That's not just it. This kind of competition has ignore other elements that are important in creating a useful workforce. We just compete, and strive for the examination, and then we are proud of how many A's we have. What a stupid kind of proud, when we have a freaking amount of A's but we have lack of soft skills.
We ignore the soft skill competition. Our mom wants us to get all A's. Our teachers want ys to get all A's. The society wants us to get all A's. But no one want us to be a useful Malaysian that can talk, street smart and independent.
ask your heart! what u want u will get that.
