Question 14 IELTS University students should be required to attend classes...

Question 14 IELTS

Some people believe that university students should be required to attend classes. Others believe that going to classes should be optional for students. Which point of view do you agree with? Use specific reasons and details to explain your answer.


The aim of going to school is to get knowledge. In the same way, students also attend a club, or other activities. Although these activities are important, I personally believe that students should attend classes. We should take it into consideration that students go to school in (for) classes. I will write three reasons why students should attend classes.

The first reason is that universities give knowledge to students in their classes. Students enroll classes to absorb the knowledge of their favorate field. Why do they enroll classes (them), unless they like to study? Going to school is waste of time for them. They can do anything they want instead of going to school. Also, students belong to a department, and have a program to graduate from the university. Therefore, they have to attend classes to finish the program. Programs should include classes that the students have to struggle. To offer good classes is also a responsibility for every university.

The second reason is that students pay much money for classes. For example, I know how much it is per a unit in a university. The cost of a unit is $650. Usually, one class consists of three units. Thus, to take one class costs $1950. I can not think that attending classes is optional when considering the payment. Education is expensive for people.

The third reason is that attending classes is useful for students after graduate. When students attend classes every day, they feel tired. Especially, a Monday morning class makes us feel gloomy. However, when we get out to the practical society, we can not say we are tired. We can not get the (take a) day off even if it is Monday. In stead of that, we have to work. Attending classes tells us that taking part in every time is important.

Therefore, I believe that attending classes is duty of students. They have to prior classes to other activities. It makes them benefits someday in their life.
