2012 English form 3 exam paper 1WITH answer scheme ! Yeah !

[ 10 marks ]
Read the passage and complete the following task.
It is a good practice to save money during school recess time. Here are some tips.
First, bring home-made food to school. During recess, instead of buying, eat the food you have brought. The money you have saved can be put for better use.
Bottle your own water. Drinking water is good for your health. Bottled water is the most convenient since it can provide protection against accidental spills. That said, buy bottled water only once in a while, and then reuse that bottle to fill your own water.
Avoid the vending machines. Almost everything that is dispensed via vending machines has a huge mark-up. However, if you always feel hungry at school, bring small packets of biscuits.
If you are going to buy food anyway, write down the food and the price you are paying for. This makes you to keep track of the food price and any price change
.  You will not be able to see the balance unless you know how much pocket money you receive your parents give you, and how much money you have spent. So, keep a book of money-in money-out.

Your summary must:
  • not be more than 60 words, including the 10 words given below
  • be in continuous writing ( not note form )
  • be written in one paragraph

Use your own words as far as possible without changing its original meaning.
Begin your summary as follows:

Enrich that smile her eyes began.
