    • Minhee Kim
      Minhee Kim 14 hours ago +2

      And also some schools want their students to wear school uniforms at least when they're arriving to the school. Usually they go easy on students wearing other clothes than uniforms during the class because they're likely to stay all day in their classes on the same chair but again, it really depends

    • 리엄이
      리엄이 14 hours ago +9

      It’s nothing to do with “go easy on seniors” it’s just depends on what school you go to, lot of boarding school don’t have to wear uniforms but again, it’s just depends

    • 지HT
      지HT 16 hours ago +16

      Most schools do have rules forcing us to wear uniforms but teachers normally go easy on seniors because they’re under a lot of pressure and they practically spend the whole day studying and stuff..

    Korea is soo similar to India and many schools in US have 50 min classes and in US after classes many kids work part time jobs. if you take AP or advanced class in US, yeah you do have study real well to keep good grades

      I always take a quick shower every morning even during winter. Some people do and some people don’t. It might just be preference or what they used to. I live in japan and people tend to take baths at night or after work. Night baths is the norm.
