Looking at the list of subjects, now I know why the children going to school are carrying such a big bag. The bag must be filled with text books, workbooks and exercise books for the various subject.
Seeing these people scoring so many As, I wondered whether these As will help them in life in the future. Should they want to further their studies academically at universities, the results that showed many As will help them to gain entry easily. However, getting good academic results is not all that is required to be successful in life. A person need to learn the inter personel skills and the "laws of society survival" to be successful. I was looking at the newspapers today, even Einstein did not score many As but still he is the world most famous genius. Lim Goh Tong did not any academic qualification but he is a multi billionaire.
Me? Well, I did not have any As. I am just an average Joe who is happy with my current success and do not have regrets over what results I have obtained for my exams.
