July-year 2012 MUET

  1. 1. July-year 2012 MUETCo-curriculum activities should be made compulsory for entrance into local universities. Giveyour opinion. You should write at least 350 words.Suggested answerCo-curriculum activities should be made compulsory for entrance into local universities. I amstrongly in favour of this. Co-curriculum activities encompass activities such as uniform units,societies, clubs and games. Every secondary student should be involved in at least one activityfrom each unit of the co-curriculum activities offered in their school. There are many advantagesthat students can reap from taking part in co-curriculum activities. First of all, many students learn to socialize and interact through the activities that theytake part in when they join any co-curriculum activity. They make friend, learn to give and take,and also to tolerate besides respecting their friends. In addition, the attitude of respect betweenthem would be built. This case coincides with the Malay proverb “to the same hill climb into thesame groove descendants”. Therefore, the important of co-curriculum activities are shapingsocial attitudes. Moreover, by joining any co-curriculum activity, the students fill up their timeconstructively. They learn to be involved in healthy activities that will be able build up theirconfidence and self-esteem. They will not get involved in unhealthy activities that will bringsocial ills to the nation. Some of the activities that they can take up are games such as football orbadminton, swimming, involvement in Chess Club, Girl Guides or Scouts. These activities keepthe students occupied so that they do not fall prey to negative influences. On the contrary, involvement in any co-curriculum can help build up leadership activityqualities among students. We will have students who excel at well by holding responsibilitiesand seeing to the organisation of activities in the club or movement. Hence, we have studentswho can shoulder responsibilities by becoming the President of a club, treasurer, committeemember, secretary and many other posts available in the club or movement. All in all, students who are actively involved in co-curriculum activities are able to spendtheir time wisely. They are also well-mannered as they are instilled with positive values. Assuch, I strongly feel that co-curriculum activities should be made compulsory for entrance intolocal universities for the benefits that the students can reap by joining these activities.(358 words)
