Due to that, public universities are actually more respected than private universities


#1765

Hold up

You need to select your major by the time you take an entrance exam?

That’s awful


#1766

Anyway I did the national exam last year as a trainee and I’m still waiting results
I don’t expect to score above 700 because I barely studied at all and didn’t throw a random quote by a phillosopher/sociologist in the middle of my essay lol

Yep
The major is more important than the university here
Medicine is particularly infamous for having high standards


#1767

I strongly dislike the concept of entrance exams and am thankful that I do not live in a country that uses them.

And this is despite the fact that I’ve always been really good at taking standardized tests, so would probably benefit personally from being in such a system. It’s just a gross concept imo, and having general and repeatable standardized tests like those we have in the US is a much less harsh system.


#1768

Also picking a major at 17 with no college courses under your belt is gross


#1769

Same-ish
I actually can handle more than most people can in a shorter time, but start to get behind if there are more time since others will benefit more from it than me
So the less time I have to solve a question, the better
I usually take 1 minute to solve each and currently at the national exam we have 2 minutes to solve each


#1770

I have no frame of reference as to what kind of problems you’re solving lol

But good luck whenever you take the test and I pray you find a major that works for you (it is extremely common for students here to switch majors, and it’s not uncommon to switch multiple times)

The question specifically had internet strangeirisms taken to informal portuguese
they usually are verbs with a english word and -ar (the most famous of the 5 possible verb terminologies)
upar is to level up, grindar is to grind and so goes

But the neologisms on this question were SPECIFICALLY only used at LoL and one alternative mentioned Lolking.


#1779

Wait internment camps what


#1780

Oh wait

“internet terms” not “internment camps”

I can’t read


#1781

btw this was the minecraft question

had nothing to do with actual minecraft mechanically speaking but the flavor text was that they needed the perfect minecraft piece to finish their 4x4 block
