I think, um and well they have essays!!! But they are a page long and the example given me of a question was a subjectuive question, not an academic one. Mum said then that she thought first year college must be like our HSC year that sentiment was affirmed by our informant.
My two readers, GO!
