When we feel anxious, we often give ourselves messages like: "I can’t do this", "I’m useless" and "I’m going to fail". It can be difficult but to replace these with positive thoughts such as: "this is just anxiety, it can’t harm me" and, "relax, concentrate - it’s going to be okay".

Picturing how you’d like things to go can help you feel more positive. Try to imagine yourself up to an exam feeling confident and relaxed. You turn over your paper, write down what you do know and come away knowing you tried your best on the day.

It can sometimes feel like your whole future on what grades you get. There can be a lot of for young people to do well in exams which can cause a lot of stress and anxiety. You might have been predicted certain grades or put into a higher set, and feel if you don’t get the grade you’ll let your teachers or parents .

Remember, exams are important – but they’re not the only way to a successful future. Lots of people achieve success in life without doing well in school exams.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Although speech is the most advanced form of communication, there are many ways of communicating without using speech. Signals, signs, symbols, and gestures may be found in every known culture. The basic function of a signal is to impinge upon the environment in such a way that it attracts attention, as, for example, the dots and dashes of a telegraph circuit. Coded to refer to speech, the potential for communication is very great. Less adaptable to the codification of words, signs also contain meanings in and of themselves. A stop sign or a barber pole conveys meaning quickly and conveniently.

Symbols are more difficult to describe than either signals or signs because of their intricate relationship with the receiver's cultural perceptions. In some cultures, applauding in a theater provides performers with an auditory symbol of approval. Gestures such as waving and handshaking also communicate certain cultural messages.

Although signals, signs, symbols, and gestures are very useful, they do have a major disadvantage in communication. They usually do not allow ideas to be shared without the sender being directly adjacent to the receiver. Without an exchange of ideas, interaction comes to a halt. As a result, means of communication intended to be used for long distances and extended periods must be based upon speech. Radio, television, and the telephone are only a few.

What does the author say about speech?

  • It is dependent upon the advances made by inventors.
  • It is the most advanced form of communication.
  • It is necessary for communication to occur.
  • It is the only true form of commnication.

The word "it" in paragraph 1 refers to _____.

  • way
  • environment
  • function
  • signal

Applauding was cited as an example of _____.

  • a signal
  • a sign
  • a gesture
  • a symbol

Why were the telephone, radio, and television invented?

  • Because people were unable to understand signs, signals, and symbols.
  • Because people wanted to communicate across long distances.
  • Because people believed that signs, signals, and symbols were obsolete.
  • Because people wanted new forms of communication.

Which would be the best title for the passage?

  • Gestures
  • Signs and signals
  • Speech
  • Communication

Read the passage and decide whether the statements below are true or false. 

The Digital Divide

A recent survey has shown that the number of people in the United Kingdom who do not intend to get internet access has risen. These people, who are know as 'net refuseniks', make up 44% of UK households, or 11.2 million people in total.

The research also showed that more than 70 percent of these people said that they were not interested in getting connected to the internet. This number has risen from just over 50% in 2005, with most giving lack of computer skills as a reason for not getting internet access, though some also said it was because of the cost.

More and more people are getting broadband and high-speed net is available almost everywhere in the UK, but there are still a significant number of people who refuse to take the first step.

The cost of getting online is going down and internet speeds are increasing, so the main challenge is to explain the relevance of the internet to this group. This would encourage them to get connected before they are left too far behind. The gap between those who have access to the internet and who do not is the digital divide, and if the gap continues to widen, those without access will get left behind and miss out on many opportunities, especially in their careers.

The majority of people in the UK do not intend to get internet access.

The main reason for not getting internet access is the cost.

High-speed internet is not available everywhere in the UK.

Many people think that getting the costs down is the key to this problem.

The digital divide is widening in the UK.
