Some people do not go directly to college but travel or work for a short time. Do you think this has more advantages or disadvantages for their studies

It is true that some students who finish
high-school
a public secondary school usually including grades 9 through 12
highschool
opt to
work
or
travel
for a period before they start
university
. While I accept that there are benefits and drawbacks of
this
decision in terms of their studies, I would argue that it is better to take a year out to
work
or
travel
. On the one hand, the option to get a job or
travel
straight after school is disadvantageous to some extent. Considered only from
the perspective of
Suggestion
the study of perspective
study
, taking a break may result in some school leavers dropping out of academic life before they have even started, having no
study
or career ambitions. Even those students who do return after a period to take up a
university
place may face problems. The discipline of regular
study
habits is very different from the routine of a temporary job or carefree backpacking, and it could prove difficult to recover those habits and avoid falling behind with their
university
studies.
On the other hand
, students who choose to
work
or
travel
for a year after
high-school
a public secondary school usually including grades 9 through 12

usually find
this
an excellent preparation for the
study
demands of a
university
course.
Firstly
, sitting exams at school for

entrance is
exhausing

exhausting
and stressful. A complete break for a short period is invaluable to return refreshed and ready for the challenges of a
university
course.
Secondly
, by spending a year or so working or travelling,
high-school
a public secondary school usually including grades 9 through 12
highschool
students learn to become more independent, they widen their horizons and
subsequently
adapt to their
university
courses as more autonomous learners. No longer studying under constant supervision, they are better prepared to rely on their own, more mature judgment and self-discipline. In conclusion, I believe that the advantages of enjoying a short break to
work
or
travel
before entering
university
outweigh the disadvantages.
