Mark the answers on your answer sheet. Tania Moffat, 21, works in her parents’ clothes shop with her 18-year-old brother, Rufus. This is what she says: As children, we used to fight a lot. Rufus did things like steal my diary and read out bits at dinner, but now we‟ve put our childhood differences behind us. Of course, we still argue but these days, because we share an interest in fashion and have common aims for the business, our arguments are positive. Rufus and I manage the shop, while our parents design the clothes we sell. We are often photographed wearing the clothes. Rufus likes to wear things that are unusual or shocking and people come into the shop just to see what he‟s got on that day. He could become a model in the future. Our parents got married and had me when they were still teenagers and have brought us up in a free way. When I was a schoolgirl, they often suggested I forgot about my homework and went out instead. When I decided to leave school at 16 and come and work in the shop, they supported me. They knew I had a lot to offer the company, and now they say they couldn‟t manage without Rufus and me. Their attitude means we all enjoy ourselves, both at home and at work. 1 Tania is trying to A recommend a good place to buy clothes. B describe what it‟s like working in her family‟s business. C encourage young people to leave school and start work. 2 The reader can find out from the article A Tania‟s attitude to marriage. B Tania‟s opinion of today‟s fashion. C Tania‟s feelings about her job. 3 Tania thinks about her brother that he A does things just to make her angry. B is easier to get on with than before. C should pay more attention to his clothes. 4 Tania‟s father is A a fashion designer. B a photographer. C a manager of the shop. 5 Tania thinks her parents A have never been strict. B advised her wrong things. C spoilt their children. 6 The best title for the article will be A WHY WORKING WITH YOUR BROTHER IS A MISTAKE B HOW TO AVOID ARGUING WITH YOUR PARENTS C HOW TO START FAMILY BUSINESS Part 2 Look at the statements 7-14 about university life. Read the text below to decide if each statement is correct or incorrect. If it is correct, mark A; if it is incorrect, mark B on your answer sheet. 7 This information is helps students who arrive late after the start of the university term. 8 The Welfare Office is usually closed in the morning. 9 A list of flats available for rent can be seen in the Welfare Office. 10 University identity cards are given in the Library. 11 You can save money on books if you have a student card. 12 You should ask older students for advice about where to buy books. 13 Having all your meals in the canteen is the cheapest way to eat. 14 Lots of students want to join the cookery class. NEW STUDENTS' NEWSLETTER 19th September WELCOME! As a new student, you've arrived two days before term starts to look around and get settled in before your course begins and the place fills up. Here is some information to make all that a bit easier (we hope!). The Student Welfare Office is normally open from 4 p.m. till 8 p.m. Monday to Friday. Today and tomorrow it will be open all day, from about 9 a.m. This is the place to come if you have any problems, for example about money (not yet, surely?) or accommodation (we have a list of rental agencies and also advertise any rooms which become available in the university hostels at the end of term). We also give out university identity cards which you need to join the library and which allow you to get discounts at a number of local shops (including bookshops) and places of entertainment, such as clubs and cinemas. On Monday and Tuesday of next week, second-year students will be running a book sale in the canteen from 10-3. Many of the books on your first-year reading list will be available and we suggest you should look here first before spending too much on new books. The university canteen (open from 7.30 a.m. till 7.30 p.m.) sells hot meals, fairly cheaply, as well as snacks and drinks, but it'll save you money to cook at least some of your own meals. There is a basic cookery course starting next week (run by students for students, so it's really practical). If you don't know how to boil an egg, this is for you. It's always full, so get your name on the list in the welfare office NOW! Part 3 Read the article about letter writing. Six sentences have been removed from the article. Choose from the sentences A-G the one which fits each gap 15-20. There is one extra sentence you do not need to use. Mark the answers on your answer sheet. DROP ME A LINE! In our fast world of phones, fax machines and computers, the old-fashioned art of letter writing is at risk of disappearing altogether. Yet, to me, there is something about receiving a letter that cannot be matched by any other form of communication. There is the excitement of its arrival, the pleasure of seeing who it is from and, finally, the enjoyment of the contents. Letter writing has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. It probably began with the little notes I would write to my mother. My mother, also, always insisted I wrote my own thank-you letters for Christmas and birthday presents. 15 _____ When I left home at 18 to train as a doctor in London, I would write once a week, and so would my mother. Occasionally my father would write and it was always a joy to receive his long, amusing letters. 16 _____ Of course, we also made phone calls but it is the letters I remember most. There were also letters from my boyfriends. In my youth I seemed to attract people who had to work or study away at some time and I was only able to stay in touch by correspondence. But instead of harming the relationships, letter writing seemed to improve them. I found that I could often express myself more easily in writing than by talking. I love the letters that come with birthday or Christmas cards. 17 _____ And it‟s better still when it‟s an airmail envelope with beautiful stamps. My overseas letters arrive from Mangala in Sri Lanka, from someone I trained with over 20 years ago, and I have a pen-friend in Australia and another in Vancouver. Then there‟s the lady who writes to me from France. If we hadn‟t started talking in a restaurant on the way home from holiday, if my husband hadn‟t taken her photo and if I hadn‟t asked her for her address, I would never have been able to write to her. 18 _____ As it is, we now have a regular correspondence. I can improve my French (she speaks no English); we have stayed at her home twice and she has stayed with us. My biggest letter-writing success, however, came this summer, when my family and I stayed with my American pen-friend in Texas. 19 _____ Everyone was amazed that a correspondence could last so long. The local press even considered the correspondence worth reporting on the front page. I am pleased that my children are carrying on the tradition. Like my mother before me, I insist they write their own thank-you letters. My daughter writes me little letters, just as I did to my mother. 20 _____ I strongly urge readers not to allow letter writing to become another „lost art‟. A Most of the letters from home contained just everyday events concerning my parents and their friends. B We had been corresponding for 29 years but had never met. C It didn‟t matter how short or untidy they were as long as they were letters. D Notes are appreciated, but how much better to have a year‟s supply of news! E Poor handwriting can spoil your enjoyment of letter. F She and my son have pen-friends of their own in Texas, organized by my pen-friend. G More important, if she hadn‟t replied, we would be the poorer for it. PAPER 2 LISTENING Part 1 Listen to a woman talking to a policeman. For questions 21-26, choose the correct answer A, B or C.
