The best thing the Pakistani schooling system teaches you is cramming for a test. With once a year finals that really matter and numerous practice tests, exams and previous year problem solutions, all the students know is that two days before if you do all that is in the solution manual, you will get a decent grade. This is very different than the semester system where you have to be constantly on your guard. Now, that I have gone through several years of semester education I still feel that the start of the semester is just time to relax and take it easy; this rosy dilution continues until things go out of hand and then chaos follows. One would think that I should have learned my lesson by now but nooo, I am too thick for that.
