Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitled Certificate Craze. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
According to a recent survey conducted by China Daily, the past five years has witnessed a sharp increase in the number of college students who are crazy about getting certificates, from 1,254,251 to 11,548,254. Campuses are full of all kinds of certificates.
However, this has both advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, in order to get certificates, students have to pay more attention to studying instead of playing. They can learn a lot from the process of preparing for the examinations, which will benefit their later life. What’s more, those certificates can help them succeed in applying for jobs. On the other hand, it also has many negative influences. Some students are very blind. They just go with the flow and don’t consider from their own points of view. Many unnecessary certificates waste them a lot of time and money.
In my opinion, we should take action from our own reality and try to get some useful certificates.
