... I finished my propedeutical college year, meaning I finally made it into the university (going to study some more psychology only at a higher level).
Finally, 2 years late but what the hell... I'll get there in the end icon_wink.gif

Way to go, Nefi! Congratulations!

Education here in Sweden is really slow...
First we have 9 (nine) years of compulsory education (ages 6-15). It's written in law that you must go those 9 years. Then we have 3-4 years of education, that is not mandatory. But it's considered basic education, and you're pretty much screwed if you don't take it. It's free though. Every student has a right to 4 years of free education at that school (we call it Gymnasium).
After that, it's adviced to go in and focus more on a certain subject. I'm not sure how many years it is, it's pretty much up to you. But I guess it is around 2-4 years. The name of that school translates to "High School" but it's definitely not the same as US High School.

So if you go through all this non-stop, without taking a year or two off, you'll be between 20-25 years old before you can go to University here.

Yeah.. in teh US they jerk you around for years holding us at the level of everybody else so that none of the other students feel bad about themselves being left behind. This continues through the thirteen years of public education that is all but forced on us. The last four of those years are almost a complete waste of time where all of the males have pissing contests to prove their manlyhood and the females primp themselves out in gaudy dispalys trying to catch the attention of the males who are currently pissing the furthest. Contrary to how it sounds, I had a great time in high school, although it was nearly complete educational waste of time. But who ever said public schooling had anything to do with educating the youth? So Nefiorim, congratulations and consider yourself lucky that your education system (as I understand it in my near ignorance) is broken up the way that it is allowing you to excel and make the most of your educational experience.

stupid UA schools and uber-competitive student body...

the average grade point average is at least (conservative estimate) 3.0/4.0, and it's not like our school is fucking with the curriculum (sp)...

no, my spelling errors are NOT from shitty english classes, but mostly from the summer, you know, when I forgot how to speak English fluently...

Nei, 'tis true that we are much much too restricted when it comes to how some people could be starting college at 16 or even younger. But keep in mind that the male pissing contests and the female primping occurs mostly because of the f'd up ultra-materialistic and gender-molding culture that we have here in the U.S. The newspapers, magazines, T.V., billboards, etc., all start telling our children from the word GO how they are "supposed" to look/talk/eat/dress/act.

I am raising twin boys. It's tough always having to steer them to the truth, to reality. But it's a battle I relish. icon_twisted.gif

No Kidding TP, could the classes get any easier? Schooling here has turned into a joke. Every level I advanced the teachers kept saying it'll get harder... it never does. If it did some dumbass might feel bad because he's a dumbass. College is the same here too... they don't expect s*it out of you, it's like a second high school just with some more freedoms. I'm done with this topic now though.

lmao....ok I have to disagree with Nei. They do not hold you back in the US just so other retards can feel better about themselves.... I took college courses as a junior and senior in high school at Kent State University, and those credits doubled for both hs and college credit, so by the time I actually graduated Highschool at the age of 18 and went to Ohio State, I already had 67 credits done towards my Computer Science and Engineering degree, making me almost a junior.

And my friend did the same thing I did, is only a few months older than I am, and is already working on her Masters at 21. So um yeah. Nerds unite. icon_cool.gif

As for the other shit, male pissing contests and female primping.... well, I made my own rules. Total problem with authority and following the crowd. I had a good time in hs.

Anyway, congrats Nefi

Im still in High school, and I'm feeling like the most anti-social person on the entire school haha... Last year I was in the same class as a friend of mine, and well he was pretty much the only one I spoke to on my own iniative... Nowadays if nobody talks to me I say nothing...

Ack I hate high school, I hate those pissy teachers who think they are so much better then you, my freking english teacher wanted to teach me how to search on google! But I browsed google when he was still eating his own shit! (Okay thats pretty much not true... but well, it reflects how I feel) And I just hate those arrogant teachers, they should all be thrown out of a window! icon_mrgreen.gif
