外文标题：Indians put in 1-4 hours a week for GRE, Chinese 20
MUMBAI: Most Indian students preparing for GRE study for one to four hours a week, when their Chinese counterparts put in over 20 hours. While Indians prefer studying late at night, students in China choose weekday evenings. Such trends were revealed by a study conducted by the Education Testing Services, which surveyed nearly 20,000 GRE applicants across the world.
While Indian students and their counterparts in the US, China and other regions in the world share certain routines, there are some noteworthy differences as well. Most Indian students, 44.1% of them, seem to prepare for the test for one to three months, but the world average of such students is much lower at 37.8%. Chinese pupils, around 36% of them, study over 20 hours a week, while around 30% Indians, those putting in the longest hours, put in only one to four hours a week.
According to Association of Indian Management Schools president Apoorva Palkar, in any competitive exam, students are evaluated on their ability to respond on the spot. "It is also driven by the basic education system in the country. Chinese candidates have to invest more time and efforts in learning the language, while Indians have an advantage there," said Palkar. One cannot decide a student's competence level based on the time spent in studying, one just need to learn the right math and logic at school to be good, she added.
Indians are diligent and hardworking-just give them their due at home, let fairness prevail and see what they (our students) are capable of.
India rocks because Indian students outdo others despite all odds- abroad and at home. We just fail to acknowledge our true worth
That is because Khangress propoganda has made Indians to put in 20 hours to worship the fake gandhis.
This is because Chinese are known to be masters of English. Just talk to one of them and you will verify my statement. LOL !!!
Our kids prepare from nursery to go abroad and that makes lot of difference !
That just shows Indians have a better grasp of the GRE material probably due to a language advantage.
