Mostly online, and also one day a week in college. It’s really hard work. W: No. I didn’t know. What is it? M: It’s a long story, but what I’m doing is trying to get a basic qualification in Maths… W: Maths? But I thought you hated Maths! M: Well, yes. It was definitely my worst subject at school. I really hated it then, I had an awful teacher and I Didn’t understand a thing! W: So why do you want to do it now? M: I don’t want to, but I need to. Looking back, I wish I’d studied harder at school and just done it, because I really need it now. I want to train to be a teacher. W: A Maths teacher?! M: No! I want to be a history teacher, but in the UK, you have to have a basic Maths qualification to train to be any kind of teacher. W: Really? That doesn’t seem fair. M: Well, that’s the rules! Now I’m older and wiser! I realise that studying hard and passing exams gives you more choices in life. That’s one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned. W: I suppose you’re right. But it’ s only with the benefit of what you have experienced that you realise these things. When you’re young, you often can’t see the point of it really. How were you to know that doing well in Maths then, would help you become a history teacher now! M: Well, those are the rules.

M: So, how far back do you know? W: Well, I’m pretty confident about as far back as my great-grandparents, Cicely and John. M: You didn’t actually know them, did you? W: No, unfortunately, they died in the 1970s. By all accounts they were an amazing couple, devoted to each other. M: Hmm, and how many children did they have. W: They had Laura and Ben, both around 1930 I think. M: So, Laura’s your grandmother, isn’t she? I’ ve heard you talk about her, haven’t I? W: Yes, that’s right. I go and visit her about once a month ... up in Leeds. M: Is her husband still alive? W: Julian? No, he died a couple of years ago. So, she ’s on her own now. M: So, obviously Laura is your ... W: My mum’s mother. Laura and Julian had 3 kids: my mum Alison and my aunts Sue and Deborah. Then my mum and dad, David, had just me ... M: Great being an only child, isn’ t it? W: Sometimes. M: And you’ve some cousins, haven’t you? - 11 W: Yes, my aunt Deborah had a son and a daughter, Leon and Esther. We all got on really well.

W: Well, Esther met a doctor in New Zealand while she was travelling around and Leon divides his time between being a diving instructor in the summers mainly around Egypt and Turkey and a skiing instructor in the winters. M: Hard life! W: Yeah, I know.
III. Passages A) Listen to the following material and choose the best answer to each question. The material will be read twice. Hello, everybody! I am John, the school advisor. Today, I’m going to talk about subjects to study over Years 10 and 11. Your subject choices are very important, because they’ll influence your next two years at school and also university choices and future career. But don’t panic! Your subject teachers, career coordinators and family will help you to decide. You know that some GCSE subjects are compulsory, like Maths, English and Science because they’re part of the National Curriculum. But don’t worry. You have lots of optional subjects too. Before you decide which options to take, it’s a good idea to think about what you like doing, what you’re good at and what skills you have developed outside school. Then, you should decide what type of person you are. Remember, choose what you think will work for you and not what your friends are going to do. Finally, if you’ve got a particular career in mind, it’s very important to find out the specific subjects you need to take. For example, would you like to become a fashion designer or a jeweller? Then you should take Art and Design. Would you like to work for an international bank? You’ ll need to study Business and Finance and so forth. But, remember, if you want to succeed in anything, you’ll need a lot of passion and determination! B) Listen to the following material and fill in the missing information in each numbered space, using no more than three words or numbers. The material will be read twice. What do I think about education in Britain today? Well, as in all things, there’s a good side and a bad side. On the good side, I think more young
people are staying at school and then going on to university than ever before. And exam results have also got better. Some people say that this is because exams have got easier, but I don ’t agree. On the bad side, well, there are still a lot of young people who leave school without any qualifications at all, and that’s terrible. Also I think there are more discipline problems than there used to be, especially with boys. But the main problem is that there aren’t enough teachers, especially in some subjects like Maths and Science. This is partly because very few boys want to become teachers. Most teachers today are women. But it’s also because teachers aren’t paid enough. I think the government will need to put up teachers’ salaries very soon, or things will only get worse. This is the end of the listening section
