GUY PSLE FAIL, N-LEVEL FAIL, ITE NITEC ALSO FAIL – “I FEEL SO LOST, HOW TO GO THROUGH LIFE”

How do you go through life as a person who isn’t academically inclined?

Advertisements

Been failing my whole life.

Got a shitty psle score, went into Normal Academic

Got a really bad N level grade

Did really bad for ITE in both Nitec and Higher Nitec

I’m in a part-time course in poly and its not looking so good either

I don’t really know what my options are with navigating life and I feel so trapped and lost

Netizens’ comments

  • Not everyone is paper smart, some are more hands on street smart ppl.
    Find what you’re good at and use that to your advantage.
  • It’s about self-awareness first. Are you not “academically inclined” because of:
    Too dumb to understand the academic content
    Bad familial and social environment
    Lazy/unmotivated about life in general
    If it’s the first 2 then there is still hope for you. If it’s the last one then you’re screwed.
  • What is something that you enjoy doing? Something that interests you, energizes you, makes you feel happy doing, something you’re passionate about.
    There’re always tonnes of possibilities to be in a field that you love that generates income, if you hang on to the determination to find that possibility and believe there’s something out there for you. Don’t give up OP, give yourself a chance to try all sorts of opportunities. You are definitely made for something that you’re gonna be good at.
  • I understand your feelings, but just because you aren’t “academically inclined” (I say this with inverted commas cuz tbh I feel the education system doesn’t cater to everyone well), doesn’t mean you are screwed for life. There is always a way to navigate thru life, you will find it. I believe in you.
    Are there things you enjoy doing? Activities that you can do with confidence yet learn something new and the time just flies by super quick? Maybe that’s where your niche lies. Maybe you could take baby steps by doing some part time work/internships in this niche? Or take a free online course to learn more about it.
    Also, not sure if relevant, but don’t compare yourself to others. You go at your own journey. There is nothing right or wrong in that.
  • like many have said, grades isn’t everything. but at the same time, i can’t help but think you didn’t try hard enough. nobody is born stupid (less those with mental disabilities, bless them), singapore’s education system may not be perfect, but i think it’s one of the best you can get in terms of “level playing field”. till you decide to buck up and work harder – be it in sch now or when you are at work, your chance at success is getting slimmer as days past. only you know yourself what you can do better kid. be honest to yourself, nobody owes u anything. just don’t regret later on. all the best.
