Everyone should stay at school until 18. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

It is true that some commentators argue that each child should stay on at
school
until they are 18. I completely agree with
this
point of view. There are several reasons why some people believe that youngsters should quit
school
.
Firstly
,
instead
of pursuing higher education at university or college, some people only want to follow vocational courses to enter trades
such
as electricians and plumbers or professions
such
as nursing. Since, there is an imbalance in the economy, resulting in graduate unemployment.

, if they maintain to study at

school
. In conclusion, I concur with those who argue that everyone should continue their studies until they are 18 years old.

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
