Hello once again everyone, it’s just your buddy FAFI with another story about Filipino ignorance, based on my true experiences in the land where WORDS contradict ACTIONS. Well, I am finally deciding to post this story since I am already getting personal demands about it. Unfortunately, I will not be able to provide the video I intended to use with this article for the sake of my anonymity and security, but I am more than willing to share this video, which I had personally taken, with you all by uploading it on a later date on youtube.
We are all aware of the behavior patterns of Filipinos. Always late, hard-headed, disrespectful, me-first attitude, crab mentality, psycho-religious, and they naturally take shortcuts (cheats) for their own personal benefit. Well I had confirmed that most of these aspects are also present in their schools, specifically, their college. The Filipinos that we encounter on a daily basis had most likely inherited these traits from school.
First, let me touch on the difficulty level.
Most Filipinos starts college around the young age of 16, a little early for college don’t you think? If you ask me, I would suggest that they wait until they are at least 25, because they are not mature enough to take college as seriously as the rest of the world.
They have a huge curve in their grading system that makes it nearly IMPOSSIBLE to fail. There is a minimum grade of 60%, which is the lowest possible grade you can achieve if you did NOTHING at all and did everything possible to fail, you will still get 60%. They don’t believe in 0% as their minimum cut-off grade. Gaining that extra 15% doesn’t require much effort since you only need 75% to pass most subjects.
Obviously most of the material I learned in high school are being repeated in the colleges here. We are still going over ‘Stem’ and ‘Leaf’ plots in Math, and learning ‘nouns, adjectives, and verbs in English.
There are useless courses that counts as college credits which has nothing to do with your academic studies. Such as Physical Education, and Social Orientation. The orientation is nothing more than just a session of socializing, and performing kiddy projects which is worth 1 credit, but is a mandatory subject for each semester (at least at my school it is). P.E. would normally consist of swimming, dancing, or doing karate, and somehow they think that will help them in their field of study.
Other Factors that makes it dummy-proof
Integrity is a rare or non-existent trait amongst most Filipinos, and same with Filipino students. Students openly cheat on exams, tests, and quizzes, and the professor allows it (I have video proof of this). Some professors openly allow it, and some would indirectly allow it by pretending to be busy making a phone call, or stepping out of the classroom during an exam and trusting them not to cheat, which they will. At the end, nothing is done about it. It’s frustration to spend hours studying for a test, when Filipinos just gets it easy by cheating. It’s their rules, their country, and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it.
We know that Filipinos have a holiday for almost EVERYTHING. A day off from school at least 3 times a month commonly happens because of some religious holiday, it’s some VIP’s birthday, or rainy days. Sometimes we get days off for no apparent reason at all.
Integrity Strikes Again! It’s common for lazy professors to not grade their own test papers here. In most cases at the end of a quiz or exam, students would correct each others test paper. Now we can already assume what happens there. There are too many opportunities to get whatever score you want at that point. Either your buddy gives you a perfect score, or if he doesn’t do it for you, sometimes I catch a student altering his score after the corrections and before giving their score to the teacher.
With all that said, it seems like colleges here would have a 100% passing rate….. WRONG! There are a few factors that does make it slightly difficult, but these factors shouldn’t be existent in the first place. Here are a few below.
Students behaving like circus animals in the classroom and disrupting the peace is very common here. There have been times where I couldn’t hear the lesson or assignment being delivered due to the Filipino’s inability to shut the fuck up while the professor is talking. They are extremely rude, and destroys any possibility for others to concentrate and focus. Therefore, I wasted my time in class. Teachers here are too damn chicken to kick a student out of class for this type of misbehavior, they just let it happen. This contributes to some of my failures. I have a video on their classroom behavior as well.
Teacher stupidity is another factor, but it’s rarely a problem. Being a Filipino and unable to foresee anything in the future, and have any remembrance of what they said in the past. They often fail to provide accurate information to the students by planning something that doesn’t happen, and giving out assignments that they forgotten to issue. There have been times where an assignment was issued, but since everyone is Filipino. the professor forgot about it, and sometimes the students forgot about it too. Me being the only one with the brain capacity to remember, I ACTUALLY do the assignment, but the day it was meant to be collected, nobody does it, and the teacher can’t recall assigning it. So I ended up wasting my time. Sometimes the students don’t hear the assignment because of their reckless noisiness, so I normally ask the professor to repeat what was said at the end of class. But I end up getting fucked anyway if I’m the ONLY one to do it.
I can’t possibly make any of this shit up in case there any Filipinos reading this. If you had visited my school, every word I had said will match the actions that I am speaking of, and it’s absolutely nerve-wrecking to deal with these idiots. On top of that, school rules that they ‘pretend’ to enforce, are never enforced. School uniforms, being late, and being absent. They ignore all that shit. I knew a student last year who did all that shit and still made it to the next year level. There is no classroom enforcement, most of the teachers are too lazy to discipline students, and they don’t give a shit about nothing else other than being present for their 90 minute period and getting paid for it. After that, it’s deuces for them! I can say a lot more about the education here, but I think that’s enough said there. Let it soak in.Published in
