GRE Issue Essay Analysis
aaditya0893 posted a topic in GRE Analysis of an IssueHi Everyone, This is my first post on urch and I recently took my second GRE practice test. Please find below my issue essay question stem along with the response. Please rate my response and kindly highlight my improvement areas. Thanks in advance. Undergraduate students majoring in Business or in the Sciences should not be required to take any courses in the Humanities since those courses won’t benefit their future careers. Write a response to the prompt in which you discuss whether or not you agree or disagree. Be certain to fully develop your position and carefully consider ways in which your position could be challenged. A student always learns multiple things during the course of his/her education. Not everything is futile, and not everything is useful. Having a well rounded understanding of all topics can help students deliver better results in the long run. Hence, I disagree with the stance taken in the prompt about undergraduate students majoring in fields such as Business or Science to not take courses in other fields such as Humanities for primarily two reasons. To begin, education is something that can never be commensurated in terms of limit i.e. it is very rare for any field to be so niche that it deems knowledge gained in that field as sufficient. Over the years, we have observed multiple fields converging with each other to beget stupendous results. To illustrate this, we can take the example of the economics and finance that are a beautiful amalgation of mathematics /calculations and human elements that impact the imminent trends in the market. To estimate sales of a product, the company can have calculations based on statistical data that could determine what should be behavior of market in the upcoming months, but analyzing the confidence of people in the product and understanding the need of the hour for people can really help take the prediction to much higher levels of precision. Thus, based on the above argument, we can say that having knowledge of other fields can act as a boon. Further, having a wholistic approach and understanding of topics definitely helps people blur the lines and transition between fields on a need basis. An idea to support the argument would be to look at Elon Musk who is a perfect embodiment of science and humanitarian shades. He has a pioneer in the field of science and technology for a very long time and has benefitted the technology world with products and his companies such as PayPal, Tesla, SpaceX etc. But the vision that he carries to carry the human race to Mars in the upcoming years is only a testament to his humanitarian aspect that can truly be achieved if one delves deep into humanities along with science. Thus diving deeper proves beneficial in the long run and can be proved by many such examples. Having said that, there is another way to look at it by considering learning things apart from the field of specialization of the individual can turn him/her into "jack of all trades, master of none." This is obliquely possible, but on the contrary, a person who is focused on his field of specialization will definitely find it easier to accommodate the knowledge gained from other fields in a way that does not impact his/her current ability to master the desired field. In fact, an erudite person is expected to utilize the gained knowledge in his/her field to yield better results. To put it succintly, knowledge never goes in vain. To conclude the response, I would like to disagree with the argument and state with the help of the above given points that undergraduate students majoring in Business or in the Sciences should be required to take courses in other fields such as Humanities to help them benefit in the long run.

sahiljindal348 posted a topic in IntroductionsTopic Educators should find out what students want included in the curriculum and then offer it to them. Instruction Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position. Essay In a way to keep the students engaged in the curriculum which if, designed by keeping students' interests in mind, seems logically far better than the curriculum in which students’ opinions are not given careful considerations. To explain this, there are few points that will validate this approach. First, students will themselves take interest in the courses because these courses are well chosen by themselves. Things will not get boring with time, if they study the subjects of their own choice. For example, if a student wants to pursue his/her career in the field of medical science, then it would not be beneficial to force him to study the pesky English literature as well mathematics. Students will start to take interest more when they know that they can study what they want. They will definitely engage in exploring themselves that in what field they want to excel and from early age, their goal will remain focused. Likewise, for teachers it would become easier to understand what a student thinks about his/her own career. As extracurricular activities also play a major role in the whole curriculum, the students will find themselves engaging the activities they want to participate. A student would not be told to play the cricket just because it is an inseparable part of the curriculum, he/she might easily take part in swimming or the sport which they are proficient in. In contrast to all these, there are students who don't know what they are actually going to choose their career in. In that case also, it would be better, if a proper counselling is done for them. They would be told about the specifics of each course and what would it bear on their career so that they start choosing wisely. In conclusion, it would be beneficial for the students, if they are given the freedom to include the things, they want to be a part of their curriculum.

Ohileshwar posted a topic in GRE Analysis of an IssueQ) As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. Ans) Every generation of humans is better than their previous generation. Just like any other visceral skill, human intelligence surpasses its prior generation equivalent. As technology is progressing at a prolific rate, human tendency to over rely on technology is growing too, so much so that the employment of instincts and visualisation which is a part of human intelligence is diminishing in every generation. Upon graduating from primary school, the first and foremost technique taught to most students in any mathematically oriented course is to use and abuse the power of a calculator to solve questions. Even though the dexterity of using a calculator, especially in the commerce and statistics stream, cannot be stressed enough, nevertheless students tend to ignore the nuances that mathematics encapsulates and incessantly use a calculator to solve various rudimentary problems. The aforementioned approach is much more innocuous than it might seem at the first glance, as it would lead to students neglecting their instinct and visualization to arrive at the answer in contrast to laborious manual data entry. Arduous extra terrestrial activities such as rock climbing, hunting, paragliding is best learnt from experience than following an instruction manual available on the internet. In the recent issue of new york times, it was well documented that a novice rock climber named Richard Dunne failed to trust the veteran rock climbers purporting that he has watched a Youtube video teaching him all that he needs to know to perform the aforementioned task. Needless to say, his effort although reprimanded by bystanders lead to deleterious outcomes. Ultimately, if Richard stepped out of his bubble and thought for himself, the after effects of the task he is attempting perhaps the results could have been a lot more benevolent. With the recent advent of Google Maps, citizens of metropolitan cities could now easily reach their destinations with no prior knowledge of city roads. However the recent article on the new york times reported that a daily commuter named Ben Gibson rode over a children’s park because the application suggested the path was a shortcut. Over reliance on these services and not employing common sense would lead to cases like the aforementioned one. The usage of google maps is detrimental to the literarily deprived section of society who rely on critical thinking and directions obtained from conversation, as no one would remember the name of the street they visited few minutes ago. Ultimately, a proper balance between technology and common sense is crucial for the smooth functioning of all sections of society Even though one could argue that developing new technologies involves exorbitant amount of critical thinking, but if the outcome remains to curtail the human thought process, then such an effort would lead to no avail. All the aforementioned instances leads to the idea that the self thinking capacity of a human is deteriorating due to over reliability on new technologies.

adusuv posted a topic in GRE Analysis of an IssueA nation should require all of its students to study the same national curriculum until they enter college. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position. Essay : Education plays an important role in students life. The earliest education system to which one is introduced is school system. In schools the most prominent way of teaching students is to follow curriculum. These curriculums will guide the learning process of student. There might be different curriculums in a country but the studentswill be benifitted from same national curriculum until they enter college. Firstly, having same curriculum throughout the nation will give fair and equal chance for all the students in the nation. In countries like India, each state has its own curriculum. These curriculums are different in different aspects ranging from subjects to level of difficulty. If a student from a state wants to take national level entrance exam for prestigious institutions like IIT, then that student has to take extra coaching to cover the material which are not included in his curriculum. This gives a handicap to students who are not studying the same curriculum as others. So if there is a single curriculum at national level then every student will have equal opportunity and chance at these type of exams. In Second, having same curriculum throughout the nation will make easy for students to move from one state to other state of the country. If different states have different curriculums then the student who has moved to different state will have difficulty in adapting to new state's curriculum. In addition along with students, teachers can also move from one state to other and start continuing teaching without any additional training . If curriculums are different then the teachers needed to be trained for specific curriculum to teach.If teachers relocate to a new place with different curriculum then they might have to do additional training or they might lose their job. In countries like India where each state has its own language and culture, it is difficult to have single curriculum. In these states there are curriculums which are taught in their local languages and they can't be made national level curriculums as people speak and write different languages. In situations like these, having single curriculum for entire nation doesn't work . Even if the content of the subject is same and is taught in different languages it will be difficult to have same curriculum as local states include their own languages as part of curriculum. In conculsion, a nation should have same curriculum for all students until they enter college. Having same curriculum gives students equal chance to learn and grow. It will also help students to move to different parts of the country and continue their education with ease.In countries where it is not possible to have same national curriculum they should work towards establish some common ground to give fair chance for all of their students.
I will read anyone's in return. Topic: As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. STARTS HERE - Where would we be without technology? Some would argue that we are to technology dependent, from the normal calculator to relying on computer systems to track our finances but others would argue that technology has developed our culture into a new advanced age. In my view, technology enhances the individual, because the ability to think does not dwindle as the reliance on technology increases. The mind is a progressive tool that adapts to the changing environment. Those that would argue against the increased usage of technology might point to calculators in schools, or spell check on computers. These actions might be perceived as an individual dependence on technology but is it really? A calculator can do multiplication and division but can it solve multi variable equations? The student still needs to know how to setup the equation, what process to use, and the order it need be completed. The calculator is a stepping stool not a hinder to more sophisticated problems. Another example could be made of spell check on all computers and word processing programs. These options automatically correct spelling and grammar errors. This reliance does not deteriorate our ability to think for ourselves. It is a teaching method and if the mistake is continually being made will help reinforce the proper technique. Technology merely makes humans think more for themselves by increasing accurate information and making it easily accessible. Now consider the incentives, there’s the ability to access the internet from various devices such as a computer, phone, or multi media player allowing a person ultimate access to all sorts of information. Need scholarly material for a research project? Want to know the scores and stats of a game the previous night? Would like to read President Lincolns emancipation proclamation address? Surely, open your computer and you’ll have free reign at accessing these questions. These problems may have been answered had you gone to a library or read a newspaper however that would have taken up valuable resources. Both time and money was saved. Thus, allowing further opportunities. In conclusion, it is clear that relying on technology does not deteriorate our ability to solve problems. The increase in accuracy, accessibility, and resources permits us to go farther beyond our knowledge than we would be without the technology. Our human ability to solve problems still remains. If anything, technology has opened a door of unfathomable possibilities.
