    Isn’t the mass media that promotes the hysteria over this simple test with the use of words like “tension” and “excitement”? What is the tension and excitement all about? This test serves the purpose of determining which school children will get to go to. Am I to understand that that is the reason for the tension?

    One parent even took the whole absurdity to a new level by admitting that he prayed and fasted! So God will help his daughter to get into her preferred school. I think God would have a major problem if all the other parents also prayed.

    The whole point of having a brain is to think. I don’t think our people are using their brains a lot on this one.
