History and literature are more important subjects for students than science and mathematics.
Although, I believe that every subject have its own importance and necessary to know, however, when it comes to science and mathematics, I have more inclination towards both of the subjects. Students can’t deny the importance of history and literature in their life. A lot of students really like history and literature and thinks these are more important subjects than science and mathematics. I strongly disagree that history and literature are more important subjects for students than science and mathematics because of some specific reasons.
First, today’s era is a technology era and for understanding them you will have to study science and math. For instance, internet, computers, cellular phones and even television are the most important inventions of science and for understanding them we will have to study science. If you don’t know how the early civilization occurs, how a language evolved, it doesn’t affect your life much.
In addition to previous one, mathematics and science are more career oriented subjects. If you are not good in mathematics, you can’t qualify any professional exam. For instance, everybody including me wants to earn good money, better life and HAVE all kind of luxuries. Therefore you will have to have good professional career like engineering, medical and other business administrative.
Finally, in real world you can’t survive without science and math. Your all regular basic need depend on machines; for instance, your car, motorcycle and air conditioner. These days people want to invest money in different share markets and have to aware of economy but without good knowledge of math you can’t be expert of investment. Even a lot of subjects’ basics are science and math. For example, economy, finance, pharmacy and many other subjects based on these two subjects. So you must have to acknowledge the importance of science and mathematics.
To summarize, I strongly disagree that it is important for students to study history and literature than mathematics and science.
