for
mathematics (40. coach) her at home. Ruth
also (41. like) history, geography and (42. play) the piano. The
enrolment of ten-year-old mathematical genius in Oxford
University creates proble ms both for Ruth and her lecturers. A specia l program (43. draw)
up her in which study (44. combine) with elements of
play.
Ruth Lawrence is not without ambition: she (45. dream) of becoming a doctor
of sciences and professor of mathematics.
Part 3: Read the text and decide which is the best word A, B, C, or D to complete the gap
46-53. An example is given (0).
I have learned, often the hard (0) way, that there are a few simple rules about how to
make life
easier both before and after the journey. First of all, you must always check and double-check
departure times. This is absolutely essential. It is amazing how few people do this really carefully.
Once I arrived at the airport few minutes before ten. My secretary had got the t icket for me and I
thought she had said that the plane left at 10.50. I walked calmly to the departure gate, thinking
I (46) had a litt le t ime to spare. I hadn’t bothered to
take a good look at the ticket. The clerk at the desk told me politely but firmly that the departure
time was 10.15 and that, (47) to international regulations, the flight was
‘now closed’.
Secondly, you should re member that even in this (48) of credits cards, it is still important
to have at least a little of the local currency with you when you arrive in a country. This can be
absolutely essential if you are flying to a place few tourists normally visit. A few years ago, I
was sent to Tulsa, Oklahoma. I flew there from London via Dallas with very little t ime to (49)
planes in between. I arrived there
at midnight and the bank at the airport was closed. The only (50) to get to the hotel
was by taxi and, since I had no American dollars, I offered to pay in British pounds instead.
‘L isten, buddy. I only take real money!’ the drive r said angrily. Luckily, I was able to (51)

a few dollars from a clerk at the hotel, but it was very
embarrassing.
The third and the last rule is to find out as much as you can about the weather at your (52)
befo re you leave. It may be very different
from the weather at home. I feel sorry for some of my colleagues who travel in heavy suits
and raincoats in March or April, when it is st ill fairly cool in places like London, Berlin or New
York, to places like Athens, Ro me or Madrid, where it is already beginning to get quite warm
during the day. Few people understand just how important it is to have a right sort of clothes
with you in these days o f rapid air (53) .
0. A. path B. road C. way D. street
46. A. still B. yet C. then D. already
47. A. regarding B. relating C. according D. referring
48. A. period B. time C. term D. age
49. A. exchange B. change C. transfer D. alter
50. A. way B. manner C. path D. route
51. A. borrow B. lend C. gain D. beg
52. A. goal B. aim C. objective D. destination
53. A. travel B. trips C. journeys D. voyages

III.
READ ING
Part 1: You are going to read a teacher’s memories of a class she taught. For questions
54-60, choose the answer (a, B, C, or D) which you think fits best according to the text.
Halliday’s writing leaned very much back to the left. He was the only pupil in the class who
wrote
in this way. He was a nuisance in poetry lessons as he would giggle and make faces and could
never be persuaded to read aloud. His silly behaviour made me believe that he didn’t like poetry.
However, when I gave class a test in which they had to write down some poetry they had learned
by heart, Halliday seemed to know the most.
Halliday had a special dislike for art and I allo wed him to read during this period. He
never volunteered for drama and refused to make a speech. Football was the one thing at whic h
he excelled, but the sports teacher decided that he did not assert himself enough and he made
another boy captain. This boy - his name was John Jones - could hardly read or write. All
attempts to make him work failed, but he captained the team with amazing skill.
I remember an occasion when he led our school eleven out of the changing rooms for a
cup match against our fiercest rivals, the team from nearby Winterton School. The Winterton
girls’ hockey team had already beaten our own girls’ team and this - plus their excellent start
to the season – had raised their
morale to a fearso me level. Even so, John played like a true professional. Our only scorer, he
made good use o f Halliday’s passes and scored a goal for every two that the Winterton
players could manage between them. Though Kingston lost, the match was a triumph for Captain
Jones!
In spite of all this, the pupil who impressed me most in the end was David Halliday. He
gained my admiration on a day when I had his class for art. They came into the hut shouting and
pushing and I sent them out again and told them they would not have a lesson until they walked
in properly. They thought it was fun to waste as much time as possible, and they jeered and
cheered outside the hut. I let them go on for a minute. Suddenly the noise stopped and in marched
Halliday.
‘They are all right now’, he said. ‘I’ve got them lined up.’ I looked outside and sure
enough the pupils o f class 2D were arranged like well drilled soldiers; they were in order of size
and in perfect line – so still I could see them shivering in the chilly air. ‘Walk in quietly’,
Halliday commanded. They obeyed their superior officer and the lesson began. Halliday himself,
as usual, refused to work. ‘Can I just sit and have a nap?’ he asked. After the help he had given
me I could hardly refuse.
54. Halliday stood out from the other pupils because of his .
A. beautiful handwriting B. bad behaviour C. love of poetry D. skill as a footballer
55. Halliday failed to be chosen as captain of the football team because
.
A. he was thought to be lazy.
B. he was thought to be a poor leader.
C. Jones was bad at other things and needed
encouragement. D. Jones was better at scoring goals
when under pressure.
56. Who felt really confident at the start of the match?
A. the Winterton girls’ hocke y team B. the Winterton football team
C. the Kinston team, led by John Jones D. John Jones and David Halliday
57. The match was a triumph for John Jones because .
A. his team won. B. he scored all Kingston’s
goals. C. he made good use of Halliday’s passes.
D. he was chosen as Kingston’s captain in stead of Halliday.
58. After being turned out of the hut, class 2D started behaving themselves because...
A. the teacher refused to let them in until they did. B. they had to obey their superior
officer. C. David Halliday sorted them out. D. they wanted to get in out of the
cold.
59. David Halliday’s teacher .
A. admired his memory for poetry. B. admired his strong
personalit y. C. realized that he deserved to be captain of the football team.
D. realized that he deserved to read or rest during art lessons.
60. Halliday wanted a nap because .
A. he hated art. B. he thought he deserved it.
C. he was lazy. D. he had worked so hard organizing the pupils.
Part 2: For questions 61-70, read the text below. Use the word given in capitals at the end
of each line to form a word that fits in the space in the same line. There is an example at the
beginning (0)
There is nothing to match the (0. WARM) warmth and cosiness o f a genuine log-fire. The
luxury
and sheer (61. RELAX) of sitting back and watching the progress of fire and flame is
almost
(62. BELIEVE) . A log-fire appeals to all the senses. Yes, you can (63.
ACTUAL)
taste and smell the (64. FRESH) of newly cut timber – and then enjoy the
sight and sound of the minor (65. EXPLODE) as it burns.
Logs hiss for a while before they (66. FINAL) _ burst in the heat, so the mo ment
of
(67. DESTROY) comes as a climax after lots of suspense!
All o f this is very (68. DRAMA) , and the thing that makes it more enjo yable
than
ever is that one’s feet are up and one’s whole body is being bathed in tropical heat. It’s a (69.
MARVEL)
experience!
