  • Why is English given such an important place in competitive exams?

    Many colleges and universities conduct entrance exams before admitting students into their institution. I have wondered why a good understanding of the English language is so crucial in these exams. Take for example the Gradate Recognition Examination (GRE), an exam an aspirant has to clear, before he can start studying in the US. The exam focuses so much on English comprehension and vocabulary. (Of course, it does include tests of math and reasoning abilities too) But English occupies such a central role. Also, I notice that the words used to test vocabulary are not so common-place, if not altogether obsolete. Why is it important for me to know words like 'recant', 'upbraid' and 'ameliorate' which I have never till now and probably never will.* A thought comes to mind: How many of these words figure in President Obama's day-to-day conversations or speeches? * - abominate, inveterate, orotund, scurrilous, fulmination, distend... the list goes on. Surely, pulling out a list of vague words from the dictionary, cannot be a test of the applicant's overall competence. This is especially true in this age of globalisation where the trend is towards simplifying the language more so that people can communicate more easily. Is it merely to filter the huge number of applications so that only a few manage to qualfy? What other purpose does it solve?

    I am 39 weeks pregnant and I know its pretty normal to feel like this towards the end, but I don’t think my little boy is ever going to want to come out! I haven’t really been getting many more contractions than normal, just some extra cm lately. I've been dilated to 1cm & 75% effaced for 2+ weeks. I'm definitely not complaining cause I actually think I feel “too good” to only have 6 days to go till my due date, but I really think he’d stay in there a few more weeks if he could. I am positive my due date is correct since I know the exact day I ovulated. Anyone else feel like their baby was content at staying put? Did you have to be induced or did you finally go into labor, and were you late, on time, or early? Thanks!

    I'm currently a third-year public health major at a fairly prestigious school. I came in as a comp sci major, then switched to chemistry my sophomore year, then switched to public health at the beginning of this year. Looking back I don't know if my switching majors at the end of freshman year was due to depression. I felt like I was not smart enough or hardworking enough. I felt isolated, and I was not used to taking initiative. Maybe I was just too lazy. I'm beginning to wonder if the $30,000 tuition (in-state too) is worth it, when I could be going to a college close to home for $5000. I feel like I'm not getting enough out of my education (not only grade-wise). I wonder why I didn't transfer after failing all my spring frosh classes. I don't know if it's that I'm just in a funk, or if it's the fact that I'm not passionate about college. I've begun to turn to music to try to inject some happiness into my life, but it's not working, since I neglect my schoolwork then I feel guilty.

    the expression is sin^4x well i know that i can split this term in to two parts (sin^2 x)(sin^2 x) then [(1-cos2x)/2][(1-cos2x)/2] so i get (1-2cosx + cos^2x)/4 then i use the lowering power formula and (1/4) - (cosx/2)+ 1/8(1+cos2x) now this is where the problem pops up. the answer at the back of the book is 1/2(3/4 -... show more

But if i transfer, the degree plan at the new school is a lot harder, and my spring and summer semesters would be spent doing nothing but studying and trying to catch up (imagine Chem, microbiology, physiology, microeconomics and food prep all in the same semester, and something similar for the summer). If I don't make friends at the new school... then I won't even have my bf to hang out with there. At the school I'm at now, I'm absolutely miserable. Please help! I don't know what to do.

    My boyfriend and I recently moved in together. We are both going to school--I am taking master's level classes, and he is working towards a bachelor's in pre-med. I work in addition to class. He receives money monthly from a state fund which helps the children of war veterans go to school, and so he doesn't work. The problem is, the check only covers his most basic of living expenses... which means I get stuck with paying for not only my portion of our bills, but all the "incidentals" every month. We've fought several times about his refusing to get even part-time work, and I just don't know how to handle it. I can't afford to keep paying for myself and him, and I'm starting to get really angry that he refuses to work. How should I handle this? If I bring up his lack of a job, we fight. If I politely mention places that are hiring, we fight. If I ignore the situation, we don't fight but I'm angry and broke...
