Nowdays the students have more stress than before.When i was a primary scholar,i only take 30 minutes to do my homeworks,when i studied at junior high school,it takes me at least 2 hours to do my homeworks.when i studied at senior high school,i didn't know how many time i worked.Because all of the time after i went home,i was doing my homeworks till 12 o'clock at evening.In china,studying before university is hard,students want to go to the best primary school,junior high school,senior high school to get the best education and get the oppotunity to get the university which the want.and the trend is more and more serious now.so I see nowdays students studying all the time.

In my country, we don't really get heavy homeworks that much except for the occasional reading assignments that no one really does except for those really nerdy ones who want to please the teacher. I usually do those before the class will begin. Just a minor scan to have an idea of what is to be discussed in class. Most of the professors here pile the big heavy homeworks as term papers. 15 or so pages of mindless babble with big words that I think they themselves don't understand. As long as a lot of paper was used, and you throw a big word here and there, then you're all good.

generally,homework in my country is heavy .the teachers hold the view that practice makes perfect,though it's not always correct.i remember in my childhoold ,assignments took up all my free time so that i have no time for my interests.i suppose there should be proper homework and depend on the subjects as some subjects needs more thinking instead of training.

in australia, it depends on how much homework you get. in primary school the homework every day should take about half an hour. in high school homework should take from 1-3 hours, but this really depends on whether or not the student has assignments to complete. if they do have assignments it could take longer than usual.
