(D) Answer the questions(根据短文内容回答下列问题): (6%)

It’s every teenager’s nightmare (恶魔): exam time. During the last three days of the term, we have six exams. My easiest exam was maths. All of its questions were from earlier exams.

The biology exam was hard. At first, I thought I had failed it. It asked lots of things we never studied in class, so we could use our textbooks. But there wasn’t enough time to check every question. I guessed on many of them. But my teacher said I did well.

On the career planning and computer applications (申请) exam, we had a lot to do: a PowerPoint presentation (显示), a book report and a class evaluation. I felt like I needed more time, but some of my classmates didn’t think so much. They just quickly wrote down some answers and then played games.

I don’t think I did very well in the English exam. We had to write an essay (读后感) about books we’ve read in class. But I didn’t study enough.

At our school, we can “Test out” of some classes. That means students can study by themselves and then take a class exam. If they pass, they don’t have to take the class, I tested out of both computer and health classes.

Studying for those exams was terrible. Those classes go for six months, but I had to teach myself everything in three weeks. Also, I had to do three big projects at the same time. I watched no TV for almost three weeks! I am so glad it’s all over, and now it’s the summer holiday.

For my classmates, it will be two and a half months of fun without school or homework. But I’m a Chinese, and you know what Chinese parents do with their kids’ free time: still more homework.

5 / 7 A. interesting B. popular A. once B. however C. relaxing C. again D. frightening D. ever

81. Can students in the writer’s school test out of some classes?

82. How many big projects did the writer have to do at the same time?

83. For the writer’s classmates, how long will it be of fun without school or homework?
