How to Bridge the Digital Gap for the Elderly
In recent years, the increasing developmentpf technologies facilitates human life. The digital gap for the elderly has aroused a heated discussion. But I do not think the elders should be neglected in using new technologies.
Multiple measures should be carried out to help bridge the digital gap for older people in the city to make sure they share in the benefits of a smart society. First, online medical services should be simplified and voice-led guidance should be guided. Second, payment systems for retail, catering, shopping malls, parks and other basic public services such as water and electricity must not decline to accept cash payments. Last but not least, as young people, we should help to teach seniors to use smartphones and become more familiar with the internet and related services.
Only by the above-mentioned measures, can we effectively bridge the digital gap for old people and help them learn more from technologies.

For this part, you are required to write a composition on the topic: Part-time Jobs. You should write at least 120-word and base yours composition on the outline given in Chinese below.
On College Students’ Taking Part-time Jobs
In contemporary society, college students’ taking part-time jobs has become a hot topic. It has a great influence on college students’ life. I believe there are both benefits and drawbacks for this issue.
Clearly, in addition to getting an income, college students taking part-time jobs may enjoy a more exciting lifestyle as they can meet people from all walks of life and develop a sense of responsibility which can’t be learned in the classroom.
On the other hand, the negative effects of part-time job are also obvious. Students who take part-time jobs may have less time focusing on study, and if they seek to excel in both the part-time job and study, the busy life they lead may put their health at risk. Besides, the society is much more complicated than they expected, they may be exposed to danger sometimes.
In my opinion, college students ought to strike a balance between academic study and part-time jobs. And always bear in mind that a student’s priority is to acquire knowledge at school.

For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitledWhat Should Determine a Student’s Grade?
You should write at least 120 words following the outline given below:
What should determine a students grade?
When it comes to a students grade, people can never agree with each other.
Some argue that students’ grade should be determined by their test results, for such a yardstick is more objective. In this way, the focus of teaching is oriented to the preparation for tests. And thus, every point counts.
On the other hand, others hold the opinion that it is students’ attitudes towards study and their performance in class that play a significant role in students?
As far as I am concerned, I support the latter opinion. The goal of teaching is to cultivate students, study habit and develop their interest in learning more than preparing fort tests. Test is just a measure of checking students’ study. Only when a student has proper attitudes and active class involvement can we say that he has understood what study really means.
In conclusion, as learning is more a process than a result, students’ grade should be determined by their daily performance.

For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitledHow to Solve the Energy Problem? You should write at least 120 words following the outline given below:
When asked about one of the biggest problems today, many people say that an energy crisis is approaching and is threatening mankind’s survival. They are afraid that the world is likely to run out of oil and metals and even to run short of food.
To this problem, most countries respond with the demand for more rigid conservation of our natural resources. Indeed, this is urgently needed, since the present waste of energy is so serious. If the natural resources are used economically, we can certainly slow down the present drain on the limited energy supply. However, the problem cannot be solved by conservation only. I think another way is to develop new energy resources. Obviously, no matter how hard we try to save energy resources and how abundant they are，we will use them up sooner or later. I think we don’t have to depend only on the current energy resources. There are many other energy resources that we develop such as nuclear power, water power and solar power. If so, these resources can completely replace the conventional energy and thus solve the problem of energy crisis.
In conclusion, we should each do our little part to save the limited energy resources. Let’s work together.

You should write at least 120 words and base your composition on the outline (given in Chinese) below.
With the internet developing, online games have become very popular among college students, which has caused a wide concern.
In terms of the phenomenon, opinions vary from person to person. On the one hand, many parents and schools are worried about online games, saying that the young who are addicted to them will suffer a lot in their academic performance.It is true that quite a few students have spent too much time and energy playing online games, which has had a negative effect on their studying. On the other hand, there is another voice for online games, arguing that many students have enjoyed great pleasure and satisfaction from these games. To be honest, there are some advantages in online games.
Firstly, it is because of playing online games that the young can be trained to respond thins quickly. Secondly, it can bring much pleasure to the young, getting them relaxed and the pressure released.
From my point of view, what matters most is to play them in a clever way. Not only should you take advantage of it, but also avoid getting addicted to playing them.

How to Cope with Pressure
At a fast-speed society, every one of us is exposed to great pressure in both life and work. Therefore it is increasingly important for us to learn how to cope with pressure. In my opinion, the best way to cope with pressure is keeping a good mood.
Keeping a good mood is important because it can help us solve various problems in life. The following two situations can enable us to clearly see how a positive attitude helps us cope with unpleasant things. Take English learning for example. In our effort to grasp English, mistakes are inevitable. From one perspectives mistakes are annoying, but a positive attitude can make us realize that only through making mistakes can we make progress. Sometimes one may come down with a serious cold, feeling depressed. But a change in attitude will enable us to look at the thing from a positive perspective. The illness will teach us the importance of health.
As we can see, a positive and happy attitude can help us deal with mistakes in the right way and find comfort in time of sorrow. Its importance must be paid more attention.

For this part, you are required to write a comprehension of 120 to 180 words. Your writing should be based on the title and outline given below.
Finding a Job or Pursuing Further Studies
Career or Degree? Every Graduate’s Decision
After staying on campus for many years, some students become bored and can’t wait to get a job. They are eager to lead a life that is less stressful intellectually and less pressing economically. In their eyes, a job can provide them with opportunities to solve problems that will demand a combination of both academic and practical knowledge.
However, some students plan to continue their education in pursuing has her degree. As Far as academic preparation is concerned, the knowledge and skills acquired at an undergraduate level are far from adequate in the job market. It is a fact that an ever-increasing number of graduates are returning to school, motivated by the need to update their knowledge and enhance their skills. The news that graduates with higher degrees are better off is a direct result of the shrinking job market.
All this indicates that a bachelor’s degree can hardly qualify students for a competitive position. If I were able to choose for myself, I would prefer to stay and pursue an M.A.degree. I know my choice would mean a commitment of time and money. Opportunities, however, always take the form of hardships and risks. The days might be rigorous and painstaking, but they would certainly be fulfilling and rewarding, and would surely lead to a prosperous future.
