参考答案: Marks or Abilities
   There is a widespread remark saying "Experience without learning is better than learning without experience." However, people have different opinions on the tasks of college students. Many students believe that marks are very important.For one thing, they consider getting good marks as their primary tasks to study and learn from teachers and textbooks. Also, they seldom take part in social activities for fear that those activities will affect their studies. 
   However, some students think it is more important to develop one's own practical abilities. In their opinions, students should not be confined to learning merely from textbooks, and they should also learn from outside of those books. What's more, they think it is of primary importance to develop their practical abilities. 
   As far as I am concerned, we should first try to study hard, and then to develop our abilities. Study is undoubtedly our primary task, but we should not neglect practical abilities either. When we enter the society, we need various abilities to achieve success. In a word, the sound foundation of knowledge along with practical abilities is essential for us to succeed in the future.
