6 Reading Part 3 Questions Look at the sentences below about a comedy club for young people, called omedy Kids. Read the text on the opposite page to decide if each sentence is correct or incorrect. If it is correct, mark A on your answer sheet. If it is not correct, mark on your answer sheet. 11 omedy Kids operates a number of internationally-based clubs for young people. 12 omedy Kids comedians have had as much experience working with children as with adults. 13 According to John Winterton, he is the first ever young people s stand-up comedian. 14 John looks like most people s idea of a typical entertainer for young people. 15 omedy Kids will hold special parties at their clubs for young people if requested. 16 A lot of omedy Kids comedians have the right qualities for performing at young people s parties. 17 Guests at omedy Kids parties are invited to perform if they wish. 18 omedy Kids have discovered lots of good young comedians who have not been trained. 19 In a year s time there ll be more classes available for young people wanting to be comedians. 20 omedy Kids prefer it if the young people who join them are already quite confident. 6
7 omedy Kids Do you enjoy watching comedy? Do all your friends at school think you tell great jokes? Then why not come and see what s happening at omedy Kids? omedy Kids own comedy clubs in several countries that are run just for young people aged They re real clubs with real comedians, who are just as familiar with working in adult comedy clubs as they are working with children. ut don t take our word for it come and see for yourself! The omedy Kids company was set up by John Winterton, who says that no-one had thought of being a stand-up comedian for young people until he came along. In fact, his act quickly became so popular that he soon found lots of other comedians who wanted to join his company and perform for families and young people. And if you think, as many others do, that a young people s comedian leaps on stage in a brightly-coloured costume and big red nose think again. John usually appears dressed in a cool black jacket and trousers more like a Hollywood movie star than a circus clown! If you re having a party at home omedy Kids can come and perform for you there at your party just ask! Of course, it s not the same as performing on stage, so we re always looking for comedians in the clubs who are good at working with small numbers of young people and we ve discovered there aren t many of them about! ut the ones we have found are brilliant. Your very own comedian will also help you to tell your guests some jokes and silly stories and they can join in too, if they want! It ll be fun and very different from any party you ve ever had before! Here at omedy Kids, it s not just about the adults telling the jokes. We also have very short open spots where young people get the chance to perform. ut we ve yet to find someone who can do that without preparation, so we ve set up the world s first omedy lasses to teach young people how to tell jokes on stage. At the moment our classes are only monthly, but we re planning to start a number of others over the coming year. So if you want to be a comedian but don t want to wait until you grow up, this is where you can do it. And if you re creative but feel you re lacking in the confidence to speak up, we can certainly help. We ll listen to what you want to do, and try to make it happen. So what are you waiting for? ome and join omedy Kids! 7 Turn Over
8 Reading Part 4 Questions Read the text and questions below. For each question, mark the correct letter A,, or D on your answer sheet. Underwater research Fourteen-year-old Miguel Diaz talks about an exciting science project Last month I got the chance to take part in an underwater research project in an area of the Gulf of Mexico called the Flower Gardens. A team of professional researchers, led by the scientist Dr. Matt Phillips, was trying to learn more about the fish and various creatures that live in this part of the sea. The Flower Gardens are a long way from the shore and we spent three days on a boat. The team used a piece of underwater equipment called a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to collect information. The ROV could measure water depth and temperature and it also had a camera that sent live film back to the boat. The ROV was great fun. It was controlled by a computer on the boat, and I was allowed to operate it a few times. However, the thing I enjoyed most was diving into the water. At first, I was quite frightened mainly because I couldn t see land in any direction. ut as soon as I jumped into the water, I wasn t afraid anymore. It was amazing to see the colourful fish swimming around and I could see all the way to the Flower Gardens, which are almost 30 metres down. I will never forget the Flower Gardens. The trip was like a holiday but I also learnt new things about science and research projects. The team was very friendly and everyone was happy to explain what they knew about the sea. It was a great opportunity and it has made me think about my goals in life. The experience will definitely help me work harder to become a scientist. 8
9 21 What is Miguel Diaz doing in the text? A D describing the part he played in a science project explaining how to apply for a place on a science trip giving advice on understanding difficult areas of science persuading others to organise their own science projects 22 What does Miguel say about the ROV? A D It was difficult to operate. It could only go so far under water. It was an expensive piece of equipment. It recorded what was happening under water. 23 What was Miguel s attitude towards diving? A D His main worry was losing sight of the boat. He enjoyed it less than other parts of the trip. His feelings changed once he was in the water. He was quite disappointed by the variety of fish. 24 What effect has the trip had on Miguel? A D It has changed his opinion of science. It has improved the way he works in a team. It has made him a lot more interested in the sea. It has encouraged him to work towards his goals. 25 What might Miguel write in his diary about the trip? A It was very interesting working with Dr Phillips and his team but I wish someone else my age had been on the trip. Going to the Flower Gardens was great fun. I now know much more about science but I realise there s still a lot more to learn. The trip was like a holiday and I saw some amazing fish. The only thing I disliked was collecting information about the sea. D The Flower Gardens is a beautiful place but scientists are worried that pollution levels there will increase. 9 Turn Over

Well organised narrative with chronological linking, for example Suddenly and after two minutes. Errors are minor and non-impeding: poisonus and which shouted.
17 andidate Jo looked at the map and decided to go left. She wasn t sure about her decision. As she was walking across the street, she saw a tiny light on front of her face. She followed it.

She felt secure. Now, she knew that there were few steps to arrived to the place she was looking for, but immideatly realised that she was at the same point when she saw for the first time the map. and 4 This is a good attempt, with fairly ambitious use of language. The range of vocabulary and structures used is more than adequate for the task set, for example She wasn t sure about her decision and thinking how stupid she felt. The narrative is organised chronologically, with As then Suddenly Now Now immideatly. There are some errors which generally do not impede, for example laugh of herself and few steps to arrived to the place. andidate Jo looked at the map and decided to go left.

Once they not find a ground to the city. Part 3 Letter andidate A Joe, In my country, there are many holidays thoughout the year, but the traditional holiday is Tet holiday.
