This last year of highschool is draining my time and strength
Today I'm really tired! '¬¬ The last year of high school is very important for every brazilian student who wants to get into a University. At the end of the year, we have to do the most important exam, the ENEM. It's a national exam that opens the doors to Universities. ENEM has 180 questions plus an essay. We have two days to complete it, four and a half hours on the first day, plus one hour on the second day (when the essay is due). Courses in Engineering, Medicine and Law are the most (concurred??) common. I hope to be approved in Computer Science. So, why am I tired?
Due to ENEM, private schools are tough in our last year. After all, they want good results to attract more students. I have, in addition to regular morning classes (7am to 12.50pm), afternoon classes on Mondays and Wednesdays and morning classes on Saturdays. Tests are made on Tuesdays. Today, I was at school from 7am to 12.50pm and from 3pm to 5.10pm. This Saturday I have to do a big exam that simulates ENEM. My school is part of an education network called COC, with about 450,000 students. Recently, it was acquired by the British company PEARSON. better -> COC was recently acquired by PEARSON, a British company.
Your English is excellent, Douglas! You are an amazing student.
