Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A question, Jerome. Is the ability to write (and/or argue) a persuasive and well-organized argument emphasized in the process? I think it is, judging from your writings.

Our (Japanese) education is somewhat similar in elitism, but emphasizes less on the development of thought, as opposed to writing a flawless conclusion, which must reflect the professor's preference. Math is also emphasized here as a college entrance requirement, but exams have been developed as an art of smelling, speculating and solving the intent of those who drafted questions, not as a tool of logical thinking. So are literature exams.

I will become a patissier, God willing.
