Should Universities Lower Admission Requirements for Celebrities
It is not rare to hear that some universities lower their admission requirements for celebrity students, such as a pop singer or an Olympic medal winner. Some people think it is unfair to other students, and the universities are utilitarian. But others hold the opinion that the celebrities can’t be blamed for their wanting to go to universities to improve themselves. They make contributions or have talents, so it is justified for universities to accept them with a relatively low requirement. From my point of view, universities should reasonably lower the admission requirements for celebrities, that is, although the requirements lowered, there must still be a principle.
On the one hand, it is of great significance for celebrities to be enrolled into universities. Take the Olympic winners for example. They started training since they were little children. They contribute their boundless wisdom and painstaking efforts to raising the level of our country’s sport competition. Lowering the admission requirements for them is the encouragement and support to their great achievements. It is also beneficial for them to do more contribution to the society after they retire if they receive high education and acquire more knowledge. What’s more, it is a way to combine the high education with competition training, and promote the career of sports. The celebrities make great contributions or have special talents. The universities should consider the situation fully and lower the admission requirements accordingly.
On the other hand, not all the celebrities can be accepted into universities. The standard can be lowered but can’t be lowered without limit. The celebrities with primary school education or junior middle school education should not be admitted to universities, because the high education is after senior high middle school. And the celebrities have to finish all the courses and pass all the exams. In my opinion, two principles should be considered. One is the education of senior middle school. The other is the credits required by the university. That’s to say, the celebrities should pay more attention to the study of knowledge, and they must complete their studies.
To sum up, we should be sensible about lowering admission requirements for celebrities. For the celebrities who make contributions and have the capacity, universities should provide chances and give them special requirements. But for those who are not suitable, the universities should not lower the standard without limit.
