Friends and classmates, Geovanna Rodrigues, 18, and Fernanda de Paula, the same age, arrived early at the State University of Rio de Janeiro (Uerj), one of the venues of the National High School Exam (Enem) more moved from the capital of Rio de Janeiro.
“We arrived early to prevent, afraid of delaying. It’s better to wait here than at home,” said Fernanda, who considers taking the exam as a test, but intends to study psychology if she gets a place next year.
Geovanna says that the pandemic made it difficult for him to prepare for the Enem, because he says he believes that remote education had a lot of work and little learning.
“I tried to take a prep course, and I couldn’t balance it with the school”, she laments, who is in doubt between the veterinary medicine and literature courses.
A student at a traditional private school in Rio de Janeiro, José Carlos Pereira Junior, 16, also thinks that remote learning hindered his education and made him learn less. On the other hand, he remembers that the school had specific content for Enem. “At my school, we already have preparations for the test, such as writing classes and how to handle time, so this issue will be more relaxed. But in relation to the content, which is quite comprehensive, it will be more complicated”, says he, who wants to enter the higher level in the technology area.
Nathan Habib, 17, arrived at the test without deciding between studying tourism or journalism. He says that he took the Enem before to prepare, and says that the test also requires psychological preparation. “It’s a long test, with a lot of count and text. I did it and finished it ahead of schedule, but it gets tired. It’s a marathon”, he says, who also reports problems with remote learning.
“Everyone thought it would be good to study from home, but it wasn’t like that. Often, classes crashed, the internet was bad”.
The third attempt was made by pensioner Maria do Socorro de Carvalho, who was born in Ceará, moved to Rio and wants to study administration to fulfill an old dream. The only
“It’s not so much to look for a job”, says she, who often hears questions about why she wants to study. “Thank God I don’t need to work anymore. But I will fulfill a dream of having knowledge, and when someone asks me for help, I will be able to help”.
A group of young people also went to the door of UERJ with a poster in protest in defense of Enem and education. “For the right to study. Against censorship and the dismantling of Enem”, said the text, signed by the Juntos collective.
