Product Description
This is an advanced English as a second or foreign language (ESL / EFL) examination.

No need to struggle with formatting or figuring out the answers in advanced level English - It’s ready to print and comes with an answer key.

The exam starts with a reading passage - a biography of Steve Jobs including his biological and adoptive parents and his life growing up. There are five true or false comprehension questions plus another five vocabulary word comprehension questions from key words underlined in the passage.

The next two sections are regarding phrases related to making decisions. Firstly, there is a cloze passage with five fill in the blanks including phrases such as “in two minds”. After that is a matching exercise with 10 items linking the phrase to its meaning (includes phrases such as “a snap decision” and “mull over”).

Next is a section dedicated to error detection. It’s a short passage about a man and wife arguing where each line is either correct or contains an extra unnecessary word (10 items).

Success or failure phrases is the theme of the next section. Students identify whether the sentence relates to a success or a failure. Phrases include “pulled it off” and “blew it” (5 items).

On next to word formation and parts of speech. Students must complete a table converting verbs into adjectives and adverbs and then from that table they must use the correct form of the words in gap fill sentences (10 items).

The next five items test understanding both sentence structure and phrases about decisions as it is unscrambling the words to make a short sentence that contains decision related expressions (such as "you can't pick and choose").

The final section is a writing section where the students are prompted to write about how they interpret a quote from Steve Jobs, justifying what they think.

The test is 90 minutes in duration and there are a total possible 60 marks.

Students answer on a one-page answer sheet; a teacher answer key accompanies this. There is also a marked-up version of the exam.

The exam file is provided in three formats: Word, PDF and XPS Document. The answer sheet and answer key are both in PDF and XPS Document format. The marked-up exam is in PDF format.

I hope it's useful to you.
