You have your whole life to dedicate to finding the cure for AIDS if you wanted to. No one's pressuring you on the humanities at age 50. Surely no high school student is on the brink of a revolutionizing drug but is squashed by the need to finish their history homework. Besides you're making it sound like emphasis on humanities are some sort of villain here, crushing the dreams of future brilliant scientists.
I mean people who can't get into good schools Because if crappy history results. They don't even get the needed education, which hy would need to find the cures.
Well undergrad schools don't really matter when it comes to developing such a huge thing like that. What matters is graduate school or other degrees like a PhD, where this future scientist would probably go do more focused work. You could do those programs at a different school, where they would only evaluate for example the sciences. If you apply for med school your GPA is important, but you'd also have to take a subject specific test. All I'm saying is that if you failed every single history course you ever took provided you still could graduate, you're not stopped from pursuing science. Besides at least they could put in a little effort or take basic history courses.
Yeah I only have information from Singapore. It's pretty much illegal to excel in anything without being quite good in everything else here .
That's not a very good system. You should still try, though. Humanities are pretty important.
I'm god in science but not that good. U suck at humanities but I am trying. You should read a Singapore social studies textbook and you'll see the bullshit theyre feeding us.
Wow, I didn't realize. Why does Singapore not let you excel in one area unless you excel in all the others?
If you get consistent 100s in all the sciences, for example, you're no better than someone who gets consistent 75s (the next grade is 74). We need six subjects to get into high school. We have to take eight, for two safety nets. If we have 5 100s and one 74, the score is considered worse than someone with 6 75s. There is no average of your score to help you. You must be good in everything before they nurture the stuff you're actually going to use. I think a lot if not all the commonwealth countries use this system. google L1R5 and GCE O levels.
I meant good. I left out an o, and I suck at humanities.. I think I hit a different key on my phone and it autocorrected.
Well one positive aspect I can see in this is that you don't have to devote so much of your time to excel in one subject. Just spread out all your time for all the subjects to get the bare minimum for each. So instead of trying for a 100 in science, try for 75 in all of them.
Gheres one problem. I'm completely inept at others tuff. This is exactly what the schools want us to do. It also the reason there are so few people excelling at stuff we can't concentrate becuase our effort is diluted. I have a friend who is a chem god (this ones not a typo) and he sucks at everything else except other science and math. He would make an excellent doctor, but he won't get into med school because of being unable to rember what Stalin and hitler did in what order. That a prerequisite of the prerequisite of the prerequisite of med school.
I wouldn't think the education is to blame. try the enormous, American pharmaceutical companies. in 4 regions of manchouria (North of China) there have been reports of curing cancer using natural remedies of dandelion tea. the cancer rates per capita between the US and the south eastern Asian countries are by far different. just saying, don't know if it's all proven to work, but I guess if the information ever did come out, our country would censor it anyways.
