雅思写作话题：In recent years pressure on school and university students has been increasing and they are pushed to work very hard from a young age.Do you think this is a positive or negative development? 近年来学生身上的压力越发大，他们必须从小就刻苦努力。好与坏?
Some people believe that students need to work diligently from an early age since they face increasing more pressure at high school and university. However, I cannot agree with this opinion.
Admittedly, studying harder can make students become more competitive when they receive higher education. It is acknowledged that knowledge one learns at high school and university is more difficult than that of primary and secondary school. If students can learn more knowledge earlier, when they go to high school and university, they probably find that some courses are quite easy for them since they learn some knowledge in advance. However, admitting merits brought by studying harder is not assuming that young students must spend more time on it.
To begin with, students may lose their interest in study if they are forced to study from an early age. For most primary and secondary students, it may be difficult for them to understand the reason why they need to work hard; in other words, they probably lack motivation for study. Providing that schools or parents demand them to concentrate on courses, taking classes will become a boring task for them. Then, it is more likely that students will dislike study, but not focus on it.
In addition, spending too time on study, students will have insufficient time to develop their own hobbies. In the current era, receiving higher education is not the only option for students and many of them can make a living through their personal interests. For example, some students show their talents in taking photos or playing electronic games and there are a lot of photographers and players who live a comfortable life. If students are asked to spend more time on study, their talents in other fields may be neglected.
To sum up, there is no need for students to study harder when they are young, considering that they do not have time for developing their own interests and some of them even dislike study.
