Qualities to be a good and plete student

Topic: "What are important qualities of a good student. Use specific details and examples to explain why they are important."


When I was young I used to be taught to work hark to earn knowledge and get highest score to be a good student at school.
Gradually, I found that a good student have to be not only a wide-knowledge bookworm but also an active person in community and a well-prepared worker for the future.
An ideal student considers book as his best friend. He is hard working and honest. He co-operates with others. He never uses unfair means to pass his exam. A good student is the good citizen of the future on which a nation can be proud. A good student is the one who balances his studies with sports and extra-curricular activities and tries to be the best in all.

The first and foremost important quality of a good student is, of course, hard working. We can't have a good result in academic success without training and effort. Vladimir I. Lenin claimed that "learn, learn more, learn forever", that show us the importance of learning in our whole livetime regardless of the age. Knowledge is not inborn but experienced, not unchaged but keep-up-date, and not easy but hard to earn, and those who don't have willing enough to face challenges and those who don't have passion for working would not come to achieve their goals and succeed in their lives.
You need to pay attention in a class. Don't start chatting with your peers/friends when the teacher turns their back to you. Even better; don't associate with distracting people. You should realize that the people in your class play an important role in how everybody progresses. However, if you are a good student you will do better and achieve your goals. Your friends will be there for you at that time, if they are trustful and of a good reputation. At home, study and do your homework in a place that doesn't make you sleep. It is advisable to have a dedicated study table or desk. Don't do your study work on the bed or in front of the TV, radio, stereo, etc. That would be pointless because you are meant to be thinking about your studies.

The next quality is active in community. A good student should be highly appriciated not only by his academic success but by his social activities as well. In other words, a good person should be measured not only by what is he doing well for himself but also by what is he contributing for community.
Student is a person who learns and for this purpose, he visits schools, colleges, universities and other institutes. A person’s life is a big school itself on which we learn at every step.

In addition, an active student means a comminicative skillful person in life and thus he is widening the chances to make friends with everybody around him and this is obviously a good thing we always want to, so that his college-life should be more fun and his confidence increasingly grow up.

Last but not least quality of a good student is well-prepared for the future.
To become a good student, you need to get motivated! Motivation can come from seeing the situation of many poor children around the world who are not lucky enough to get a proper education. This is a good thing to keep in mind when you find yourself not wanting to attend class or study at home. Another reason to get motivated to study is that you will enjoy a better quality of life as an educated person. You can go to educational websites, like this one, and surf them with interest. You must not force yourself to study, as this will make learning a chore and you will not feel like even opening your books. You will have many academically good students in your courses. Try becoming friends with them (or encourage your current friends to be better students), and you'll be immersed in an academic environment which will help you feel motivated!

All student is taught to have ambitious and to keep on high dream, yet he should know how to let dream meets reality, and he should be practical and realistic because life is not fair and every step to success takes time and patience.
A good student maintains good work habits, follows all directions, and has a positive attitude towards learning. These attributes are the key to not only succeeding in school, but also succeeding in life. Good work habits ensure that all assignments are completed and turned in on time, while following directions affords the student a positive relationship with the teacher. Meanwhile, a positive attitude towards learning shows the instructor that the student appreciates the class and the material being taught. A good student knows that being positive, following directions and keeping good habits will please teachers and make it easier for the student to achieve good grades.

All student have to do right now from school is a good preparation for every step with a careful plan and always keep in mind that failure is one thing that he should have to face and overcome to gain experiences and to achieve goals.
What is the main characteristic of a good student? A good student must have a huge desire and passion to learn and explore something new. Everything would indeed seem very easy and enjoyable if we think of school as a place for discovering our self as person not as a frustrating place where we are always pressured by a tremendous amount of work. Furthermore, a good student must be punctual, organized, and know how to develop self-discipline. For instance, he or she must always come to class and the assignments and projects on time. Developing a good time-management and self-discipline is, in fact, a part of professional development for students and directly related to their success. In addition, a good student must be active and be polite. A good student would actively participate in the class discussions and would not hesitate to ask questions to his or her teachers. In addition, a good student would also always listen to the teachers and never interrupt when the teachers are talking or explaining something. Other aspects of a good student are honesty and consistency. A good student should be academically honest in all aspects of their schoolwork. For example, he or she would never cheat on tests or presents the work done by others as if it were his or her own (plagiarizes). Lastly, consistency is very critical in the process of learning since it helps students to achieve their academic goals.

In conclusion, a good student should have all qualities that mentioned above, and even more other quality to be a good and complete student. A hark working student tells us his passion; an active student tells us his social responsibilities; and a well-prepared student tells us his abilities.
Another way to be a good student is to enjoy school life. Every teacher in the world wants to see hard-working students, but they also want to see a student who enjoys school life and an active student. An active student does not mean funny or athletic student. Active students are the ones who like to be a part of the school society. Active students are mostly involved with activities; for example, sports, clubs or school related organizations. However, it does not stop there. Students try to be a leader from their activities, and they want to show some kind of leadership quality. It is the most obvious evidence which shows how active this person is.

Every student should have all of these qualities to be a good student.
The first and foremost important quality of a good student is, of course, hard working.

^This is a lame way of introducing a point. Also, the sentence needs revision because it is wrong.

Knowledge is not inborn but experienced, not unchaged but keep-up-date, and not easy but hard to earn, and those who don't have willing enough to face challenges and those who don't have passion for working would not come to achieve their goals and succeed in their lives.

^Why are you going off topic and making general statements.

*I read your essay. Your grammar in many sections is very weak and therefore, your sentences are clumsily expressed.
He does not takes short cuts towards the tasks of his studies but always follows a thorough approach and keeps his eye on the upcoming challenges of his field of learning. He tries to prepare himself for those future challenges by having a close understanding of the boundaries and limitations of his subject.

Also, I do not think that the 'I am going to list things by paragraph. So firstly, secondly, and last of all' is an effective way of writing essays these days.

Your essay needs to be worked on. Focus on grammar revision and your means of expressing yourself in your writing.
Most of students think respect is listening to what teacher says, but there are many things that students can do besides listening. Students can pay attention and doing what teacher says. Also, they can be an honest student. It shows respect toward anyone in school. For example, one of my friends never missed his home works, class works, and projects. He does not get a high grade, but most of his teachers like him. In addition, being ready for the next class shows respect. Being ready for the next class seems it is not related to respect; however, some of my school students missed they assignment or writing equipment. If students follow these steps, such as, pay attention, be an honest student, follow what teacher says and be ready for next class, they can easily show respect all day long.

Can you tell us for what purpose you have written this essay. It's listed as an undergraduate admission essay, but I suspect you may have written it for another purpose. Audience and purpose matter. Please tell us who provided the prompt in response to which you wrote this essay.
A good student can have many qualities. They can be polite and attentive, responsible and intelligent, and can take pride in their work while being humble at the same time. However, to be a great student, one must have competent work habits in order to obtain the grades required to be considered a good student. In order to have work habits, one must follow all directions so as to know how to complete the assignments given. A positive attitude helps better receptiveness of the brain and can help improve student-teacher relations. It is always better to have a teacher who is pleased with her students than to have a teacher who cannot stand the sight of her class.

Yeah, this sounds an awful lot like a TOEFL prompt. Also, bear in mind that grammatical mistakes are worse when they alter your meaning. So:

The next quality is active in community

This literally means that there is some quality, possibly dedication or honesty, lets say, that is active in the community.
There are many qualities to being a good student but these are the three that are most important. Firstly you need to be a good time keeper. Secondly you need to be able to have good academic skills in order to keep up with the work and to obtain good grades. Thirdly you need to have a passion for the subject that you are studying.

Whereas, you want to say that willingness to be active in the community is another key quality that successful students possess.
Thanks all of you for your kindly corrections, and I'll rewrite this topic later more careful.
A good student is that who loves his studies and does justice to his book. He considers his studies to be his first priority and tries to make the most of the time available for studies. He always keeps in mind the respect of the books, teachers, fellow students and the building in which he studies. He sits in the class attentively and listens to the teacher carefully. He does not ask any questions unless he is allowed to do so. He never deviates from the topic. After the lecture, he discusses the topic with his fellow students. He never clings to his own point of view and gives serious consideration to their reasoning.

By your comments I realized three important things that I should be improved for a better essay:

- Having a good grammatical base
- Mastering a right style of English writing
- Possessing rich ideas so that I can immediately express whenever I have a topic to work out (Anything else?)

I know this kind of writing is a bit differ from TOEFL's.
A positive attitude towards learning shows enthusiasm at the prospect of learning and is something all good students should possess. A positive attitude increases a student's ability to learn, as it allows the mind to be open to new opinions and possibilities. If a student has a negative attitude, the mind of that student will be closed off to any information that might be important. It is imperative that good students be optimistic and greet every challenge with a smile.

The technique that I have been using to write the essay is taught by the course titled "Writing Academic English" by Alice Oshima, published by Longman. Is the style of a TOEFL essay differ from an academic essay's?

P/S; There aree lots of grammatical mistakes that I should have to revise, includes:

When I was young I used to taught to → When I was little I was told to
In community → In the community
The first and foremost, the next, last but not least quality → Firstly, secondly, lastly

Vladimir I. Lenin claimed that "learn, learn more, learn forever", this show us the importance of learning in our whole lifetime regardless of the age.

I think if you changed it to:

Vladimir I. Lenin's famous quote "learn, learn more, learn forever", shows us the importance of learning in our whole lifetime regardless of the age.

or just

Vladimir I. Lenin's quote "learn, learn more, learn forever", shows us the importance of learning in our whole lifetime regardless of the age.
Thanks jgv115, your help is very meaningful to me. And any other words/sentences should be corrected in my essay?
