There is always an argument that extracurricular activities are not so much important in a student’s life. Schools emphasize the importance of extracurricular activities, but sometimes it can be difficult for students to see just how the extra time and dedication will benefit them. From improving academic to having a wider social circle, extracurricular activities can actually do much more than you can think. You might worry that participating in extracurriculars may take away too much time from your schoolwork, thus hurting your grades. However, extracurricular activities can actually improve your grades and your outlook on school in general. Participating in activities you are passionate about can increase your brain function, help you concentrate and manage your time better, all of which contribute to higher grades. High endurance sports, for example, will train you to focus and build stamina in the face of intense difficulty. This gives you an advantage when it comes to studying and taking exams. Furthermore, extracurriculars allow you to pursue interests outside of a standardized academic context. If you are a flair for mathematics, for example, you might become a member of the school’s math honor society program. This decision could help you decide if math will be something to pursue in higher education. You can also use these activities to explore interests you have never encountered, exposing you to a more diverse range of interests in you. Moreover, extracurriculars are not solely about imparting stronger professional skills and supplementing education. These programs are also fun and offer you the opportunity to spend time with others of similar interests and potentially build friendships outside of your usual circle. You can meet friends from different social groups by joining a sports team, student government or debate. For the facts above, there is no denying that extracurricular activities benefit you in many ways, so it is important. Therefore, being involved in extracurricular activity is a good idea. The writer of the text assumes that students who are involved in extracurricular activity ... than those who aren’t.
