    Y'all, I always remind my students and tell them that they shouldn't stress themselves out if they don't excel in some tests because there's this thing that we call Multiple Intelligence. Buuut that doesn't mean you shouldn't give your best. You'll always know what you're really good at if you give 100% effort and you'll never have regrets because you tried your best. Aaannd just because you're not good at one thing, doesn't mean you're not good at anything. This is just a process of knowing yourself more.

    The education system in America looks so much easier than here in the UK. I guess our equivalent to SATs are GCSEs, which go from year 10-11. Then straight after that you’re thrown into A Levels, which effects massively what university you go to.

  • Rachel Sciarillo
    Rachel Sciarillo 26 days ago

    They really NEED to get rid of the SAT! It was legit torture for me. I’m a great student but just couldn’t sit through the SAT without going absolutely crazy. Everyone learns differently and excels in different aspects. It’s extremely unfair to basically say to kids that some kids are “better” than other kids and deserve to go to a better school because of a test score.

    I think not getting burned out while studying helps get good scores in any test. We had this stupid test in Florida in H.S. called the FCAT, (Math and English) which I studied for maybe a couple of hours the day before, and I passed with really good scores--mind you, in my opinion, it wasn't a very hard test, but I still knew kids who failed it--Anyhow. My point is that overdoing it and freaking out can affect your ability to take a test.

  • Sabrina Tatalias
    Sabrina Tatalias 26 days ago

    I mean honestly, a lot of colleges anymore don't "just look at SAT. Mine wasnt the best, but my GPA was like a 4.5 so my school bumped up my academic aide. Dont let a score on a test diminish your motivation or aspirations for school. Its not about the score at the end of the day, more people just care about the work you do and what you participate in too

      As Ned very aptly stated on their podcast, you can be a comedian with a chemistry degree, but you can't be a chemist witha degree in comedy. So it was very wise of him to graduate with a chemistry degree and get some experience in the field before going to buzzfeed.

    Maths isn't exactly useless. It helps develope a part of your brain that is crucial to logic and problem solving. Think of it this way: doing a sprint on a treadmill is beneficial to your health and to keep fit but how often in your life to you actully need to go into a full blown sprint. Athletes do it all the time but a common everyman doesn't have a reason to run at all. Same is with the brain and maths. You may not use it every day (or at all) but it good for ya.

      quirk1b4a THE most important thing in life is experience. There are plenty of people working BigLaw (what I want to do) who went to law schools that aren’t even in the top 100 (school rank is VERY important for getting your first job as a lawyer, but it’s also not the top determinant- that would be class rank)

    • quirk1b4a
      quirk1b4a 17 days ago

      +Jenny Matthews Yes!! I figured out that although as a high schooler the university I will be attending seems like it will define me and the quality of my career forever, it's very likely that those who may not necessarily attend a prestigious school could be the ones succeeding. (Probably shouldn't be saying this - I'm happy yet slightly terrified and numbed to say Columbia has (most likely hesitantly) thrown me a bone. The whole thing about 'cheapness' has been forcibly removed from my word bank yikes) But I've decided to work hard and hope that one day it'll pay off.
      And I love how even if people are like "Why did Ned end up in Buzzfeed after Yale", Ned's probably the person happiest in his career in his graduating class. NAMES DON'T DEFINE EVERYTHING Y'ALL

      Yale is overpriced and Harvard is so much better anyway (I bleed crimson lmao and I’m hoping to maybe get a doctorate of law from Harvard in a few years, so know that there is some bias in this 😂)
      But also, look at where the other guys went!! Keith went to Iowa State, Eugene went to USC, and I believe that Zach went to Emerson- which is a good school, but I believe that USC is ranked way above it.
      My point is, where you go to college in no way effects what your life is like. My mum earned a MechE degree from a very non-prestigious school in the UK and is currently a pre-cal teacher. One of her old coworkers went to Harvard for her undergrad and got a masters and a doctorate from UT Austin. Out of the two of them, my mum is by FAR the better teacher. When you go to those Ivy League schools, you’re mainly paying for a name and getting your foot in because of other people’s misconceptions of what the school is like (I can’t speak TOO hypocritically about this phenomenon, though, as I go to UT Austin. I’m going to be benefiting from this for the rest of my life). Look up the “public Ivies” and apply to one of them!! Same (if not better) quality education, for a much cheaper price- if you’re paying in-state tuition, that is

    I feel like a point is being missed in this video. In many places in the US, the ACT/SAT DOES determine your future. For a lot of students its the difference between going to a university or going to a community college. Or being able to afford school at all. In the US, if you dont have a college education, you cant work most jobs that pay enough to survive on. I appreciate that people are trying to be positive and say "the score doesnt determine worth", but it does. Because when I studied with a learning disability for months for a test that was designed for someone like me to fail on, I was rejected to almost every school I applied. Luckily im in the arts, so I found a college/conservatory that bases its acceptances on auditions. But I know many people like myself who will never be able to afford school now. Thats the reality of the school system here.
