Some school leavers travel or work for a period of time instead of going directly to the university. What are the advantages and disadvantages.

Introduction: (you can give definition of gap year. A gap year is a year after high school when a student (18 years old) takes time to explore his or her interests, which usually entails some type of travelling. After the gap year is over, the student begins his or her career. It has both pros and cons which I’ll discuss in this essay.

Paragraph 1: Advantages
1.  The student can explore his / her interests before deciding on a major. A student may also find something he has never considered studying before.
2.  Save money to finance education ( ease burden on parents )
3.  Meet different people and experience cultures. – personality develops.
4.  A well planned gap year is attractive to some admissions tutors and to future employers.
Paragraph 2: Disadvantages
1.  You may find it difficult to get back to study. If you start earning enough, education may seem unimportant.
2.  Lack of motivation and progress later on.
3.  If you don’t plan it properly, it may end up as a wasted year.
Conclusion: Sum up.
( Similar essay – (12-09-2009 India )When students leave school and enter into university or college. The time in between leaving school and entering college, the experience of work is more important than travelling. To what extent do you agree or disagree?)
