failing to meet the requirement of universities

terrible consequences

CONCLUSION:

Restate your argument or side.

SAMPLE ANSWER:

Nowadays, it is common for students at university or college to work part-time to supplement their expenses or gain some work experience. In my opinion, it is advantageous to students in many ways.

The first obvious advantage is that work can bring in money. In many countries, students are independent of their families, or their parents are not wealthy enough to afford their education. Therefore, a part-time job can significantly improve the financial position of a student. It may be an essential factor in continuing studies. For example, in Britain, the tuition fees have increased a lot in recent years, which has kept some of the intelligent but needy students from concentrating on their study as they are often in debt and a severe shortage of financial support. So, if they want to pursue their desired course, many students have no choice but to work in addition to their academic duties.

Moreover, a part-time job can help prepare a person for the real world of work, a step out of the ivory tower. Recently, many employers complain that new workers do not appreciate the needs of the business, nor do they apply their theoretical study to practice. But some work experience gained during study can help when joining work. My own experience is an excellent example in this case. Thanks to my experience of working as a part-time computer programmer, I was able to adjust to full-time work responsibilities in an IT company after graduation.

However, it should be borne in mind that the primary purpose of university study is to concentrate on academics. Students who also work during that period may be unable to devote themselves to study. Many universities have seen an alarming rate of students failing to meet the requirements of the universities, in attendance and performance on assignments or exams. Those students who work will likely have more difficulty in passing their courses, which will have terrible consequences.

But, in my opinion, taking up a part-time job while studying is advantageous for the student in many ways.
