It has been 8 days since the UN results were officially announced and it took me that long to ponder on the same old idea: Is the UN really effective?
And my conclusion has never changed until this very moment. It is NOT effective, period!
I have some schoolmates who didnt pass the test, though I dont really know them, just by name, I honestly feel sympathy for those guys. The thing is that, they're just the victims of the educational system in this nation. I couldn't make the point of what was on their (government) minds? Was it just the thought of being provoked by how our country lacks in its human resources? Or was it all just a gimmick, a bench mark to brag about?? I really can't find the answer.
What kind of government would make their own descents, their own future generation, some pre-occupational lab rats?
Ok, maybe I need to elaborate more on the reasons of why UN is highly uneffective in lieu of rambling.
- First, most of the students who didnt pass are fairly clever by the mean that they deserve to graduate according to the average marks they have achieved within the past three years. Maybe some of them are not really special, just another kid having 6 or 5 or 7 for their math exams, but hey, it happens to all of us too, doesn't it!?
- Second, the UN results are mostly NOT original, not genuine. Many students who used to slack around and are fairly less clever than the ones who failed, eventually passed the UN. Now, I personally feel so ashamed of the fact that I passed the UN and otherwise, many smarter students than I am didnt.
- Third, most of the Top 10s in many schools are just some lucky ones, OR the "luckily didnt get caught while sms-ing, cheating on the test" students. What a silly compensation of this tomfoolery: they get something they dont deserve.
- The last one is the most important one. It is unfair, the marks, they cant judge us on how well we do in school! They can't judge us even on how we are supposed to be called 'smart', 'cause the evidence is that obviously it is dysfunctional.
There are many reasons I can tell but it will take too long! It is just a peripheral thought of my center idea. So there are alot to say actually.
I can only hope that our government would consider this policy again, so they wouldnt repeat the same mistake for next year.
