1、Studying Abroad or Home
Nowadays, with the development of science and technology, more?and?more?people want to study abroad. There are students from colleges and universities, from the middle schools, from the primary schools, and people from all walks of life. What difference does it make?between studying abroad and studying home ?
Though many students are crazy about going abroad to pursue their higher education, I think studying home is preferable. For one thing, you don’t have to take foreign language tests such as TOEFL and GRE . This can save you a tremendous amount of time, money and effort, allowing much of your energy to be devoted to your academic foals. In addition, if you study home ,you can stay with your family and old friends. Meanwhile , while studying home ,you can enjoy the kind of intimate friendship and comfortable family atmosphere which you can only dream of in a foreign university , where you will be accompanied by your own shadow most of the time. For these reasons, pursuing one’s higher education at home is a more realistic and sensible choice.
In a word, I prefer to study home.
2、The Intensified Postgraduate Entrance Examination
It can be seen from the graph that there are more and more students attending the postgraduate entrance examination year by year. Compared with before, the rate of the student taking part in the postgraduate entrance examination becomes higher and higher. In the meanwhile, the admittance rate is also rising.
What are the reasons for this and the possible consequences? On the one hand, there are three reasons for this. First, the job market becomes more and more competitive. As a result, most people want to find or exchange for a better job by obtaining a high degree. Second, most college students want to pursue their study after their graduation from the undergraduate. Third, with the development the science and technology, what has been learned at college is not enough to meet the need of the society. On the other hand, there are some possible consequences of this. For one thing, most people will be force to pay more attention to the examination than to the improvement of their true ability. For another, it will have a negative effect not only on the individual but also on the society in the long run.
In my opinion, high degree doesn't necessarily mean high ability. It is important for us to pay more attention to the improvement of our abilities than to the examinations.
