IELTS Essay Volume 8 Part 2 Topic 161-EV8P2T161

Schools offer a wide range of courses such as physical education, music, economics, philosophy, math, Englishgeography, physics and history. Among all these subjects, which one do you think is the most important and which one is the least important?

To decide which subject is the most important and which is the least important is a daunting task. Each and every subject has its own importance which cannot be under estimated but if I have to choose one I would choose physical education as the most important one and philosophy as the least important one.

Physical education is the most important for all students at school level. These classes improve students’ health, now and in the future. They burn calories, and this helps them to maintain a healthy weight. The classes’ regular exercise develops good habits for the present and the future. People who exercise as children are more likely to continue exercising when they’re adults. This reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other serious illnesses.

Physical education also improves students’ mental health. It can be difficult to sit in class all day. Students can exercise and then relax after their physical activity. This helps them to feel happier and more comfortable at school. The classes also include activities that help with stress reduction. Walking, stretching, and yoga are just a few of the exercises that reduce stress. When they have good mental health, they can do well in other subjects also.

The students’ favourite part of physical education classes may be the opportunity to communicate with their classmates. They enjoy talking to their friends while they play games. The students also learn how to work in teams. Teamwork is an important skill that they will use when playing sports or even at their jobs in the future.

As for the least important course, I have to say that I think philosophy is not so important after all. This is a subject which can be there at the higher level for those who want to study it. That is why, perhaps, in our Indian school curricula philosophy has no place.

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that, although all subjects are important, I believe that physical education is the most important and philosophy is the least important.

(for those who want to write maths as the most important)

“Maths is in everything”

“Maths is the something for which the world was written”

Importance of maths

No single day can be spent without encountering some form of mathematics. From page numbers, to prices to today’s date, maths puts things together and enables us to compare quantitatively.

To survive financially, you must use maths to allocate your resources – e.g. invest in business or stock exchange.

Maths applications in the study of science – tracking the orbits of planets and stars in galaxy cannot be done without numerical comparison.

Every discipline from archaeology to zoology benefits from the study of maths.
