Sample task 2

Read the following paragraphs which present contradictory views. Write a passage about the issue, clearly stating your opinion and explaining your reasons. You should write about 500 words.

A poll conducted this year by zhaopin.com, a job-hunting service, reports that 6.3% of 2015 college graduates hope to start their own companies. This has almost doubled the figure for last year. Driven by this trend as well as encouraged by the Chinese government’s preferential policies for startups (创业公司), many college seniors are facing the dilemma as to whether to try to establish a business or to look for a job upon graduation.

Some people, mostly entrepreneurs-to-be, claim that with their passion, openness and creativity, as well as their knowledge, graduates can bring their potential into full play when building a startup. Others argue that new graduates, who have long been in the ivory tower of education, will find launching a business too difficult. Apart from finding the initial investment, operating a startup also requires the managerial experience and social connections which can only be gained through years of work in a mature enterprise.
