Some people do not go directly to university or college but take a gap year. Do you think advantages outweigh disadvantages?


In recent years, students have a tendency to take a gap year before enrolling in a university or college. While having a year off may bring some disadvantages to young people, the pluses of this trend appear to be more significant.

On the one hand, it is believed that taking some time off from studying is associated with some shortcomings. It firstly affects their learning. After the gap year, many students confess that recalling knowledge which they acquired at school is an arduous task. As a result, they struggle to keep up with their peers, and then receive unsatisfactory results. Additionally, those at undergraduate level are likely to lose interest in studying, which leads to the fact that many students choose not to go back school after the year-off. Therefore, they may miss the chance of acquiring a degree at the university.

However, albeit the drawbacks, I firmly believe that taking a gap year has more noticeable benefits to students. The major one is that most of kids these days live the sheltered lives so some time off from school is going to be an opportunity for them to understand how the world actually functions. Students will have time to gain knowledge about different aspects of culture of other countries such as the cuisine or the long-standing customs. This means they will become more open-minded, and they will no longer hold prejudice against other regions. For example, if one kid spend time searching for information about the mountainous inhabitants, he will understand their lifestyles, their traditions, and there will be less misapprehension. Besides, some students have a choice of doing a part-time job, which helps them appreciate the value of money as they have to make effort to earn. For these reasons, a year off will be more a valuable experience than a distraction.

In conclusion, although having some time off is unhelpful on a few dimensions, the advantages of this trend are worth considering. It is recommended that students should take a gap year after finishing high school.

In recent years, Students High school graduates (If the people have left high school and are not in university, they are not students. A student is someone who is actively taking classes in a school.) have a tendency to take a gap year before enrolling in a university or college. While having a year off may bring some disadvantages to young people, the pluses of this decision trend (You are not going to write about the trend, but what happens to the person who makes the decision.) appear to be more significant.

On the one hand, it is believed that taking some time off from studying is associated with some shortcomings. It firstly affects their learning first. After the gap year, many students confess that they cannot recall recalling what they learned in high school knowledge (Knowledge is what you know. ) which they acquired at school is an arduous task. As a result, they struggle to keep up with their peers, and then receive unsatisfactory results. Additionally, they those at undergraduate level are likely to lose interest in studying, which leads to the fact that many students choose not to go back school after the year-off. Therefore, they may miss the chance of acquiring a university degree at the university.

However, albeit the drawbacks, I firmly believe that (You wrote your opinion in your thesis statement. Do not put your opinion in the body paragraphs. The body paragraphs are you supporting arguments.) taking a gap year has more noticeable benefits to students. The major one is that most young people of kids (ungrammatical, and "kids" is too casual) these days live the sheltered lives so some time off from school is going to be an opportunity for them to understand how the world actually functions. Students will have time to gain knowledge about different aspects of culture of other countries such as the cuisine or the traditions and long-standing customs. This means they will become more open-minded, and they will no longer hold prejudice against other cultures, races or nationalities. regions. For example, if one kid spend (wrong form) time searching for information about the mountainous (wrong usage) inhabitants of mountainous regions, he will understand their lifestyles, their traditions, and there will be less misapprehension. Besides, some students have a choice of doing a part-time job, (Why not a full-time job?) which helps them appreciate the value of money as they have to make effort to earn it. For these reasons, a year off will be more a valuable experience than a distraction.

In conclusion, although having some time off is unhelpful in some ways on a few dimensions, the advantages of this decision trend are worth considering. It is recommended that students should take a gap year after finishing high school. (The essay prompt did not ask you to give your recommendation. It only asked for the advantages and disadvantages. Avoid the temptation to go off-topic.)
