Some people believe that universities should only accept students with the highest marks while others believe that some students with low marks should have an opportunity. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

While
some tend to argue that
universities
should only consent
students
with outstanding academic performances, others claim that equal opportunity must be given to
students
attaining low marks in academics as well. The essay will examine the background behind the phenomenon, as I strongly believe that
students
must be given the chance to enrol at
universities
despite their poor conduct because today's World has given significant importance to educational hubs not just for recognition of academic merits but for the quality of education delivered to all
students
without divergence. Most
universities
have their own average threshold to consider before registering a student at their institution
such
as previous academic certificates, and language test reports and even require work experience at masters level programmes. Some might be able to retain all these, owing to the high intellectual capacity or quotient they possess but, it is crucial to admire
students
who are failing but desperately never stops chasing their dreams. Not everyone can have sound educational and social surroundings, some
students
who have the worst results have gone on to win World racing championships, art competitions, and singing contests and are titled to become World's most influential and inspiring characters.
In other words
,
students
who have low results should either have a hidden talent for improvisation and debates which most
students
with academic excellence do not. So it is important that
universities
should not solely consider profits and get the best
students
out but
instead
aid to carve them in, by identifying that each individual is distinct.
Also
, if
universities
were able to conduct a background check on the student's performances, they might identify that the majority of the
students
in middle-income level families have other commitments apart from their education as well.
Although
this
trend is not popular in American or British culture, it is very common in developing countries
such
as India and Nepal.
Students
have to look for their own siblings from a very young age as both parents are committed to their jobs, or either of their parents is sick, disabled or even dead. These types of
students
are struggling more financially and the onus is on the
universities
to help them and guide them giving necessary support. If
this
was conducted as a practice, many
universities
might be an ideal place not only to get higher grades but to acquire a lot of humanity and sensitivity involved. In conclusion,
students
must be given the chance to join
universities
in spite of obtaining low marks, as the cause will have an immense benefit for the entire humanity and the role of education might be more meaningful than ever.

Word Count

IELTS says that you should write a minimum of 250 words in writing task 2. If you go under word count you will lose marks in task response.

A very long essay will not give you a higher band score.

Aim for between 260 to 290 words in writing task 2. This will ensure a concise essay and will be realistic in terms of time management. You have only 40 minutes to write the essay and you need around 10 minutes of planning time, so you will not be able to write a long essay in 30 minutes.
