From ideas to expressing:
University should accept equal numbers of male and female students in every subject.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?

In real life, it is always hard to avoid inequalities. For example, there are inequality between men and women, young and old, inferior and superior. Right here, I’d like to talk about inequalities between men and women. To be more specific, I argue that universities should not pursue to accept equal numbers of male and female students in every subject because this is an extreme way of doing things, ignoring the actual differences between the two sexes.


First of all, we should acknowledge that men and women have different roles to play in the society. Men can do a better job than women when the work requires a lot of strength. Women, on the other hand, have the edge on men in terms of doing secretarial and nursing work. Some subjects such as ocean navigation and mining are actually sex distinctive. After all, we cannot expect women to be bumping and floating on the sea for months. Nor can we expect women to work under a mine as this job is often filled with danger and has a relatively high requirement for physical strength of the laborers.


Second, a disproportional rate of male and female students in one class is conducive to class discipline and learning effect. A survey shows that when the rate of males and females in one class is 1:2, the students’ motivation for learning and the actual learning effect as well as the class discipline are the best. This research was made by comparing the situations in various kinds of male-female student ratio classes, including all-boy classes, all-girl classes, 50%-50% male-female classes and, therefore, is rather persuasive.


Sure, it is okay to recruit the same number of male and female students just for the sake of maintaining equality between the two sexes, but the key point is: is it fair? I’m afraid this will lead to greater inequality. For instance: the English department planned to recruit 30 freshmen and it turned out that there were 200 applicants. Based on the entrance test result, among the top 30, 21 were girls while boys accounted for only 9. Does it mean that the university should insist on enrolling 15 girls and 15 boys? If so, is it fair to those six girls who were not accepted? The answer is obvious: No!


From the foregoing discussion, we can come to the conclusion that accepting the same number of male and female students in every subject does not hold water; therefore, it is totally unadvisable.

Reading to improve writing-context-based study
Passage 1:
Faces, like fingerprints, are unique. Did you ever wonder how it is possible for us to recognize people? Even a skilled writer probably could not describe all the features that make one face different from another. Yet a very young child—or even an animal, such as a pigeon—can recognize faces, and we all take this ability for granted.
We also tell people apart by how they behave. When we talk about someone’s personality, we mean the ways in which he or she acts, speaks, thinks, and feels that make that individual different from others.
Like the human face, human personality is very complex. But describing someone’s personality in words is somewhat easier than describing his face. If you were asked to describe what a ‘nice face’ looked like, you probably would have a difficult time doing so. But if you were asked to describe a ‘nice person’, you might begin to think about someone who was kind, considerate, friendly, warm, and so forth.
There are many words to describe how a person thinks, feels and acts. Gordon Allport, an American psychologist, found nearly 18,000 English words characterizing differences in people’s behavior. And many of us use this information as a basis for describing, or typing, his personality. Bookworms, conservatives, military types—people are described with such terms.
People have always tried to ‘type’ each other. Actors in early Greek drama wore masks to show the audience whether they played the villain’s or the hero’s role. In fact, the words ‘person’ and ‘personality’ come from the Latin persona, meaning ‘mask’. Today, most television and movie actors do not wear masks. But we can easily tell the ‘good guys’ from the ‘bad guys’ because the two types differ in appearance as well as in actions.

Passage 2:
Statuses are marvelous human inventions that enable us to get along with one another and to determine where we ‘fit’ in society. As we go about our everyday lives, we mentally attempt to place people in terms of their statuses. For example, we must judge whether the person in the library is a reader or a librarian, whether the telephone caller is a friend or a salesman, whether the unfamiliar person on our property is a thief or a meter reader, and so on.
The statuses we assume often vary with the people we encounter, and change throughout life. Most of us can, at very high speed, assume the statuses that various situations require. Much of social interaction consists of identifying and selecting among appropriate statuses and allowing other people to assume their statuses in relation to us. This means that we fit our actions to those of other people based on a constant mental process of appraisal and interpretation. Although, some of us find the task more difficult than others, most of us perform it rather effortlessly.
A status has been compared to ready-made clothes. Within certain limits, the buyer can choose style and fabric. But an American is not free to choose the costume of a Chinese farmer or that of a Hindu prince. We must choose from among the clothing presented by our society. Furthermore, our choice is limited to a size that will fit, as well as by our pocketbook. Having made a choice within these limits, we can have certain alterations made, but apart from minor adjustments, we tend to be limited to what the stores have on their racks. Statuses, too, come ready made, and the range of choice among them is limited.
