1. What do you think is the biggest challenge for university students and why? Give details and examples to support your response.
One of the biggest challenges for students in university is getting used to college life during their first year. Students have a lot more independence in university and a lot find it hard to adjust to. In high school, even if you lived in a dorm, you were always told by the teachers or your parents what you should being doing. “Get up early in the morning,” “make sure you eat your lunch,” “after classes you have study hall,” everybody in bed by 22:30.” However at university, your mom isn’t there to tell you what to do. When I first came to college, I missed several morning classes because I was not used to getting up on my own. Also at university there is nobody to tell you to stop playing computer games.

2. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: In order to be successful, a person must have a university degree? Giv
e details and examples in your response.
While there are some exceptions, like Steven Jobs, I think that for most people to be successful, they must have a college degree. Today’s society is rapidly advancing and education is a big part of this development. The economic situation has made it harder to find jobs. When you apply for a job, you have to compete with many other people. Having a university degree helps set you apart from the other people. My brother put off going to university for a few years, and he had a really hard time finding a job. He then went back to finish his degree, and is now a successful manager of a large store. A university education also helps prepare you for a more successful career. You will not find a person with a bachelor’s degree working as a store clerk, for example.
