During a recent interview, singerÂ IUÂ talked about her stance on pursuing further education.
She stated, â€œUp until my junior year of high school, I studied really hard. When I was in elementary and junior high school, I was class president a lot of the time. I really loved leadership. However, when I made my debut at the end of junior high school, my grades started slipping.â€
â€œI donâ€™t know if I really need to concentrate on my studies right now,â€ said IU.Â â€œI didnâ€™t take my college entrance exam this year because I have no plans for college at the moment.â€
She then continued, â€œOf course, some sort of common knowledge and understanding is important, but I donâ€™t feel the need to know math or science. Recently, Iâ€™ve been hooked on reading books. When Iâ€™m by myself, I usually read or write lyrics.â€
IU has deferred any commitments to enter college at this point in time, as sheâ€™ll be focusing on advancing her career.
