One of the main issues that students complain during their undergratuate or graduate life is attending in the classes. Universtiy students are almost always required to attend the classes and exams to pass the criteria to be able to graduate. Although, there are two different controversies about making the classes optional or mandatory, I will give some clues in here in after and suggest my personal ideas and solution.
To begin with, I would like to give some advantages about the courses which are offered at university level. Classes are major source of information for students. Students willy or nilly -if it is mandatory- should attend and even if they are not willing to take the course, they will be introduced some main issues of the science. Majority of the classes are those that have been learnt during high school but with a more in depth views and mathematical formulations. And there is no doubt that the courses are very informative. Moreover, majority of students are lazy in reading and studying -as far as I understood during my whole academic life-, however a class and an exam will make them to study and keep the pace with the current trend science.
On the other hand, I could name some main problems that I faced during my graduate student life. Graduate students are supposed to contribute to the modern science and this can not happen unless with extensive reading and experimenting. Although attending the classes can be informative however it is not compatible with the research time and schedule and it made a burden for me to participate in those classes during my graduate life. Most of them had the concepts that I already knew. Furthermore, the level of student and their professionality is different so the professor can not be specific for each student and it degrades the level of the class for almost all of the students.
Conclusively, I would prefer to attend the optional courses that I like and those that coincide with my research topic. If the schools can make some optional classes among which the students are required to take it would be the best choice.
Please, Give some commetns about the writing and the improvement also.
