I agree that university is not the only way to enter life, but it's one of the best.
However, you're a Vietnamese, so I think you know that studying so hard in primary and secondary schools can't be advoided, because if the pupils don't do that, they can't be enter a good high schools or an good university, and it's the common circumstance.
I know many people are eager to change it, but it depends on the education policy of state, it means that this case won't be changed soon.
Moreover, in Vietnam, entering university can be considered the best and even the only, because of some following reasons:
Firstly, the matter of diploma is seen so high, it's the view of a country, many generations that's very difficult to change.
Secondly, the education in colleges, traning skills schools, etc, and the ability of solving unemployment is low. The education program can't meet the demand of the market and the trend of development.
Thirdly, you know, not almost family can let their children study abroad so that university is still their wish.
and many other reasons.
These above are my oppinions which can't be the same with you. I look forward to hearing your view.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! my fellow- country man
