    Oh man that's funny because it's so true. Meanwhile I was offered a place at a university I forgot I’d even applied to. As a part of their enrollment process every student has to sit a literacy exam... stupid because most applicants have only just sat their university entrance exams (English is compulsory) and those who haven't just sat that have been in another university and are likely to be post-graduates. Kinda sad that they accept you then want you to sit another exam, I wonder if the offer is revoked if you bomb out in that exam.

    Another reason why we need to remove most sports from schools. There are other countries that do not pay the amount of attention we do on high school football and get better scores.
