Kumar S
Q. Dear Mr. Rahul Bhattacharya. I am so glad to read your student experience in the UK. I myself have been a student in UK. I understand and appreciate that you had a wonderful experience as s student in UK because you were lucky. However, please do not go ga ga over UK Education as you have no idea about any other university but only one - where you studied. UK IT Education system is crap and this is an open secret. So, thank god that u had a nice experience in UK but do not ever generalise anything about UK or it's education system because your knowledge is limited to only 1 university & town.
Kumar S:  A. Quite right. The grass is definitely not green on the other side. more
