    'Muyiwa' is obviously a sexy name!

    @Vendak: I'm also glad that somebody at least follows their feelings. If some people don't want to move on to further education then they don't have to feel obliged to do it. The way universities are portrayed nowadays is that you go there for n years and come out being this smarter person. There's no mention of the hard work and dedication which I'm sure is involved when attending.

    I also think it's very unfair that sixth forms disregard people who don't want to go to universities because there are infinite reasons a that may affect a person and cause them not to go.

    @Kura: Your last sentence just summarised everything that I've been thinking when it comes to this subject. You don't need university to be successful (although it would be nice); just clear goals, realistic plans and - I'll add one more - motivation.

    @Scarf: That's a very good point that you made, however it still comes under the fact that you are motivated to learn so you will still do well in the universities, don't you think?

    I wanted to go to college because I wanted to learn more things. Didn't feel like I learned a whole lot in high school. I guess I also felt like it was just "the next thing to do" after high school, but I also wanted to prove to myself that I could actually do well in school.

    I think it's not just for the money.. but rather for the opportunity and to fulfill someone's goals. There's only so much you can learn in highschool.. and if you wanted to pursue any sort of skills trade or specific career goals you definitely need post education (uni or college.) Especially if you need certification for that job.

    Unfortunately, I believe that many people go to school to escape the realities of real life. Or just to cruise on by using school to scrape money from the government year after year.

    However, you can be successful without having to go to University or College, you just need to have clear goals in mind and a realistic plan to get there. An internship is also a good alternative to bridge that gap.

    Makes me glad I've decided not to go then!

    Apart from the pressure put on by family etc. colleges and schools put pressure on people as well. A lot of school sixth forms practically disregard you if you say you aren't going to uni; whilst my college isn't quite that bad, they still put a lot of emphasis on applying to uni and if you don't want to go you're just put in a corner and told to research on potential jobs.

    I actually know people who have been to university because they felt obliged to and only one out of the six I know stayed all the way; not to mention even the one who stayed all the way through said that he would have been better not going.
