A University should accept male and female students equally in every subject.

Write at least 250 words.

Model Answer 1:
(Agreement: A University should accept male and female students equally)
There is an old saying – ‘Give me an educated mother and I will give you an educated nation’. This prover emphasises the women education. Throughout the history men and women both worked together to build a better world and whatever stage the current world is in, that has been contributed both by male and female – surely not by one gender. As university education is so important for the full bloom of one person’s merit, skill and knowledge, equal opportunity for both male and female students should be ensured.

To begin with, if only men go ahead in education, research, arts, history and women stay home, then no good can be done. The history suggests that men are dominant in numbers in science, arts, engineering, creativity and business sectors. But we cannot deny the contribution of Mother Teresa and Madam Merry Currie who have devoted their whole life to the betterment of the world. It is true that if the competition is arranged regardless of gender, more male students will be ahead of women. But still, universities should accept an equal number of students. If fewer females hold the important sectors of a country, naturally women will feel deprived and this will lead them to compete with men.

It is a mother who is much more emotionally attached to their children and friendlier to children than fathers. So they help the children in their study. So the importance of female education in the higher level should get a priority considering this single issue.

In conclusion, universities should accept the same number of students from both sexes and give an equal opportunity at every level.

Idea Generation for this IELTS Essay:

Essay Type: Argumentative (Agreement or Disagreement).

The main question of this IELTS Essay:

A. Whether a university should admit an equal number of male and female students in each subject?

Agreement: Why universities should accept male and female students equally in every subject.

  1. According to human rights, both genders must be permitted to study on their favourite subject. In some countries, due to religious beliefs and social issues, male doctors are not allowed to become Gynaecologists, and this has increased the rate of mortality and morbidity of cases.
  2. Males and females pay the same rate of taxes, so they must be given similar opportunity.
  3. Students will have a higher level of competition. To achieve higher encouragements from opposite gender, students will have tougher competition than when they compete with the same gender.
  4. This can help both sexes to increase their communication skills when it comes to having closer relationships with the opposite sex. Definitely, students of these schools will most probably have less matrimonial problems in the future.
  5. This will ensure the women empowerment and the society would benefit from this arrangement.
  6. Women in most of the society are underprivileged and this arrangement would ensure their better education and thus contribution to the family, society and country.
  7. If an equal number of male and female students get admitted in every subject offered in a university, more areas of research and employment would be explored by women and that would benefit the country as they would contribute more.
  8. Chances of gender discrimination in the classrooms would greatly reduce.
  9. If fewer females hold the important sectors of a country naturally women will feel deprived and this will lead them to compete with men.

Disagreement: Why universities should NOT accept male and female students equally in every subject.

  1. Physically some areas of work and related study fields are not appropriate for the women and that’s why they would naturally show less interest in those areas of study. For example, a female construction engineer working in outdoor may become frustrated by heavy physical activities that are normal for men.
  2. Sensationally, women are more fitted to some areas of study than men. Nursing is a good example in this case. So women in such subjects should get priority.
  3. It can be costly. Governments have to consider larger budgets for admitting an equal number of males and females.
  4. The level of sexual violence can be increased fundamentally.
  5. Reserved quota for females would be discriminating for some talented male students.
  6. University education should be based on talent and performance, not based on equal gender opportunity.
  7. In reality, the identical number of male and female students in every subject in a university is a fanciful idea that would deprive many talented male students of getting the university education.
  8. A form of natural selection will take place: survival of the fittest; and the end result would benefit us all.

Model Answer 2:
(Disagreement: A University should NOT accept male and female students equally)

The society and educational system have changed significantly from the old era when it was almost impossible for a girl to study in a university while only boys were allowed to do so. Now a girl can enrol to a university at her wish and merit. In many universities, female students exceed the male students in many subjects. I oppose the idea of granting the same number of male and female students in every subject offered in a university bypassing the merit list.

First of all, a university aims to educate people and prepare them for the future and those students would lead the country in the future. If the admission process prioritises sentiments and tries to accept the same number of students from both genders in each subject, it would not be a good idea for the country. Rather they should focus on talent and there is no harm if more female students can get admitted to the university based on talent.

Second, the important qualifications are the academic performance and merit. Here gender issue should not be considered. The equal number of male and female students in every subject is a whimsical idea that would deprive many talented male students. Third, since there is no restriction on the number of female students allowed for a subject, they can naturally compete in a fair fight and show they competence rather than being pitied by a policy. Again, not all male and female are equally interested in studying in every subject, they have their own choices. Implementing the equal number of male and female students in each subject would take away the freedom from students to study in their favourite subject.

In conclusion, the idea of admitting the same number of male and female students in university level in each subject is not a good idea and the admission should strictly base on choice and merit rather than emotion.

Model Answer 3: 
Universities are the places for higher education that straightly directs one’s future career. Since today’s belief is to obtain the equality between male and female, some may say that women are able to do whatever men can do and thus, a university should maintain the same number for both genders in every course. This is a very controversial issue and I shall hold the opposite opinion.Although male and female students can share the same ability to obtain and convey knowledge of one specific expertise to the practical work, some majors just prefer one gender to the other. For example, the job of civil engineering seems to fit better for men than women since it requires strong physical ability. Or though not impossible, it is hard for a woman to work as a firefighter or policeman. On the other hand, a fewer male would apply to work as nurses or baby sisters since these jobs require some delicate touches or “a woman’s hand”.Moreover, universities provide necessary education to train limited amount of qualified candidates and thus, there should be a fair competition for all who wish to receive this education. Balancing between genders may strip away the opportunity of some male or female candidates. It should be let for the natural selection as the survival of the fittest that encourages both men and women to fight for their right to pursue their dream jobs.

In conclusion, it is not necessary to hold a balance between male and female students in every university course since different majors attract different genders and one has his or her free will to join in any part of life with a fair fight.
