Man, 24, China: "Cheated of the best things in college life"


I am a graduate student from a southern city in China. My name is Naiwen. For many students in China, university means nothing but a certificate which helps them to find a job. Sometimes I just cannot figure out why in China the value of a college student is so cheap.

I took the postgraduate qualifing examination to live up to my dream. The score was pretty good, but not enough to help me achieve my goal. In China, the second is as bad as the last one -- only the strongest survive. I have been cheated of the best things in college life.

A bitter sorrow and grief. The self-confidence is none. I just need help.
