Read the passage and choose the best answer.
Education in the future
Education is another area of social life in which information technology is changing the way we
communicate. Today’s college students may not simply sit in a lecture or a library to learn about their field.
Through their computers and the wonders of virtual reality they can participate in lifelike simulated
experiences. Consider the following scenario of the future of education made possible through
developments in information technology.
For children over the age of 10, daily attendance at schools is not compulsory. Some of the older
children attend school only once or twice weekly to get tutorial support or instruction from a teacher. For
the most part, pupils are encouraged to work online from home. Students must complete a minimum
number of study hours per year; however, they may make up these hours by studying at home at times that
suit their family schedule. They can log on early or late in the day and even join live classes in other
countries. In order to ensure that each student is learning adequately, computer software will automatically
monitor the number of hours a week each student studies on-line as well as that students’ learning materials
and assessment activities. Reports will be available for parents and teachers. The software can then identify
the best learning activities and condition for each individual student and generate similar activities. It can
also identify areas of weak achievement and produce special programs adjusted to the students’ needs.

Read the passage and choose the best answer.
It is always thought that women are the second class in the citizen, and men are the first. There is not real
equality of opportunity for men and women. Years ago, people were living in a man-dominated society.
Women had to obey their husbands and fathers absolutely. Women’s place was in the kitchen and women’s
work was household. In many places, women were not even allowed to go to school. Women had no rights,
even the right to choose a husband for them-selves. Men usually occupied high positions in society so they
thought they were more intelligent and important than women. Men considered women their property.
Sometimes, women were mistreated by their husbands and suffered this as a fate. Many parents did not
even want to have female children.
Thanks to the women’ liberation movement, women have nowadays proved that they are equal to men
on every aspect. An average woman has weaker muscles than an average man but she may be as intelligent
as him. Women can do everything that men can, and women can do one thing that no man can: they
produce children.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the questions from number 21 to 30
Since water is the basis of life, composing the greater part of the tissues of all living things, the
crucial problem of desert animals is to survive in a world where sources of flowing water are rare. And
since man’s inexorable necessity is to absorb large quantities of water at frequent intervals, he can scarcely
comprehend that many creatures of the desert pass their entire lives without a single drop. Uncompromising
as it is, the desert has not eliminated life but only those forms unable to withstand its desiccating effects.
No moist-skinned, water-loving animals can exist there. Few large animals are found. The giants of the
North American desert are the deer, the coyote, and the bobcat. Since desert country is open, it holds more
swift-footed running and leaping creatures than the tangled forest. Its population is largely nocturnal, silent,
filled with reticence, and ruled by stealth. Yet they are not emaciated. Having adapted to their austere
environment, they are as healthy as animals anywhere else in the word.
The secret of their adjustment lies in the combination of behavior and physiology. None could
survive if, like mad dogs and Englishmen, they went out in the midday sun; many would die in a matter of
minutes. So most of them pass the burning hours asleep in cool, humid burrows underneath the ground,
emerging to hunt only by night. The surface of the sun-baked desert averages around 150 degrees, but 18
inches down the temperature is only 60 degrees.
Question 21: The title for this passage could be _____ . A. “Desert Plants” B. “Life Underground”
C. “Animal Life in a Desert Environment” D. “Man’s Life in a Desert Environment”
Question 22: The word “inexorable” in the passage mostly means _____ .
A. relentless B. full C. demanding D. essential
Question 23: Man can hardly understand why many animals live their whole life in the desert, as _____ .
A. sources of flowing water are rare in a desert B. water is an essential part of his existence
C. water composes the greater part of the tissues of living things D. very few large animals are
found in the desert
Question 24: The phrase “those forms” in the passage refers to all of the following EXCEPT _____.
A. water-loving animals B. the coyote and the bobcat C. moist-skinned animals D. many
large animals

Question 25: According to the passage, creatures in the desert _____.
A. are smaller and fleeter than forest animals B. live in an accommodating environment
C. are more active during the day than those in the tangled forest
D. are not as healthy as those anywhere else in the world
Question 26: The author mentions all the following as examples of the behavior of desert animals EXCEPT
A. they sleep during the day B. they dig home underground
C. they are noisy and aggressive D. they are watchful and quiet
Question 27: The word “emaciated” in the passage mostly means _____.
A. wild B. cunning C. unmanageable D. unhealthy
Question 28: : The word “Them” means_____.
A. animals B. people C. water D. minutes
Question 29: The word “burrows” in the passage mostly means _____.
A. “places where insects or other small creatures live and produce their young”
B. “holes or tunnels in the ground made by animals for them to live in”
C. “structures made of metal bars in which animals or birds are kept”
D. “places where a particular type of animal or plant is normally found”
Question 30: We can infer from the passage that _____ .
A. living things adjust to their environment B. water is the basis of desert life
C. desert life is colorful and diverse D. healthy animals live longer lives
Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the questions from number 31 to 35
Let children learn to judge their own work. A child learning to talk does not learn by being
corrected all the time: if corrected too much, he will stop talking. He notices a thousand times a day the
difference between the language he uses and the language those around him use. Bit by bit, he makes the
necessary changes to make his language like other people’s. In the same way, they learn all the other things
they learn to do without being taught – to talk, run, climb, whistle, ride a bicycle – compare their own
performances with those of more skilled people, and slowly make the needed changes. But in school we
never give a child a chance to find out his mistakes for himself, let alone correct them. We do it all for him.
We act as if we thought that he would never notice a mistake unless it was pointed out to him, or correct it
unless he was made to. Soon he becomes dependent on the teacher. Let him do it himself. Let him work out,
with the help of other children if he wants it, what this word says, what the answer is to that problem,
whether this is a good way of saying or doing this or not.
If it is a matter of right answers, as it may be in mathematics or science, give him the answer book.
Let him correct his own papers. Why should we teachers waste time on such routine work? Our job should
be to help the child when he tells us that he can’t find the way to get the right answer. Let’s end all this
VnDoc - Tải tài liệu, văn bản pháp luật, biểu mẫu miễn phí
nonsense of grades, exam, marks. Let us throw them all out, and let the children learn what all educated
persons must someday learn, how to measure their own understanding, how to know what they know or do
not know.
Let them get on with this job in the way that seems most sensible to them, with our help as school
teachers if they ask for it. The idea that there is a body of knowledge to be learnt at school and used for the
rest of one’s life is nonsense in a world as complicated and rapidly changing as ours. Anxious parents and
teachers say, “But suppose they fail to learn something essential, something they will need to get on in the
world?” Don’t worry! If it is essential, they will go out into the world and learn it.
Question 31: What does the author think is the best way for children to learn things?
A. by copying what other people do B. by making mistakes and having them corrected
C. by listening to explanations from skilled people D. by asking a great many questions
Question 32: What does the author think teachers do which they should not do?
A. They give children correct answers B. They point out children’s mistakes to them
C. They allow children to mark their own work D. They encourage children to copy from one another
Question 33: The passage suggests that learning to speak and learning to ride a bicycle are
A. not really important skills B. more important than other skills
C. basically different from learning adult skills D. basically the same as learning other skills
Question 34: Exams, grades and marks should be abolished because children’s progress should only be
estimated by___.
A. educated persons B. the children themselves C. teachers D. parents
Question 35: The author fears that children will grow up into adults who are_____.
A. too independent of others B. too critical of themselves
C. unable to think for themselves D. unable to use basic skills
Choose the word whose stress pattern is different from the others
Question 36: A. contents B. dismal C. discontent D. decent
Question 37: A. hygiene B. appointment C. remember D. neglect

Question 39: A. delicious B. theory C. attractive D. alleviate

Read the following passage and choose the right answer to each of the questions.
Are organically grown foods the best food choices? The advantages claimed for such foods over
conventionally grown and marketed food products are now being debated. Advocates of organic foods- a
term whose meaning varies greatly- frequently proclaim that such products are safer and more nutritious
than others.
The growing interest of consumers in the safety and nutritional quality of the typical North
American diet is a welcome development. However, much of this interest has been sparked by sweeping
VnDoc - Tải tài liệu, văn bản pháp luật, biểu mẫu miễn phí
claims that the foods supply is unsafe or inadequate in the meeting nutritional needs. Although most of
these claims are not supported by scientific evidence, the preponderance of written material advancing such
claims makes it difficult for the general public to separate fact from fiction. As a result, claims that eating a
diet consisting entirely of organically grown foods prevents or cures disease or provides other benefits to
health have become widely publicized and formed the basic for folklore.
Almost daily the public is besieged by claims for “no-aging” diets, new vitamins, and other wonder
foods. There are numerous unsubstantiated reports that natural vitamins are superior to synthetic ones, that
fertilized eggs are nutritionally superior to unfertilized eggs, that untreated grains are better than fumigated
grains, and the like.
One thing that most organically grown foods products seem to have in common is that they cost
more than conventionally grown foods. But in many cases consumers are misled if they believe foods. So
there is real cause for concern if consumers, particularly those with limited incomes, distrust the regular
food supply and buy expensive organic foods instead.
Question 41 The “ welcome development” mentioned in paragraph 2 is an increase in
A. interest in food safety and nutrition among North Americans.
B. the nutritional quality of the typical North American diet.
C. the amount of healthy foods grown in North America. D. the number of consumers in North
Question 42. According to the first paragraph, which of the following is true about the term “organic
A. It is accepted by most nutritionists. B. It has been used only in recent years.
C. It has no fixed meaning D. It is seldom used by consumers.
Question 43. The author implies that there is cause for concern if consumers with limited incomes buy
organic foods instead of conventionally grown foods because .
A. organic foods can be more expensive but are often no better than conventionally grown foods.
B. many organic foods are actually less nutritious than similar conventionally grown foods.
C. conventionally grown foods are more readily available than organic foods.
D. too many farmers will stop using conventional methods to grow food crops.
Question 44. According to the last paragraph, consumers who believe that organic foods are better than
conventionally grown foods are often .
A. careless B. mistaken C. thrifty D. wealthy
Question 45. What is the author’s attitude towards the claims made by advocates of health foods?
A. Very enthusiastic B. Skeptical C. Neutral D. Somewhat favorable

character traits, and (51) _____ stability. This raises the awkward question of whether job candidates

objectionable (53) _____ into their private lives.

II. Topic: Write a paragraph of about 140 words to tell about your family.
There are four people in my family: my parents, my younger sister and I. My dad is forty-nine and my
mom is four years younger. My younger sister is ten years old. My dad works for a local company and my
mom is a doctor. My younger sister is in grade 5. Both my parents work from 7:30am to 5pm everyday
except Saturday and Sunday. Sometimes they have to work at night and go away home for a few days.
Although my parents are very busy with their work, they always try to spend much time for the family. My
mother is a caring person. She always gets up early in the morning to prepare breakfast for everyone. My
dad is always happy to give a hand with the housework such as cooking meals or cleaning the floor.
Because I am in grade 12 and I will have taken the national exam by the end of June, my parents let me
have a lot of time for my study. However, I always try to help my mom and dad with the household chores.
My main responsibility is taking out the garbage, washing the dishes after meals and helping my younger
sister with her study when I have time. We are a close-knit family and we always share our feeling,
happiness, or sadness with each other. I love my family so much.

To a European, money means power, the freedom to do as he likes, which also means that, consciously
or unconsciously, he says: “I want to have as much money as possible myself and others to have as little
money as possible.”
In the United States, wealth was also acquired by stealing, but the real exploited victim was not a
human being but poor Mother Earth and her creatures who were ruthlessly plundered. It is true that the
Indians were expropriated or exterminated, but this was not, as it has always been in Europe, a matter of the
conqueror seizing the wealth of the conquered, for the Indian had never realized the potential riches of his
country. It is also true that, in the Southern states, men lived on the labor of slaves, but slave labor did not
make them fortunes; what made slavery in the South all the more inexcusable was that, in addition to being
morally wicked, it didn’t even pay off handsomely.
Thanks to the natural resources of the country, every American, until quite recently, could reasonably
look forward to making more money than his father, so that, if he made less, the fault must be his; he was
either lazy or inefficient. What an American values, therefore, is not the possession of money as such, but
his power to make it as proof of his manhood; once he has proved himself by making it, it has served its
function and can be lost or given away. In no society in history have rich men given away so large a part of
their fortunes. A poor American feels guilty at being poor, but less guilty than an American renter who had
inherited wealth but is doing nothing to increase it; what can the latter do but take to drink and
Question 26: Which of the following can be concluded from the first paragraph?
A. Money is made either consciously or unconsciously. B. Those who have a lot of money enjoy
real freedom.
C. Some European acquire money and power without even being conscious of it.
D. Some people not only want to get rich but wish others to be poor.
Question 27: To an American, money means ___________.
A. proof of ability and manhood B. "proof of ability and manhood" and "diligence and

Question 28: The author seems to believe that the natural resources in the U.S. are _________.
A. rich B. on the increase C. poor D. limited
Question 29: In the passage, the word “fortunes” (Paragraphs 2 and 3) is used twice. What does it mean?
A. good opportunities B. power C. wealth D. luck
Question 30: In the author’s opinion, an American renter __________.
A. will take to drink if he does nothing to increase his wealth B. should feel more guilty than a poor
C. should feel content with this inherited wealth D. is even lazier and more inefficient than a poor

Read the passage and then choose the best answer for each following question.
Psychologists are interested in the reasons why some people like taking part in risky sports. When
they studied people who were learning to jump from a plane with a parachute, they found that parachutists’
bodies produced large amounts of two hormones, adrenaline and nor adrenaline, just before they made their
These hormones help to prepare us for any sudden activity. Adrenaline increases the heart rate and
provides more sugar for the muscles, while nor does adrenaline make us react more quickly. However, nor
adrenaline also stimulates apart of the brain which controls feelings of pleasure. Some psychologists have
concluded that it is a feeling of pleasure caused by this hormone which makes certain people want to
participate in dangerous sports.
Another possible reason is the level of arousal in part of the brain. According to some psychologists,
the brain tries to maintain a certain level of arousal. They believe that people who normally have a low
level of arousal look for excitement and new experiences in order to stimulate themselves, whereas people
who usually have a high level of arousal try to avoid risks and unfamiliar situations in order not to become
overexcited. If the psychologists are right, people with a low arousal are the ones who enjoy participating in
dangerous sports and activities.
