I must say i am impressed with the work ethic and the rigor. But i am not sure if subjecting the young mind and body to this intense experience, is desirable and/or sustainable.

When i was in school in India, especially the all important 12th standard, i refused extra tuitions, reasoning that , i will score based on what i can learn by myself within reasonable hours. My wife did the same thing.

In any case, i have to admit that this extra preparation/classes can definitely add an edge in the intensive competitive school exams!. Not sure who is correct and who is not.

Wow! I'm exhausted just reading the post. Impressive economic results. Wondering if the results would be similar or better (on the entrance exam and the economy) if academic study was limited to 7:00 am - 6:30 pm vs. 7:00 am - 2:00 am. At some point it seems like there would be diminishing returns.
