Some people think that a person improves their intellectual skills
more when doing group activities. To what extent do Ru agree? Use
specific details and examples to explain RXUYLHZ.

In recent decades, many researchers have studied the importance of
group-level cognition. Indeed, to my mind, there is now convincing evidence
that group activities improve the intelligence of individuals. In this essa, I
shall examine how research in team-games and studJURXSs supports this
view.
To begin with, team-games clearly require individuals to perform a diverse
range of rapid mental calculations. This is because, in a sporting context,
plaHUs must predict and anticipate possible actions within tight time
constraints. For example, a recent Cambridge study showed that soccer
plaHUs can – within the span of seconds – calculate over a dozen different
permutations that could result from a single soccer related action. Such
predictive powers clearly improve plaHUV’ mental abilities and result from
activities performed in a group context.

© ​ ​IE LT S Po d ca st.c o m / B .W orth in gto n / B W E n glis h S erv ic e s. 2 01 8.
All R ig h ts R ese rv e d .

Secondl, studJURXSs enable individuals to obtain information that they
could not acquire in isolation. This is because peer feedback allows
individuals to refine their understanding of concepts and to also learn new
information from other members in the studJURXS. For example, a study
by The British Institute for Learning found that, if individuals participated in
studJURXSV, they had a far more objective and sophisticated
understanding of a topic than learners who were not part of studJURXSV.
Therefore, it is certainly the case that learning in a group improves an
individual’s mental abilities.

In conclusion, I strongly agree with the notion that group activities improve
intellectual abilities. In the future, we will certainly see schools take greater
measures to ensure that more group-level cognition occurs in the classroom.

Some people think that secondary school children should study

that it is a waste of valuable school time. What do Ru think? Give
reasons for RXr answer and include any relevant examples from
RXURZQNQRZOHGJHRUH[SHULHQFH.

The potential for the global media to shape the views of todas RXWh is
considerable. However, while some commentators think that the media has
no place within secondary education, other analVWs defend the idea that
international news should be studied at school. In this essa, I shall examine
a number of studies which show that both viewpoints are, to some degree,
justified.

To begin with, the global media undoubtedly enriches teenagers’
understanding of contemporary affairs. This is because television reports
provide concise summaries of international affairs. For example, a study run
by Oxford sociologists showed that the media heavily influenced teenagers’
knowledge of contemporary affairs. Since any secondary school education
would be incomplete without an awareness of such events, it is therefore
clear that the media can plaDYLWDOUROHLQDVVLVWLQJHGXFDWLRQ.

All R ig h ts R ese rv e d .

On the other hand, many critics argue that teenagers are negatively affected
by the global media’s focus on wars and civil unrest. This is because
exposure to violence often leads to depression. For example, recent surves
have discovered that depressed teenagers usually cite the dismal state of
the world as a source of their depression. Since mental health is an
important objective of secondary education, it is therefore questionable
whether the study of international news wouldn’t be a destructive and
wasteful use of school resource.

In conclusion, it should be clear that there are reasons for and against the
study of news at school. Thus if media studies are to enter schools in the
future, schools will have to think about how negative aspects of the news
can be decreased, and positive aspects maximized.

Some people like to travel outside their countr. Others would rather
travel to tourist spots in their own country first, before travelling
abroad. Which do Ru prefer to do and wh? Include specific details
and examples to support RXUFKRLFH.

Over the past few decades, the international tourism industry has gone
through a boom period. Cheap air travel, in particular, has allowed ordinary
working class people to travel to more international destinations than ever
before. In this essa, I shall refer to a number of sociological studies to show
why – contrary to popular opinion – domestic travel should initially take
precedence over international travel.

To begin with, people’s knowledge of their own countries and culture has
grown increasingly sketch. This is largely because foreign brands, television
shows and cultural objects flood local markets. For example, The Asian
Cultural Society found that Japanese teenagers knew more about American
television series than 19th Century Japanese woodcuts. It should, therefore,
be clear that citizens need to know much more about their own countries,
and that visits to local cultural centres should occur before visits to other
countries.

All R ig h ts R ese rv e d .

Secondl, people reap high economic benefits if they are well-travelled in
their country of birth. This is because local travel, in particular, opens up
business opportunities. For example, the Korean Society for
Entrepreneurship found that 40% of successful start-up companies were run
by individuals who had travelled extensively in Korea and sniffed out small
openings in developmentally neglected areas. Seen in this light, local travel
can also be of vital economic significance

To conclude, although few would argue outright against foreign travel, there
are certainly reasons why domestic travel is initially preferable. In the
future, as some of the hSe surrounding foreign travel dies down, these
reasons will no doubt appear more attractive and conspicuous.

In some countries, the number of shootings increase because many
people have guns at home. To what extent do Ru agree or disagree?
Give specific reasons and examples to support RXUDQVZHU.

Across the globe, many individuals own guns for self-defense and
recreational purposes. Gun-related mortalities in households – in particular –
throw the ethics of such forms of private gun ownership into sharp relief. In
this essa, I shall appeal to crime statistics to argue that a person is at a far
greater risk being shot if there is a gun in a household.

Firstl, it is intuitively obvious that having a gun in a household endangers
children and teenagers. This is because minors do not have the requisite
knowledge or maturity to handle guns safel. For example, the US
Department of Justice recently revealed statistics showing that 150
American children and teenagers die each HDr because of accidents relating
to household guns. Therefore it is incontrovertible that household guns lead
to additional shootings.

All R ig h ts R ese rv e d .

Secondl, household guns become especially dangerous when couples have
violent arguments. This is because male sexual rage, in particular, often
results in deadly aggression. For example, The International Crime Bureau
recently produced statistical evidence that, if a man discovers his wife
having an affair, he is twice as likely to kill her in a fit of jealous rage if he
has easy access to a gun. Therefore, once again, household guns correlate

In conclusion, there is undeniable evidence that having a gun in a house
leads to further shootings. Given the strength of this evidence, in the future,
more legislation needs to be put in place to limit private gun ownership.

Obesity is a serious problem in many countries, especially in rich

reasons and examples to support RXUDQVZHU.

With the advent of urbanisation and the rise in popularity of fast food, there

developed countries like Britain and the USA. After providing a careful
analVLs of why obesity has risen so sharply in these countries, I shall
suggest a number of waVLQZKLFKWKHREHVLW epidemic can be ameliorated.

To begin with, it should be unsurprising that fast food is incredibly popular in
wealthy countries (like Britain and the USA). Due to the high levels of
development in these countries, consumers possess more money and can
therefore consume vast amounts of fast food without seriously diminishing
their income. For example, the American Dietary Association found that,
compared to the average Indian household, the average American
household’s budget for food is six times larger per month. Consequentl, it
is to be expected that obesity rates are much higher in countries with larger
amounts of wealth.

Some people think that keeping pets is good for children while
others think it is dangerous and unhealth. Which opinion do Ru
agree with? Discuss both options and give examples.

In recent times, pet related injuries and fatalities have sparked heated
debates about whether it is healthy for children to be around pets. In this
essay I shall argue that such dangers are overemphasised and that children
receive substantive psFKRORJLFDOEHQHILWVWKURXJKKDYLQJSHWV.

To begin with, although exotic pets (e.g. snakes, spiders, apes, etc.) have
been known to occasionally hurt and even kill children, such incidents are so
statistically rare as to be negligible. This is because the overwhelming
majority of children have non-lethal cats, dogs, fish, rodents and rabbits for
pets. For example The Child Safety Institute found that over 90% of children
owned the aforementioned pets, and professed that they had never felt in
the least bit endangered by them. Seen in this light, it is clearly unfounded
to claim that pets present anSKsical danger to children.

All R ig h ts R ese rv e d .

Secondl, pets can impact positively upon child psFKRORJ. This is because
RXQg pet owners frequently empathise with their pets and perform a
diverse range of actions to maintain their wellbeing (e.g. feeding, grooming,
administering medicine, etc). For example, the Cambridge Developmental
PsFKRORJy Unit found that children who had grown up with pets were 30%
less likely to bully others and to resolve conflicts through aggression.
Consequentl, it is undeniable that a child’s pro-sociality and mental health
can be improved through exposure to pets.

In conclusion, the cited evidence provides strong support for the view that
children owning pets is a good thing. In the future, as more laws are
introduced to ban the ownership of illegally acquired exotic pets, this
viewpoint will no doubt surge in popularit.

Ever since the industrial revolution, mass produced goods have flooded the

is now becoming increasingly clear that handmade goods are more desirable
for modern, informed consumers. In this essa, I shall look at some of the
ethical and qualitEDVHGUHDVRQVIRUWKLVUHHYDOXDWLRQ.

To begin with, handmade goods can be made with far more care and
attention to detail than mass produced goods. This is because machines lack
a sensitivity that experienced craftsman evidently possess. For example, a
study by the International Consumerist Society found that handmade
furniture, musical instruments and jewellery were consistently rated as being
more attractive (by consumers) than their mass made counterparts.
Therefore it is clear that buHUs prefer handmade goods for reasons that
relate to qualitRIZRUNPDQVKLS.

Secondl, handmade production companies have far more ethical attitudes
towards the environment. This is because factories and chemical processes
heavily underpin mass industrial production. For example the British Green
Party found that the levels of toxicity and environmental damage outside
handmade production centres were paltry compared to the levels found
outside factories used for mass production. Consequentl, since modern
consumers are more environmentally conscious than ever before, these
findings have clearlFRQWULEXWHGWRWKHLUSUHIHUHQFHIRUKDQGPDGHJRRGV.
In conclusion, there are compelling reasons for why modern consumers
favour handmade goods. In the future, as environmental issues worsen, this

Is it good for children to start using computers from an early age
and spend long hours on them? Discuss the advantages and
disadvantages.

In recent HDUV, children, like adults, have become increasingly exposed to
computers. While some child psFKRORJLVWs have claimed that this is a good
thing, others have claimed that it has an overwhelmingly detrimental impact
on children. In this essa, I shall draw upon a number of studies in cognitive
science and industrial psFKRORJy that reveal the positive and negative
aspects of this phenomenon.

To begin with, clearly there are reasons why computers do not allow children
to develop long attention spans. This is because computers are packed with
many supposedly child-friendly games that require minimal levels of
concentration in order to be enjoHG. For example, a study by the New York
Child Learning Association found that children who read from picture books
were 50% less likely to get distracted than children who plaHd educational
computer games. Therefore computers almost certainly have a negative
impact on RXQJFKLOGUHQ.

However, since the world has become heavily reliant on computers, there
are also clear advantages to exposing children to computers. This is because
children with such exposure will stand a better chance of finding
emploPHQW. For example, after being interviewed by Yale psFKRORJLVWV,
over 70% of RXQg office workers admitted that they had spent long hours
on computers in their middle and late childhood HDUV. Therefore it is clear
that computer exposure can be beneficial to children.

In conclusion, there are advantages and disadvantages to early computer
exposure. However, if, in the future, the quality of educational gaming is
increased, there is good reason to believe that these negative consequences
will fall entirelDZD.

The question of women’s rights has alwas sparked heated controvers.
While some traditionalists claim that women should focus on the upkeep of
their homes and children, more liberal minded people have claimed that
women should have the same rights as men. In this essa, I shall refer to
sociological studies that vindicate the liberal view.

To begin with, it is false to believe that a woman cannot have a job and raise
her children effectivel. This is because part-time and online work obviously
gives women the time and space to care for their children. For example, the
Organisation for Child Care found that mothers who did part-time or online
work spent as much time with their children (after school hours) as
housewives. Therefore, it is incorrect to claim – as traditionalists do – that
having a career compromises a mother’s abilitWRFDUHIRUKHUFKLOGUHQ.

Secondl, mothers who work also gain the means to invest more in their
children’s education and personal development. This is because an additional
source of revenue enables parents to send their children to private schools
and extra-mural classes. For example, a Harvard study found that parents
were 50% more likely to invest in these services if both parents had
separate sources of financial income. It is therefore clear that being a
working mother can facilitate, rather than impede, good parenting.

In conclusion, there is strong evidence that women can have jobs and be
good mothers. Seen in this light, it is clear that the traditionalist view is

Some people believe that international sporting events are the ideal
opportunity to show the world the qualities of the hosting nation.
Others believe that these events are mainly a large unjustifiable
expense. To what extent do RXDJUHHRUGLVDJUHH?

Global athletic events such as the OlPSLFV, the World Cup, the Extreme
Games and even the American Super Bowl are incredible opportunities for
countries. These iconic spectacles can provide a country with an economic
avalanche of benefits or expose it to a public relations disaster. This essay
will look at both possibilities, using Russia and the United Kingdom as
examples.

Firstl, it is important to bear in mind that simply hosting the event and
having the world’s media attention cannot guarantee a positive promotion.
This is because, although the country is receiving enormous amounts of
publicit, the media will often report controversial news as well as the good.
Take the Winter OlPSLFs in Socchi, Russia, for example. The media
spotlight was shining brightly on the athletes but also highlighting the
polemic legislation regarding homosexualit. Therefore, despite the
international recognition to be gained, the country can also face a possible
backlash.

All R ig h ts R ese rv e d .

Secondl, the expense of building the infrastructure necessary to hold these
events can dwarf the benefits, unless they are fully amortized afterwards.
This is largely due to the fact that stadiums, OlPSLc parks, ski runs etc. are
expensive to construct and require large capital expenditure, often by the
public sector. In the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in 2002, the
council commissioned a stadium for athletic events which was later adapted
and sold to the local pre-eminent football club, Manchester Cit. Therefore
with proper, fair, economic management of such buildings and facilities the
cost can be recuperated.

To conclude, a host city or nation has a lot to gain from these events but
only if they are economically administered correctly and the country has no
controversial issues for the media to pull out of the closet.

interesting topic. I believe there would be severe consequences if geography
were to disappear, mainly due to the understanding and open-mindedness
that is derived from such studies.

Firstl, with evermore complex geopolitical strategies being plaHd out, it
can be considered extremely valuable to be able to identify the locations of
these events without checking on a map. Religious and border conflicts are
among the most common sources of news events, and a lack of knowledge
as to where these events are taking place can be considered ignorance. For
example, areas such as the Middle East are constantly in the news.
Therefore, by being merely aware of their location in the world, readers or
viewers can greatlLQFUHDVHWKHLUXQGHUVWDQGLQJRIWKHFRQIOLFW.

Secondl, making geography compulsory in schools would most likely
encourage students to travel later in life. This is because geography can
bring to light options Ru may not have known existed previousl. For
example, historically England has been the top destination to learn English.
However, in recent times students have learned about more economical
options such as Malta or Ireland. Therefore, without a sound geographical
knowledge of Europe, these options could have been overlooked.

To conclude, removing geography from the school curriculum would reduce a
student’s ability to fully assimilate global events in the media. Furthermore,
removing the subject could indirectly reduce the number of perceived
options available to students.

Toda, the quality of life in large cities is decreasing. Discuss the
causes and solutions.

The global phenomenon of urbanisation from the beginning of
industrialisation to the present day has brought opportunity and prosperit,
albeit at a cost in the quality of life. With an increasing city population, the
complexity of the challenges also increases. The causes and solutions for this
are outlined below.

The causes for the decrease in the quality of life are paradoxically the
prosperity endowed on such metropolitan centres. Their growth is largely
due to the increased opportunities on offer, which in turn increases the
cities’ attractiveness; essentially they are trapped in a positive
self-reinforcing cFOH. However, this eventually leads to a decrease in the
quality of life as the city can experience overcrowding, exorbitant property
prices and increased vulnerability to terrorist attacks. For example, the
density of London makes it a more efficient place to attack, when compared
to a smaller cit, such as Bradford. Therefore, due to continuous growth and
prosperit, urban citizens, especially the less well off, often experience a
lower standard of living.

Considering the solutions, greater investment in public transport would ease
traffic congestion, as would bike lanes. In theor, this would reduce air
pollution and possibly improve the well-being of the population if they
adopted a more active lifestOe and cFOHd to work. To counter violent
terrorist attacks, cities could embark on CCTV installation, so as to closely
monitor for threats. For example, it is said, the CCTV in London has foiled
many potential attacks, and therefore greatly increased the security of its
citizens.

To conclude, a wealthy city attracts large population inflows, which then
increase pressure on existing infrastructure and securit. Various solutions
exist to mitigate such drawbacks, but nevertheless a definitive solution has

Many governments in the world spend large amounts of money on
art, which helps to improve the quality of people’s lives. However,
governments should spend money on other things rather than art.
Do RXDJUHHRUGLVDJUHH"*LYHour opinion.

Societies with a heritage in the ‘arts’ have long been considered culturally
sophisticated and advanced. However, with the recent financial crisis this
lavishness and expense should be questioned. Tax-paHUV’ money has to be
spent practically rather than on cultural endeavours. Firstl, not everRQe in

Art can bring quality into one’s life if Ru are interested. In societ,
art-lovers are tSLFDOOy in the minorit, and other activities, such as sport,

that there are more people watching matches in stadiums than looking at

Secondl, the resources diverted to such projects come from the public and
should be spent in a way that benefits them. Commissioning or purchasing
art is an insult to tax-paHUs who endure high unemploPHQW, such as those
in Newcastle, UK. This city suffers from historically high unemploPHQW, Ht
the council commissioned a large sculpture called ‘The Angel of the North’.
Financing a job creation project would undoubtedly have been more practical
for the local communit.

To conclude, I believe that it is an untrue to assert that art brings quality
into one’s life and I agree that the money should be spent elsewhere. This is
because art expenditure only benefits a small minority and the expense
involved should benefit the majorit. Ideally in the future, governments will

Some people believe that children’s leisure activities must be
educational, otherwise they are a complete waste of time. Do Ru
agree or disagree? Give reasons for RXr answer and include any
relevant examples from RXUH[SHULHQFH.

To derive a double benefit from anWKLQg is considered a bonus and this is
especially the case when discussing leisure activities for children. Fusing
both education and entertainment into one activity is a goal of many
educators; some would even believe that failure to do this makes the activity
pointless. Drawing from examples in Sweden and reviewing games, such as
Pokemon, I firmly believe that all activities should have an educational
value.

Leisure activities are a perfect time to take advantage of the receptiveness
of a child’s mind, and some countries are adamant about this. Take Sweden,
for example. For many HDUV, they have legally stipulated that all children’s
tos sold in the country should have some educational value. In addition, for
such a rule to be passed, it must be upheld by scientific research. Therefore,
the advantage of incorporating an education element into tos is

On the other hand, across the UK, children are wasting their time collecting
and learning the statistics of each creature on each Pokemon card. If,
however, these cards had been intertwined with more educational data the
child could have simultaneously gained a more practical education. Due to
children learning large swathes of irrelevant and useless information, it can
be argued that the time would have been better spent with real facts and
figures on the cards.

To conclude, scientific evidence from Sweden and fantasy games such as
Pokemon with little educational value are two clear reasons why children’s
leisure activities should have an element of learning involved.

Women can do everWKLQg that men can and they even do it better.
They also can do many things that men cannot. But it is a fact that
their work is not appreciated as much as men’s, although they have
to sacrifice a lot for their family and career… It is said: “A woman’s
place is in the home.” What do RXWKLQN?

Women and men have had different roles in the community since the
beginning of histor. Under modern conditions, these differences are slowly
converging. However, due to the genetic inheritance and socio-demographic
components, differences do exist.

Firstl, men are undoubtedly better adapted genetically to performing
phVLFDl tasks. Therefore, the assumption that women can match men in
everWKLQg is clearly flawed. The difference between their phVLFDl abilities is
clearly demonstrated in the sporting arena. Take, for example, the OlPSLFs
or any international sporting event. It can be clearly seen that, in these
competitions, the genders are separated due to inherent differences between
the sexes.

Secondl, it has been argued that women are less appreciated in society due
to their traditional role in the home. This statement is true to a certain
extent because it largely depends on the societ. In certain traditional
societies in Africa, women working are frowned upon and are seen as
neglecting the famil, whereas in Afghanistan, in general, women are
allowed to do little else but stay at home, being a housewife. Consequentl,
a woman’s value is largely dictated by her societ, culture and histor.
Nevertheless, to state that her place is in the home is widely considered
sexist in modern western societies.

To conclude, differences do certainly exist; however, these are largely
through nature. Also, the role women may have is usually dictated by other
factors, such as religion or societQRWDELOLW.

Improvements in health, education and trade are essential for the
development of poorer nations. However, the governments of richer
nations should take more responsibility for helping the poorer
nations in such areas. To what extent do RXDJUHH?

Undoubtedly the governments of developed nations should share the
responsibility of helping less fortunate nations. Different measures exist,
ranging from market access to direct financial paPHQWs or even medical
assistance. This essay will explain why certain measures are inherently
better than others.

Firstl, the most effective way to assist less developed countries is not
through health or education ‘hand-outs’. This method is flawed and only
offers temporary relief from long-term challenges; also this assistance can
be cut at any moment, leaving the country stranded. For example, economic
help from the UK to disadvantaged regions in Africa has gradually been
reduced since the onset of the financial crisis. Although some parts of the
continent may be better educated or in better health, the benefit was
short-lived, thus leaving the countries of Africa to look for other donors.

All R ig h ts R ese rv e d .

Commerce is, without doubt, the most effective tSe of assistance that can
be given. If the less developed country has the opportunity to develop trade,
then it can build strong capabilities that will serve it in the long term. These
strengths can develop the local economy and are more reliable than
education or health. For example, while trading with the richer countr, the
government can search for other foreign markets to trade with. This would
offer more stabilitDQGGLYHUVLILFDWLRQIRUWKHQDWLRQ.

To conclude, assistance is definitely necessary for the poorer regions;
however, ‘hand-outs’ are short-term solutions. The optimal solution is to
offer market access so the region can produce goods and thus generate a
regular income.

Most schools are planning to replace sport and exercise classes with
more academic sessions. How will this change affect children’s lives
in RXUYLHZ?

The debate between where to allocate valuable teaching resources probably
started with the first educational institutions. In present-day societ, the
conflict continues and rightly so. In my opinion converting sports classes to
more traditional subjects has two significant advantages. Firstl, it is a more
effective use of a student’s time. Secondl, in the future, academic skills will
be more useful.

Switching time spent on sport in a school to time spent on more academic
activities is a wise and cost-effective solution. Firstl, academic studies are
inherently less expensive to organise than phVLFDl education. For example,
to play almost any sport, one has to invest in the appropriate equipment,
ranging from shorts and t-shirts to rackets and balls. Furthermore, excess
time is spent in the changing rooms or washing afterwards. In more
traditional subjects, students merely enter the classroom and are learning
within minutes.

Secondl, it can be argued that sport is an activity practised naturally by
children, especially boV. In every school at break-time, many children
engage in energetic activities, whereas hardly any are studLQg algebra,
biology or phVLFV. As these subjects are less popular, more resources
should be allocated to teaching them. In addition, academic skills are
arguably more important due to the small number of people in society
currently using sport skills in a work environment. Thus, focusing on skills
demanded by the labour market would benefit students’ lives dramatically in
the future.

To conclude, RXQg learners going through school would end up much better
prepared for life by avoiding sports tuition. Furthermore, they would have
taken full advantage of their school HDUVWKURXJKPRUHWLPHVSHQWOHDUQLQJ.

Crime is a big problem in the world; many believe that nothing can
be done to prevent it. To what extent do Ru agree or disagree? Give
RXURZQRSLQLRQ.

Crime is unquestionably one of the most prevailing and worrLQg aspects in
any societ, and its prevention should be taken seriousl. Crime prevention
can be achieved in various waV, firstly through a sustained honest presence
in the communitDQGVHFRQGO through international cooperation.

A local presence by incorruptible law enforcement authorities may be costly
but the long-term investment will pay dividends in the future. A safer region
would encourage trade, investment and set an invaluable example for
RXQJHr generations. For example, crime has dramatically been reduced in
the Favelas around Rio de Janiero in Brazil. This was achieved largely
through the government committing large funds of money to stationing
police headquarters in and around the slums. These financial expenditures

Secondl, due to its severity and the global impact that crime has in some
areas of the world, global cooperation is critical. Operating in a parochial
way would incur significant financial losses and render any expenditure
futile. For example, Somali pirates in Africa have spread terror among many
ocean transport companies in the area. Only through large-scale
international cooperation was policing the area possible. Therefore, crime
reduction can be attributed to a joint effort between countries.

To conclude, illegal activities are a costly and dangerous fact in the present
global econom; through large-scale government investment, however,
prevention is an attainable goal. Also, by spreading the expense through
international cooperation, the resources invested can be significantly more
effective in reducing criminals’ impact abroad.

Should education and healthcare be free of charge and funded by the
government, or should it be the responsibility of the people to pay
for these services? Discuss the above and give RXr opinion using
examples.

A healthy and educated society is the backbone of any successful countr;
deciding who is to provide this, however, is a sensitive topic. I strongly
believe the government should be held responsible for providing these
services for two reasons. Firstl, the entire society benefits and secondly the
whole population is paLQg for the services. However, if one prefers extra
services theVKRXOGEHSUHSDUHGWRSD for it themselves.

Firstl, education is largely considered a basic right. A population unable to
calculate, read, write or even learn would be doomed in a competitive global
econom. Globalisation has increased competition and shifted the emphasis
to knowledge, information and science. A state education should, therefore,
be freely available to everERG. However, if people wish to purchase private
education, this should also be allowed or even encouraged. Private education
reduces the strain on public services and provides a source of tax revenue
for the government, in effect, subsidising state education.

All R ig h ts R ese rv e d .

Secondl, health services must undoubtedly be available to all because the
entire nation is paLQg taxes and, therefore, should not be excluded from
any service. Take the NHS in the UK, for example; this organisation caters
for the entire population, and no private medical insurance is needed.
Unfortunately waiting lists can be long and service is occasionally slow;
therefore, some purchase private medical insurance for a faster service. This
reduces the workload of the public sector.

To conclude, I believe both healthcare and education are basic fundamental
rights, necessary for any advanced society and, therefore, the responsibility
should lie with the government. Nevertheless, if individuals require more
than the standard level, then theVKRXOGEHSUHSDUHGWRSD for it.
