VI. Read the following passage and choose the best answer for each question.

It is sometimes very difficult to decide which career to choose when you leave school. British students are helped by careers teachers, who inform them about different careers, the qualifications needed and try to help them make up their minds. Mr Hemmings, a careers teacher as well as a History teacher, talks about his experience.

‘I’ve been a careers teacher for around five years and, on the whole, I’ve found it a rewarding experience. Our students have careers lessons once a week for the fourth and the fifth years (15 and 16 years old). My task consists of explaining as accurately as possible the qualifications required for each job, as well as the type of work and personal skills involved.

Advising teenagers can be rather difficult – some youngsters have no idea at all of what they want to do, or of what the real world outside school really is. They come to me and say ‘I don’t like routine nine-to-five jobs… I’d like something exciting that pays well…’ What can I say? That we’re running out of exciting jobs? But they usually end up facing reality and come down to their senses after a while…

Anyway here in school we only give them a piece of advice according to what we know about their favourite and weakest subjects, pastimes and personality. But if you ask me, things are happening so quickly around here, with our economy in the dumps that sometimes you just don’t know what to say. A few days ago I asked a fifteen- year-old boy what job he had in mind and he replied ‘I haven’t any plans… You see, Sir, I don’t know what new jobs will replace today’s’. What could I say?

1. What do careers teachers in Britain help students?

A. Inform them about different careers

B. Tell them the qualifications needed for careers

C. Help them make up their minds

D. All of the above

2. How has Mr Hemmings found his job as a careers teacher?

A. An easy job B. a rewarding experience

C. A stressful job D. a challenging experience

3. How often do British students have careers lessons?

A. Once a week B. twice a week

C. Once a fortnight D. twice a month

4. Why is it difficult to advise teenagers?

A. Teenagers have no idea of what exciting jobs are.

B. Many youngsters never go outside of their houses.

C. Some of them don’t know what careers they want.

D. Many teenagers only like doing jobs that pay well.

5. Why hasn’t the student got any plans about his future job?

A. There will be many new jobs in the future.

B. His parents haven’t told him about his future job.

C. He is too young to think about it.

D. He is busy studying his favourite subjects.

VII. Finish each of the following sentences in such a way that it is as similar as possible in meaning to the original sentence. Use the word given and other words as necessary. Do not change the form of the given word.

VIII. Sample

I would like to become a journalist and in my opinion the qualities necessary for a good journalist are resourceful, critical and objective. Firstly, a good journalist is supposed to be resourceful in order to access credible sources of information and so as to gain access to all important events. Secondly, in order to separate truth from truth in order to meet the goals of certain individuals a journalist has to be critical about the information he or she receives and needs to analyze it thoroughly before putting his pen to paper. Finally, a journalist must be objective. He is supposed to put aside personal beliefs and should not let his emotions cloud his judgment. He should maintain the honesty of his claims supported by evidence and is not supposed to allow his personal prejudices get the better of him. In conclusion, to become a good journalist at least I should be resourceful, critical and objective. (156 words)
