Sports Students Should Be Enrolled

It becomes more and more common that many universities, especially those famous ones, lower their academic standards to enroll students who have special athletic talents. Some people hold a strong objection to it while the rest contend it acceptable and reasonable. As far as I'm concerned, I fully appreciate this policy.

First of all, all students are granted an equal chance to access to higher education, while academic scores are not the only yardstick that matters. High academic scores are rarely seen in those sports talents, since nearly all of them devote their early school years to tough and arduous training. In the course of physical exercise, the spirit of diligence and perseverance is observed, which is no different from that of their peers at school. Thus they should be awarded an opportunity to the ivory tower in spite of their poor scores in entrance examinations. Universities can help these students actualize their dreams to become a knowledgeable person. Also those universities may supply athletic students with better conditions to improve their sports performance.

Furthermore, it is also very helpful for universities to build their fame and strengthen their competitiveness in sports games. Competition between universities is extensive, so most famous universities pay attention not only to academic researches but also to many other aspects, for example, arts and sports. Good athletic scores can improve the fame of the universities, which in turn can attract more excellent new comers. And those sports talents may also play an important role in piquing other students’ interest in sports. All these help to sharpen the competitive edges of universities.

Last but not least, taking in sports talents may help to relax the tension of exclusive concern with scores in current society. With college entrance exam getting more and more demanding, school children have suffered more pressure from the high expectation of teachers and parents. However, the new practice of taking in sports students has shown another direction for both parents and children. Hopefully, to some extent, the anxiety can be relieved of a large crowd.

All in all, enrolling athletic students by lowering academic standards has brought more advantages to our society. As proved in ancient wisdom, every road leads to Rome. Academic scores are not the only way to higher education. Universities should provide an equal chance and take in sports talents.
