The dons are disposed to safeguard their firm positions disputing that the recruits have "it-hardly-needs-a-commentary" dire necessity of this remedial course. The freshers, in their round, dare challenge their tutors' emphatic conviction demonstrating their willingness to scrap this "baby course for silly bullies" or at least, its status of a core subject.
I would personally admire to join the mainstream and to fling away an advantage of taking it up without any misgiving to dumb down. Needless to say, I have my own fool-proof reasons to cast doubt on the efficacy of such a course. Here is a selection of them.
Firstly, I feel free to admit that this course is particularly designed for cyber junkies, people who are addicted to using personal computers, especially the Internet. These are the never-ending hours I dawdled away on surfing the net, combing through vast bodies of information in my futile attempt to compose an essay that will meet all the requirements, brought me to the conclusion that English-composition classes spell the perfect recipe for pure and absolute contentment for those who are obsessed with craving the information that is so tantalizingly available in a global network. Thanks God I do not belong to this type of dataholics. I would prefer to pass my evening away with friends or my dear people or reading a book or an instalment of a glossy magazine.
Secondly, therefore, I claim that slogging away at packing your essay is close to sweating over packing your suit-case. The point is that recently, having made up my mind to pick up on the advice to "read the works of published writers in a wide range of subjects, paying particular attention to the way in which they use their language to express their meaning" (3), I came across a truly thought-provoking article that shared a few tricky tips how to pack a suit-case.

Despite my colossal efforts applied, I keep on arriving at the place of the destination with my crumpled clothes and creased T-shirts. I am continually taken aback, however, at my friend's 'preternatural' capability to have his suit-cases always elaborately packed, although he never stuffs his head with 'packing' details exposed at the article like that one.
The similar situation is sadly expected to be disclosed and observed during English-composition classes. Those who can boast inner propensity for creative composing, will get the hang of the things easily and soon will be profoundly bored by re-copying somebody's else numerous thumb-nail sketches and 'printing out' the endless stream of top-of-scale creative work of their own. On the contrary, a significant proportion of those who lack special aptitude for writing will be intellectually challenged and stretched, indeed. In their case, practicing writing will be like skating on the thin ice, as they will be running all the chances to reduce their potential to compounding different ideas employing hiss-and-miss method. The students will become more preoccupied not how the message is conveyed but how their ultimate aim of making the "composition' tolerable for the don to read is reached. The teacher will turn
