【六级作文】题目:The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.


It is universally acknowledged that the best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today. To put in another word, it is wise for us to seize the moment and spare no efforts to finish the current task.

On the one hand, actions play a key role in the course of achieving goals. As a consequence, it is imperative that we should take prompt actions to accomplish a future aim. On the other hand, we are supposed to attach due importance to the efficiency, which exerts a critical impact on personal growth and future career. As a result, improving the efficiency is what we cannot neglect.

In a word, effective and efficient actions must be taken by every individual for the sake of achieving great dreams. If we can make progress little by little, the dream will come true in the near future.


“Science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated.” Those were the words uttered by pioneering British scientist Rosalind Franklin, who firmly believed that the pursuit of science should be (26) ______ to all.

As a woman working in the first half of the 20th century, Franklin’s contributions to some of the greatest scientific discoveries of our time – including the structure of DNA – were sadly (27) ______ in her lifetime. One of my proudest moments in my role as universities and science minister was being able to go some way to redress this injustice last month, by unveiling the new Mars rover named after this brilliant British scientist.

Today, on International Women’s Day, it is only right that we recognise the important work of female scientists like Franklin and seek to honour her memory by inspiring more women and girls to follow in her footsteps.

More than 60 years after Franklin’s death, we are (28) ______ living in a different world, where women play an important part in every echelon of our society – not least in science, innovation, higher education and research.

UK universities are world leaders when it comes to advancing and (29) ______ gender equality. The Athena SWAN charter, initially established to improve the representation of women in scientific disciplines in higher education, now has 145 members. It has also expanded to promote gender equality in multiple disciplines – including the arts, social sciences, humanities, business and law.

In the past decade, we have seen a (30) ______ increase in England in the number of women accepted on to full-time undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering and maths (Stem subjects). And in the last academic year, women (31) ______ for more than half of all Stem postgraduates at UK universities. The government is taking further steps to improve women’s representation in science and has today awarded nine inspiring women £50,000 to develop inventions to tackle the challenges and seize the opportunities we face as a society. From new materials to cut down on plastics pollution to special devices to improve posture and comfort for wheelchair users, these women are at the forefront of creating the new technology for tomorrow.

This is significant progress, but access to higher education is only half of the equation. To have real equality in the sector, we need to ensure talented women are able to progress into the academic and leadership roles they desire, and get the remuneration they deserve.

Data shows us the (32) ______ to success gets harder for women to climb the further up they go. Although women make up the majority of undergraduates in our universities, just under half of academic staff are female. At (33) ______ levels, only a quarter of professors are women, and black women make up less than 2% of all female academic staff.

I welcome the introduction of pro-active strategies like the new initiative at the University of Leicester, which I am visiting today, to increase the number of female professors by 1.5% each year, with the overall goal of having 30% professorships held by women by 2020.

There are also stark differences in pay across grades. The gender pay gap based on median salaries across the sector in 2016-17 was 13.7%, (34) ______ there is still some way to go to ensure women are rising through the ranks to higher grade positions and being paid (35) ______.
