André Lipical’s daughter, 54 years old, started this Sunday (5) the marathon exams for the National High School Exam (Enem), in Florianópolis. Taking the exam marks the end of the student’s preparation, who prepared alone, according to her father. Her dream is to study medicine.
Another challenge for the family was the test location. They traveled around 170 kilometers from Urubici, in the mountains of Santa Catarina, to the capital to accompany her to the gate of the State Institute of Education (IEE).
“We came to give you a hug, a boost, you prepared yourself. This [primeiro dia de prova] It’s the easiest one, the next one is more difficult.”
André remembers that this is the second time his daughter has taken the Enem. A high school graduate, she tried for the first time in 2022, but without success.
For this year, she signed up for an online teaching platform and studied alone, dedicating herself fully to preparation.
“She’s a little nervous, she studied at home, she prepared herself in the best way possible”, she adds.
