What's the difference between ''must'' and ''had better''? (There is no context on my mind, just want to know the difference). Thank you.

    As you know, Ali, we can answer specific questions about a word or phrase in a sentence, given context and source. We can't respond to open-ended questions about grammar and usage. Please either use one of your words/phrases in a sentence and ask about it, or use the resources in the WR dictionary, including the "in context" links, to give you the information you need.

    You must go to school = You have no choice; you are required to go to school.

    You had better go to school = It would be a very, very good idea for you to go to school.
