Being an older student

At 32, I have just finished my first year at university. As well as attending lectures regularly, I have had to learn to read books quickly and write long essays.

I decided to go to university after fourteen years away from the classroom. As a secretary, although I was earning a reasonable amount of money, I was bored doing something where I hardly had to think. I became more and more depressed by the idea that I was stuck in the job. I was jealous of the students at the local university, who looked happy, carefree and full of hope, and part of something that I wanted to explore further.

However, now that I've actually become a student I find it hard to mix with younger colleagues. They are always mistaking me for a lecturer and asking me questions I can't answer. I also feel separated from the lecturers because, although we are the same age, I know so much less than them. But I am glad of this opportunity to study because I know you need a qualification to get a rewarding job, which is really important to me. Unlike most eighteen-year-olds, I much prefer a weekend with my books to one out partying. Then there are the normal student benefits of long holidays and theatre and cinema discounts. I often have doubts about what I'll do after university, but I hope that continuing my education at this late date has been a wise choice.

21. What is the writer trying to do in the text?

A. Help lecturers understand older students.

B. Suggest some good methods for studying.

C. Complain about the attitude of students.

D. Explain her reasons for returning to study.

22. What can a reader find out about the writer from this text?

A. When she left school.

B. What subject she is studying.

C. Where she will work in future.

D. How long her university course is.

23. How did the writer feel about her job as a secretary?

A. Her salary wasn't good enough.

B. It gave her the opportunity to study.

C. It didn't make use of her brain.

D. Her colleagues made her depressed.

24. In her spare time, the writer likes to___________?

A. go out to parties

B. do extra study

C. earn some money

D. travel a lot

25. Which of these sentences describes the writer?

A. She is confident about the future.

B. She gets on well with the other students.

C. She realises the value of a university degree.

D. She finds university life easier than she expected.

A. Bookworm

This shop has used books for all tastes but customers will have to visit in person and look around as Bookworm does not have a website. The best sections are on medicine; cookery and art. These include some rare and expensive books.

B. Bales

This shop is famous for its range of titles, from college textbooks to classic literature, and is known for its peaceful atmosphere. Regular customers come for the excellent cafe with its sofas and armchairs, which stays open until late.

C. Westwood's

There's no room to sit down in this tiny back street bookshop, and the owner is often too busy to chat. On the first floor are children's books and fine art books for collectors. At entrance level there are less expensive general fiction hardbacks.

D. Topping's

You'll only find good-quality used hardback books here on certain subjects. Topping's is run by three experts in art, travel and literature for the young. They are happy to chat and advise customers. The shelves are well-organised, and books can also be ordered from the shop's website.

E. Scrimshaw's

Regal also has an efficient online ordering service plus comfortable sofas and freshly made coffee, and is open during office hours.

G. Holt's

H. Wenlock's

This prize-winning bookshop is noted for its wide selection of titles. Fiction is downstairs, nonfiction upstairs under the ancient roof of this 15th century building. The book club welcomes new members to discuss a different novel one evening each month.

By Michael McCarthy 

Plastic bags are one of the greatest problems of the consumer society - or to be more precise, of the throwaway society. First introduced in the United States in 1957, and into the rest of the world by the late 1960s, they have been found so convenient that they have come to be used in massive numbers. In the world as a whole, the annual total manufactured now probably exceeds a trillion - that is, one million billion, or 1,000,000,000,000,000.

According to a recent study, whereas plastic bags were rarely seen at sea in the late eighties and early nineties, they are now being found almost everywhere across the planet, from Spitsbergen in the Arctic to the South Atlantic close to Antarctica.

They are among the 12 items of rubbish most often found in coastal clean-ups.(37)___ Windblown plastic bags are so common in  Africa that a small industry has appeared: harvesting bags and using them to make hats and other items, with one group of people collecting 30,000 per month. In some developing countries they are a major nuisance in blocking the drainage systems of towns and villages.

What matters is what happens to them after use. Enormous numbers end up being buried or burnt, which is an enormous waste of the oil products which have gone into their manufacture (38)____ Turtles mistake them for their jellyfish food and choke on them; birds mistake them for fish with similar consequences; dolphins have been found with plastic bags preventing them breathing properly.

The wildlife film-maker Rebecca Hosking was shocked by the effects of the bags on birds on the Pacific island of Midway. She found that two-fifths of the 500,000 albatross chicks born each year die, the vast majority from swallowing plastic that their parents have mistakenly brought back as food. (39)____ Many local residents and shopkeepers joined in, and the idea of getting rid of them completely soon spread to other towns and villages.

Although some people remain unconvinced, it does seem possible that the entire country could eventually become plastic-bag free. Who could have imagined half-a-century ago that our public places would one day all become cigarette-smoke free? Or that we would all be using lead free petrol? Who would have thought even a decade ago, come to that, that about two-thirds of us would by now be actively involved in recycling? (40)____

What is needed is a general change in consumer attitudes, towards the habit of using re-usable shopping bags. Older people will remember how this used to be entirely normal as every household had a "shopping bag", a strong bag which was used to carry items bought in the daily trip to the shops. (41)___Today, many of us tend to drive to the supermarket once a week and fill up the car with seven days' worth of supplies, for which plastic bags, of course, are fantastically useful. It's a hard habit to break.

However, there has already been a big drop in plastic bag use, partly because the leading supermarkets and other shopkeepers are making a major effort to help us give up the habit, with a whole variety of new ideas. (42)___ It is clear that habits are starting to change, reusaone bags are more visible than they were even two years ago.

Many believe there should be a tax on plastic bags. and the governments of a number of countries are considering the idea. What people have in mind is the example of Ireland, where a tax Of €0.22 was introduced on all plastic bags, the first of its kind in the world. (43)___In addition, all the money from the new tax is used for environmental clean-up projects.

A. Major changes in public opinion and behavior can certainly occur.

B. On land they are everywhere, too.

C. These range from cheap 'bags for life' offers to bag-free check-outs.

D. Worse still, billions get into the environment, especially the ocean environment, where they become a terrible threat to wildlife.

E. But there was a very different pattern of household shopping then: the purchase of a much smaller number of items, on a daily basis, after a walk to small, local shops.

F. She realised then that it was too late to do anything about this man-made disaster.

G. This quickly brought about a quite amazing reduction of 90 per cent, from 1.2 billion bags a year to fewer than 200,000 and an enormous increase in the use of cloth bags.

H. As a result, she started a movement to turn her home town into the first community in the country to be free of plastic bags.

Read the text below and think of ONE word that best fits each gap. Write the words in your answer sheet.


The most extreme weather conditions experienced in Antarctica are associated (44)______ 1 blizzards. These are simply strong winds with falling snow or, more commonly, snow that is picked up and pushed along the ground by the wind. Blizzards may last for days at (45)_______ time, and in some cases it can be almost impossible for people to see. It is not unusual (46)______ objects only about a metre or two away to become unrecognisable. Scientists doing research in the area are then confined to their tents or caravans. We think of blizzards (47)______ extremely cold, while in fact temperatures in the Antarctic are usually higher than normal during a blizzard. Major blizzards of several days in length occur more frequently in some locations than in others. (48)______ may be eight or ten such blizzards in any particular place (49)______ an annual basis. They often cause considerable damage, so that any scientific buildings or equipment constructed in this region must be specially made to give as (50)______protection as possible.
