2.3.1 University Admission - Sample

Many people dream to of live having a high standard of life living, by doing a highly paid and secured jobsand to get more respect in the community, so they are going to university more than in the past. But comparatively, thelife has become more hectic due to more stress and responsibilities.

Because of overpopulation and a few incidents like ’ Global Recession Period’, resulting in shortage of general job vacancies, most people agree that it’s better to go to for university studies and become highly qualified person. As a result, one can not only get a high level job post but also earn enough money in short period (like Bank Executives) rather than spending their whole life on minimum wages working as a less qualified person.and also The advance in techonology has also had a great impact, replacing many people’s jobs especially in the agricultural fields industry, realizing making/forcing/encouraging them (to) go for job-related vocationalcourses by which they can do work faster and more effectively. For example, a degree in Technology in Agriculture or Mechanical Engineeringcourse through university.

In my opinion, in proffessional jobs workers like doctors and lawyers are spending most of their life period to being trained and before starting to work and managing to earn a higher income with more respect. However, I think most of them are not able to cope with the job’s responsibility and stress. In fact, there are so many universities which gives the opportunity to do online courses.

In conclusion, the advantages of going to university in order to get higher qualifications outweigh the disadvantages. It has had an incredible impact in the progress of developing countries like India. In addition, with theadvance in techonolgy, it’s possisble to share work or to do job from your/the computer so that one can maintain a good work-life balance and avoid stress-induced health problems.

I am so excited on seeing my IELTS result, it was awesome to get 7 in Speaking. The fact is I registered with iPassIELTS for only 3 speaking sessions with Nigel, but those online interviews really boosted my confidence and since the online mock test was an exact replica of the real IELTS exam, I felt so comfortable during the speaking test. Even the topic was the same as I had during the mock test.

Nigel was truly wonderful during all my practice tests, he was so patient and he subsequently provided me with good tips and he corrected me whenever I made mistakes in grammar, pronunciation and linking of sentences. I am really happy and satisfied with his tuition and help. I am eager to score more in all modules so I hope to take a complete IELTS package in the future with iPass.
