Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? It is better to take the most difficult or challenging classes in college or at university even if it means that you probably will not get top grades (marks) in them.
Many students tend to choose easy courses in college because this choice enables them to have more spare time and get high grades easily. As far as I am concerned, I would rather opt for the most difficult and challenging classes even though I cannot get top grades in them.
We are living in an increasingly competitive world as the population
of whichhas exceeded 7 billion. Right from the moment of our birth, we have to compete for almost everything. No wonder that obtaining the access to the college is not an easy task. Given that we have fulfilled that arduous task, we should not indulge ourselves in comfort. It’s true that colleges provide a haven for students to get detached from the reality. However, life is much tougher outside the college and everyone has to leave the ivory tower. To survive in this highly competitive world, one has to equip oneself with the techniques necessary for future advancement. To acquire those techniques before entering the job market, one has to push oneself hard, i.e., challenge oneself.
Choosing easy classes may lead to high scores, but the student may have the illusion that success is not difficult to achieve and tend to be readily satisfied. In contrast, students who choose the most difficult classes have to work much harder to earn comparable scores, and in reality it is nothing else than the process of constantly pursuing brilliance that makes a person distinguished. Only when a person leaves his comfort zone can he make considerable progress. In other words, challenges are the best tool to fully fulfill one’s potential. We all witness
thatmost of the successful individuals embracing challenges and setting strict demands on themselves.
Furthermore, conquering challenging classes is best able to afford the student the sense of achievement. A person may not be satisfied with an easy job he has finished, but performing a difficult task requiring courage can be uplifting and build up the person’s self-confidence.
Finally, I would like to conclude my writing with a line in the renowned India movie “Three Idiots”: Follow excellence and success will chase you.
Help will be greatly appreciated : )
