Now I ask you to do the same with mine. Evaluate plese... :o
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Grades (marks) encourage students to learn. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
While studying in the universities, colleges or any other educational centres, we are trying to improve the level of our knowledge and to achieve success in it. There are many things that direct us as students and evaluate our abilities. The grades are one of these things. And I support the idea that they encourage students to learn.
The first reason for this is that grades give you the capability to win. For example, when I was studying in the university I needed to spend many hours to prepare myself for exams. The grades that I received came out as a result of my efforts. That is why if you justify hopes once you will have a power to win more and more.
The second reason for this is that grades also create good conditions for the students during their studies. For example, by receiving excellent grades and getting required credits we could make the academic period shorter. It also gives us an opportunity to save both time and finances. The other important fact is that grades help us to increase our degree and let us get benefits from it. For example, if you want to be an A-student and try to keep it by receiving good marks, you will be given such benefit as employment after graduation in the future or many other ones during whole educational period.
In conclusion, each of us wants to achieve his own goal in his life. And nothing could stop it if we really want it. Basically everything depends on us but the grades with good results always help us to believe in our power and give us a chance do it time and again.
