In this information age, computers play an integral part in our lives. Opinion are divided regarding whether we should introduced this useful gadgets into school systems or not. While many people think the introduction of computers in classroom has some certain downsides for the students, I firmly believe that computer is beneficial for both teachers and learners due to their helpful programs and the ability to access to the Internet of them.

On the one hand, using computer in classroom can spoil the students. Once some students find out the massive amount of material that exists on the internet, they may plagiarise the work of other people there and hand in that work to their lecturers. This action can benefits them in the short term, in the form of flying marks, but show opposite impacts in the long term. Depending on the work of other people brings in its wake the lack of creativity and analytical skills in these students, therefore they will not achieve anything despite going to schools for a long time.

On the other hand, computers brings about many advantages in academic environment. First, teachers can use the computers and their programs to deliver the lessons better. Many office applications, such as Power Point and Words, allow teachers to illustrate the lesson in a more interesting way, which can spark interests among students, thus, make them learn better and remember more effectively. Second, despite several disadvantages relating to plagiarism, Internet is a powerful place to gain deeper insight for the students. The wide variety of sources in the internet can do wonder to the academic performances of students since they can expose to many things, which do not convered in the books, and gain a lot of experiences from the formers.

In conclusion, although computers may result in the dependence of the students, I think that applying computers in school can enhance the quality of teaching in schools, as well as bring about the betterment in studying to students.

You wrote over 330 words. The minimum is 250. You will not lose points simply for writing more; however, longer essays generally do not get high scores. There are many reasons.

First, the longer the essay, the more chances you have to make errors, and you will lose points for each of those errors.

Second, your writing may be repetitious and wordy. This will cost you points in task completion or coherence and cohesion.

Third, you will likely stray off-topic, and examiners will deduct points if you are not focused on the topic. You will also be tempted to use weak or unsound arguments or even contradict yourself. Develop just two or three argument points with examples.

Fourth, you will take a lot of time writing, and not have time left over to proofread your essay. You will miss the silly mistakes, and that lowers your score.

Fifth, you will not have enough time to spend on Task 1, and get a lower score there.

Aim to write around 270 words for Task 2. Practice writing a lot of essays so you get a feeling for the length.
