I'm from india.here too the higher secondary schooling gains importance.that determines ones life roughly.Now im in college and i'm really missing those days in my school...those days are really sweeter than sugarcane.we studied, played,enjoyed a lot...High school is also important but not as important as higher secondary.referring to books is good.........

7:30 AM to 5:00 PM?! Wow! At my school, Creighton Prep, we only went to school from 7:45-3:15 - and that was a long day! Nowadays they only go from 8:00 to 2:45 or so thanks to block scheduling. We study a lot less, but a lot more, if you take my meaning. Creighton's a Jesuit College Preparatory school, you see. The priests and layfolk who taught us there tried to give us a vigorous education, as one might get at college. Block scheduling meant we attended three or four classes a day (rather than seven or eight - that's the good news), but each of them was 90 minutes long (that's the bad news)! I enjoyed my classes, and most of my classmates behaved in class. There were only a few classes in which they acted like idiots: Philosophy and British Literature in my Senior Year, and Algebra 1 in my Freshman Year. I have no idea why they did. Maybe it was the buildup of a few loudmouthed bad apples, I dunno. But I wish that I could have learned more in those classes.:-/ Creighton is an all-male school, so we never had time to gaulk at members of the opposite gender. More time spent studying and learning. I'm glad about it when I look back at it, because I think girls would have distracted me at that crucial period of school work. Who wants to mess up their lives on dating and hormones when a high school diploma can get one into a veritable range of jobs - or better yet, a college?
