Please review my essay. I Am taking TOEFL next month.

It is more important for students to understand ideas and concepts than it is for them to learn facts.

Like a coin that has two sides every debatable topic has two aspects namely the advantage and disadvantage. No doubt the given topic has points strong enough to debate but I would definitely go with the utter importance for students to understand ideas and concepts rather than just learning the facts.
For me learning facts is just like by hearting something without taking into consideration the importance of the subject or its applicability in practical life. By understanding ideas and concepts of a particular matter or a subject one can easily apply those ideas or use them in daily life. For instance one can score good in theory by learning facts and jotting them down in the paper but what about the time when you are asked to explain about its applicability. Let’s take an example of an accounts student. The student in question does know all the accounting standards and has learned them by heart but what is the use of learning when he won’t be able to use or rather apply them while doing the real accounts of a financial or any concerned organization. Well this was just a way to show how understanding ideas and concepts is necessary because that way compels an individual to question things that arises in mind when a certain concept does not yields proper results.
Said that, I assume learning facts can be essential at times for the reason that some exceptions for instance, in grammar of various languages or assumptions in economics or the historical dates or even the names of geographical importance need to be learned. They just cannot be understood,they have to be learned or the facts are to be taken into consideration.
But if looked through a broader perspective understanding concepts would always seem prudential and essential according to me. Because learning facts won't always serve while understanding concepts would attribute a better perspective in any area.
