Вступительный тест в МГЛ гимназию-колледж №24 (2004)

В 2004 г., окончив 9 классов Столбцовской школы №2, я поступал в Минскую государственную лингвистическую гимназию-колледж №24. Конкурс на переводческое отделение составил 7 человек на место (112 ребят претендовали на 16 бюджетных мест). Я сдал русский язык на 9 баллов (диктант) и английский — на 9 баллов (эта оценка усреднялась из трёх частей экзамена — грамматики, чтения и говорения). Однако на бюджет поступить не посчастливилось: проходной балл был 19 из 20 (а идти на платное для меня — это то же, что не поступить совсем). Помню, как полчаса потом дома рыдал, когда, позвонив в приёмную комиссию, узнал, что не прошёл (рыдал, потому что в школу не хотел возвращаться). Зато на следующий год они поместили образец вступительного теста по грамматике и чтению на своём стенде, которые как раз я и писал год назад. Я приехал в гимназию-колледж и аккуратно переписал его с целью самообразования. Ниже — собственно тест. Сама 24-я гимназия его не опубликовала нигде на своём сайте, но это может служить хорошим ориентиром для людей, поступающих после 9 класса.

Reading Text

My room is on the top of a four-storey building. The building isn’t particularly beautiful, nor is the room, but it has a very beautiful view. It’s on the top, and because it’s quite high up I can see almost all of the Athens.

Immediately opposite the room I can see a church, which is very nice – which can also be very annoying, because every Sunday morning they put loudspeakers in the yard of the church and you can hear the whole service whether you want to or not.

Beyond the church I can see the sea and the harbour. On the other side I can see the Acropolis and Lekavitos, which is a mountain in Athens with a church on the top as well.

It’s very nice at night, because the whole city’s lit up, and it looks beautiful. You can see the different colours of the lights and you can see the cars forming colours in the streets as they drive by, forming colours with their lights I mean.

Sometimes it’s not so nice, though, especially early in the morning when there’s a lot of smog over the city, and you wake up to a smog cloud that covers everything. The change is awful, because on a clear day the view is so marvellous and so beautiful, and the colours are so bright. But on a day that’s polluted with the smog you can’t even breathe.
