A number of individuals favor this ranking because of its advantages.To begin with, without these ranks, it is impossible for people to make a direct comparison between different colleges.In addition, it is this ranking that enables China to build up a system of assessing higher education and to enhance its overall development.Even so, others hold the opposite view that university ranking carries some doubts.First, ranking all universities means a great amount of time and human resources; however, the quality and authority is not as satisfactory as expected.Second, what worries many experts is that some colleges may focus too much eyesight on ranking itself, ignoring the needs of students.By and large, the advantage derived the annual university ranking far outweigh the disadvantages.
An effective ranking will bring colleges motivation, arouses their enthusiasm to strive, and helps China to enhance higher education.However, it is advisable for this ranking to be scientific, practical and impartial.
Now,it is generally acknowledged that competence is getting fiercer and fiercer. Therefore,going to a good university is the premise of getting a good job and wining inthe competitive society. As a result, university ranking becomes much popularthan before. We can also see many ads on the internet which commend a specialuniversity ranked first. And universities try to make themselves bigger andstronger to get a better ranking.
Differentpeople have different opinions on universities ranking. The reason why mostpeople oppose to it can be complicated. To start with, university ranking makesgood universities superior but put the general universities into a worsecondition. What’s more, it would do harm to the development of theuniversities. The governmental subsidy is mostly used on superior universities,while the infamous universities won’t get it. The last but not the least, theexcellent future of a student is not depended on the university, but to thestudent himself .In a sense, university ranking is not meaningful.
Asfar as I’m concerned, I don’t agree to it. Each university has its own benefitsand culture, so that we can’t evaluate a university simply by its ranking. Soit’s better to stop ranking university.
