When I was in India, I have heard lot of people going America for study. One of my cousins also came her for study. She told me that study in America and in India is so different. I was very eager to know about it. She told me the main difference is: The relationship between teacher and student, study policy, unity of students. To respect teachers is very important in India.
Students have to respect their teachers. When they attend school every student has to respect teachers by standing up. They are not allowed to argue with teachers. If they try to do argue with teachers then they must thrown out of the class or may be out of the school. While here in America students call their names and disrespect teachers. I like one thing most that here students has to change room to attend the classes but in India teachers has to change the room to teach the students which is very unhealthy for students.
Policies in Indian schools / collages are same for students. It is very unusual for Indian students to different policies from different professors. Policies like: Attendance policy, exam policy, grading policy. In America schools aren't strict for students. They can take as many leaves as they want. The Indian schools are very strict for teenage students.
The colleges are very smooth to go because no need to go to collage and here in America each and every day student have to attend collage. The Indian college has no policy for exam if one has missed the test then its all over. While in here everyone can get chance to make up the test. Unity of students is the most important. In collages students celebrate all the festival together with teachers. It is not important while celebrating that student is Hindu or Muslim or christen.
There is one more major difference between American students and Indian students that is fashion. Doing make up and dressing well is not allowed in schools or collages even some Indian schools aren't allowed girls to do nail polish because they thought that this fashion diverts student's mind into fashion instead of study. When I knew all those benefits of studying in America. Then I tried to come her for more study..
