The Debate

...Last week, my English teacher gave us topics to debate on in class. My partner and I chose to debate on whether university courses should have a pass/fail grading system. I was against this proposal, and my partner was for it. As we got up to debate, I heard my classmates whispering that they wish our university had a pass/fail grading system. Consequently, I felt the pressure of convincing my peers about my point of view by coming up with great convincing arguments. My partner, Sarah started the debate by saying “I wish our university use the pass/fail grading system. It would be so much easier for us to actually pass in school without having to worry about our GPA, or if we got an A or a B. I stood there thinking of how to defend my argument then, I said: “Well Sarah, I do not really think you understand the meaning of University. It is not only about passing the course; it is about understanding what you are studying, because that will be your career. In addition, students who are in universities that include the pass/fail grading system do not put much effort on the course, because they only need to pass. For example, while a student is writing his exam, he counts answers he is sure that are correct. When he reaches to a certain percentage or number, he leaves the exam hall feeling safe. This semester, I am taking a managerial accounting course, where we submit an assignment every week. This is an online assignment and it only requires you to reach 60%. My......
