Dear Dr. Helper,
I am a Senior 3 student. I am now in great need of your help because I can hardly stand the great pressure. The followings are our present situation.
We have to stay at school for more than nine hours to have lessons every day. What’s more, it takes us about three to four hours to finish the homework. In order to finish all the tasks from the teachers on time, sometimes I have to study late into the night but get up early in the morning. As a result, I don’t have enough sleep，let alone play sports and enjoy myself.
In my opinion, there are three causes leading to our overload. First of all, the exam pressure is heavy. Then, the homework is too much. Finally, the expectations from our parents are too high. We are often warned that if we didn’t try our best, we would not have the chance to go to university.
All in all, I would really appreciate it if you could give me some advice. I am looking forward to your reply.
