Usually when I watch K-dramas, I’m expecting a rom-com fluff with some problematic but mostly cute elements. But when one of my friends told me about a drama called Skycastle (which received one of the highest ratings for any K-drama ever) that was not your generic rom-com but something much deeper, I was intrigued. Skycastle is a show about an elite society of doctors (all male) and their families whose only concern is to make sure their children follow in their footsteps and become doctors (sound familiar?) by getting them into the prestigious Seoul National University.
I extend my warmest congratulations on your recent SEE results. If you have achieved what you deserved, be happy. If you haven’t got good grades, do not worry. The result is not always in our hands. Needless to say that it is not the sole indicator of your performance. So, relax and don’t lose your hope that you are capable of so many other amazing things.

Quality education wasn’t my school’s strong suit. When the SLC exams came around, we were more interested in acquiring question papers from the teachers. They provided us with a list of expected questions and we worked on preparing answer chits for them. I think we spent around three months doing just that and studying very less. This is how I passed with second division. But this actually hampered my studies because when I came to Kathmandu and joined RR Campus, I found it difficult to study or perform well.
