Follow the following tips to reduce your stress to manageable levels! Avoid “
Must” think. Let go of the notion that you must do something in a certain way—for example, “I must get a great score on a test, or else.” This thought pattern only adds to the stress you’ll feel. Evaluate your situation coldly and analytically, and not as a “lifeordeath” situation. Watch the Mess. Don’t study in a messy or cramped area. Clear yourself a nice, open space that’s free of distractions. Set Manageable Goals. Break large projects into smallerand doable parts and you’ll feel a positive sense of accomplishment as you finish each part.
Ocean Dumping. Visualize yourself walking on a beautiful beach, carrying a sand
pail. Stop at a good spot and put your worries into the pail. Drop the pail and
watch as it drifts away into the ocean. Think Good Thoughts. Create a set of positive but brief affirmations and mentally repeat them to yourself just before you fall asleep at night, and you will feel a lot more positive in the morning. Imagine
Yourself Succeeding. Close your eyes and remember a reallife situation in which you did well. Imagine facing your stressful situation with the same feelings
of confidence. Use Your Bed for Sleeping, not Studying. Your mind may start to
associate your bed with work, which will make it harder for you to fall asleep.
Soothing Sounds. If you want to play music, keep it low in the background. Classical music especially can aid the learning process. Take a Hike, Pal. Need a study break? Take a short, brisk walk. Clear your mind.

Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage:
It isn’t often that an entire industry is symbolized in the figure of a single
human being, and such is the case with Canadian aviation and the aircraft industry. The man is the Hon. John A.D.McCurdy, and the life story of this still vigorous, distinguished Canadian is at once and at the same time the thrilling history
of aviation’s progress in Canada.
It all began one cold February day in 1909 at Baddeck, Nova Scotia, when John
McCurdy confounded the critics by flying the Silver Dart, an aircraft designed by
himself, for half a mile over the ice of Bras deor Lakes. This was the first po
wered flight in Canada and the first by a British subject in the Commonwealth.
McCurdy gave proof of his flying ability—and of the development and the use of the aileronby being the first man in the world to execute a figure eight in
the air. He became the first to pilot a flying boat, taking off from Long Island Sound. He flew the first airplane to Mexico. In 1911 he had made the longest flight
to date, and that over open sea 90 miles from Key West to Havana. He won the first crosscountry race in Canada40 miles from Hamilton to Toronto—and he transmitted the first radio message from aircraft.
When World War Ⅱ came, McCurdy took on board supervisory authority for Canadian aircraft production by serving with the government in various senior positions.
Following World War Ⅱ, McCurdy was honored by being made lieutenant governor
of Nova Scotia where he made Canada’s first historic flight. He now lives in Montreal with a summer home in Baddeck, site of his first flight.

Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage:
The oldest and simplest method, then of describing differences in personality
was to classify people according to types, and such a system is called a Typology.
A famous example of this method was set forth in Greece about the year 400 BC.
A physician named Hippocrates theorized that there were four fluids, or humors, in the body. Corresponding to each humor, he believed, there existed a definite type of personality.
The four humors were blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm. A person in whom all four humors were in perfect balance had a harmonious personality. If a person had too much blood, he was called sanguine(血红色), or cheerful and optimistic. Someone with too much yellow bile was choleric, or irritable and easily angered. Too much black bile made a person melancholy, or depressed and pessimistic. An oversupply of phlegm caused a human being to be phlegmatic, or slow and unfeeling. Scientists have long since discarded Hippocrates’ fluid theory. But the names of the humors, corresponding to these temperaments, have survived and are still useful, to some extent, in describing personality.
Other features of people, such as their faces and physics, have also been used
to classify personality. Today, however, personality theories and classifications
may also include factors such as heredity(遗传特征), the environment, intelligence
, and emotional needs. Psychology, biology, and sociology are involved in these
theories. Because of the complexity of human personality, presentday theories are often very different from one another. Psychologists vary in their ideas about what is most important in determining personality.

Directions:For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a composition on the topic “Migrant Workers”. You should write no less than 100 words and you should base your composition on the outline (given in Chinese) below.
Each year, attracted by job opportunities, thousands of migrant workers rush i
nto cities to better their life. While fulfilling their personal desires, these
migrant workers also provide urban residents with more conveniences by working i
n all walks of life. Besides, they meet the emergent needs of work force in som
e industries such as construction and help to quicken the steps of city construc
tion through their hard work, therefore contributing a lot to the city’s social
and economic development.
However, cities are, at the same time, confronted with many problems created b
y migrant workers. For example, too many migrant workers result in overcrowded
space and thus cause housing problem; secondly, they make a mess of city’s envi
ronment by littering casually; and thirdly, migrant population may create diffic
ulties in carrying familyplanning policy, etc.
But we can’t expel migrant workers from cities just because of the above prob
We should adopt correct attitudes towards them and take effective measures to so
lve them. We firmly believe that migrant workers will be of greater help to city
life in future.
