Recently, students in our class have had a discussion on whether space is worth exploring. 30% of us think space exploration is not worthwhile. They think space is too far away from us and our daily life. And the money spent on space exploration can be used to solve the earth’s problem such as starvation and pollution. On the other hand, 70% think space is worth exploring because we have benefited a lot from it. We use satellites for communication and weather forecast. Also, space research will enable us to find new sources to solve the problem of energy shortages on the earth. What’s more, with further space research, we may solve the population problem by moving to other planets one day.

Understanding
As anxiety-makers, examinations are second to none. Examinations cause anxiety. A good education should train you to think for yourself. The examination system does anything but that. Examinations do not help to train students to think for themselves.

There must surely be many simpler and more effective ways of assessing a person’s true abilities. Examination is not the best way to test a person’s true abilities.
