Recently, I heard that one of my friends wanted to change his major after one-year learning because he found that he had no interest and motivation in learning this major. From my point of view, it is not wise to change major halfway.
There are several disadvantages of changing major halfway. In the first place, changing major halfway means that we spend much time, energy and money in the last major but do not mastered the whole knowledge of that major yet. Second, changing major halfway needs a great resolution and we will face much pressure from others. Finally, changing major halfway may increase the burden of our family finance in that we need to spend another amount of money on another major. In addition, if we change our major halfway, we will lose a chance to find out our potential. Lack of persistence and willpower, we are difficult to be successful.
In short, it is not advocated that we change major halfway. Therefore, we had better take all aspects into consideration when we are choosing major so that we can avoid change major halfway. Once we choose a major, we should try our best to learn it better.
We live in a world full of competition, part of which includes examinations. Unfortunately, our fate and future are determined by it. We need to pass the College Entrance Exam to enter university; excel in interviews to obtain a job; pass the driving test to acquire a driver’s license. Examinations take place in everyday life of common people; hence we have got too accustomed to it to realize its negative side.
The facts speak for themselves that examinations have become a yardstick of success and failure in today’s society. Its efficiency of measurement may explain part of its popularity, but does it truly reflect a person’s ability and aptitude?
It is vital to make such a fact clear that examinations cannot test what we know, but what we remember. A student with a good memory may find it very effective to cram all the knowledge into mind before examinations. In this sense, it is very unfair for the students who work hard all the time. Since no one performs at his best all the time, examinees are no exceptions. Some unexpected accidents happened to them like a sudden headache will affect the outcome, thus fail the student.
I would like to put forward my heart-felt proposal that one day some more scientific and humanized method will replace the old tradition. With efforts from educationists and other related professionals, hopefully, it will not remain a dream only.
