(1 point) The machine that is celebrity culture has given us the meteoric rise and fall of the child actor, with plenty of cautionary tales to point to and ask if something should have been done to prevent them. Recently, the Chinese government took the extreme and unprecedented measure of banning the children of celebrities from appearing in any type of reality TV programming, in an effort to prevent the manufacturing of child stars. It would appear that perhaps limiting the exposure a child has to fame serves to protect and ensure a solid, stable upbringing. The pressure of fame is undoubtedly onerous, even for adults, who, despite growing up out of the spotlight, sometimes buckle under the stress of stardom they achieved later in life and exhibit all manner of behavioral disorders after their stardom has waned. The same can be said of child actors, but the effect is seemingly multiplied by the fact that, if achieving stardom as children, their view of reality is possibly warped and they may never even have the chance to acquire the necessary coping skills. But given that some child actors - in fact, most - can make a go of their careers into adulthood, are children really so incapable of handling such pressure or is there actually no problem at all? ■ A) Banning children from acting has an element of common sense to it, but imagine, if you will, television programmes, films and so forth absent of children.■ B) While the Chinese government's move to limit the exposure of children may seem well intentioned, at least on the surface, it is not entirely realistic to say that children are not allowed to appear on the small or big screen.

C) Of course, they are applying it to one particular media - that of reality TV; nonetheless, is such a ban sensible for any type of media? D) Upon closer examination of the phenomenon of the child star, we see examples both of success and failure. How many of each do we have? Is there a disproportionately high amount of failure in the lives of child actors if we look at the statistics and compare their problems with those of ordinary people? We see a child star fail and we immediately blame fame, but what about the success stories of other child Trang 4 / 14 actors such as Jodie Foster, Daniel Radcliffe and Leonardo Dicaprio, all of whom got their start as very young children? Are we to credit fame for their success in the same way we blame it for others' failures? In the case of the latter, there are the stars we know about, as they went on to achieve long-lasting fame, even top acting awards. Child stars are not always destined to eternally seek the limelight, however, so there are many cases of success stories that people often don't know about. Peter Ostum, who played Charlie Bucket in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, went on to pursue a doctorate in veterinary medicine. Shirley Temple, leading box-office star in the 1930s from the age of seven, became a politician and the first female US ambassador. Polish child stars and identical twin brothers Lech and Jaroslaw Kaczynski gave up acting and were respectively elected as president and prime minister of Poland, positions they held at the same time. Invariably, though, it's the catastrophic demise that we hear about, not just of child actors, of course, but when it does happen to them, we feel a mixture of sorrow and disbelief. To data, there is little statistical evidence to support the claim that fame and celebrity culture ruin the lives of child actors; the only proof we have is what we perceive to be true. Protections are in place, to an extent, to help ensure that children have as normal an upbringing as possible. California, for example, has enacted laws which mandate that children must continue with their educational studies exactly as they would if they weren't in films, even going so far as to require teachers on set if need be. In this vein, ensuring support for child actors may need to go further than the broad restrictions exercised by China. 56. Which best serves as the title for the passage? A. Too young to be famous B.

C. our conception of fame is greater than the reality. D. children should receive insightful education about how to deal with fame. 64. Look at the four squares [] that indicate where the following sentence could be added to the passage.

A. First square B. Second square C. Third square D. Fourth square 65. The word "mandate" in the final paragraph mostly means A. giving official permission for something to happen B. ordering something to happen C. putting something into action D. allowing for the existence of something Part 3: For questions 66-78, read the text below and do the task that follow. (1.3 points) A. Attitudes towards Artificial Intelligence Artificial intelligence (AI) can already predict the future. Police forces are using it to map. when and where crime is likely to occur. Doctors can use it to predict when a patient is most likely to have a heart attack or stroke. Researchers are even trying to give AI imagination so it can plan for unexpected consequences. Many decisions in our lives require a good forecast, and AI is almost always better at forecasting than we are. Yet for all these technological advances, we still seem to deeply lack confidence in AI predictions. Recent cases show that people don't like relying on AI and prefer to trust human experts, even if these experts are wrong. If we want Al to really benefit people, we need to find a way to get people to trust it. To do that, we need to understand why people are so reluctant to trust AI in the first place. B. Take the case of Watson for Oncology, one of technology giant IBM's supercomputer programs. Their attempt to promote this program to cancer doctors was a PR disaster. The AI promised to deliver top-quality recommendations on the treatment of 12 cancers that accounted for 80% of the world's cases. But when doctors first interacted with Watson, they found themselves in a rather difficult situation.

On the one hand, if Watson provided guidance about a treatment that coincided with their own opinions, physicians did not see much point in Watson's recommendations. The supercomputer was simply telling them what they already knew, and these recommendations did not change the actual treatment. On the other hand, if Watson generated a recommendation that contradicted the experts' opinion, doctors would typically conclude that Watson wasn't competent. And the machine wouldn't be able to explain why its treatment was plausible because its machine-learning algorithms were simply too complex to be fully understood by humans. Consequently, this has caused even more suspicion and disbelief, leading many doctors to ignore the seemingly outlandish AI recommendations and stick to their own expertise. C. This is just one example of people's lack of confidence in AI and their reluctance to accept what AI has to offer. Trust in other people is often based on our understanding of how others think and having experience of their reliability. This helps create a psychological feeling of safety. AI, on the other hand, is still fairly new and unfamiliar to most people. Even if it can be technically explained (and that's not always the case), Al's decision-making process is usually too difficult for most people to comprehend. And interacting with something we don't understand can cause anxiety and give us a sense that we're losing control. Many people are also simply not familiar with many instances of AI actually working, because it often happens in the background. Instead, they are acutely aware of instances where AI goes wrong. Embarrassing AI failures receive a disproportionate amount of media attention, emphasising the message that we cannot rely on technology. Machine learning is not foolproof, in part because the Trang 6 / 14 humans who design it aren't. D. Feelings about AI run deep. In a recent experiment, people from a range of backgrounds were given various sci-fi films about AI to watch and then asked questions about automation in everyday life. It was found that, regardless of whether the film they watched depicted AI in a positive or negative light, simply watching a cinematic vision of our technological future polarised the participants' attitudes. Optimists became more extreme in their enthusiasm for AI and sceptics became even more guarded. This suggests people use relevant evidence about AI in a biased manner to support their existing attitudes, a deep-rooted human tendency known as "confirmation bias". As AI is represented more and more in media and entertainment, it could lead to a society split between those who benefit from AI and those who reject it. More pertinently, refusing to accept the advantages offered by AI could place a large group of people at a serious disadvantage.

E. Fortunately, we already have some ideas about how to improve trust in AI. Simply having. previous experience with AI can significantly improve people's opinions about the technology, as was found in the study mentioned above. Evidence also suggests the more you use other technologies such as the internet, the more you trust them. Another solution may be to reveal more about the algorithms which AI uses and the purposes they serve. Several high-profile social media companies and online marketplaces already release transparency reports about government requests and surveillance disclosures. A similar practice for AI could help people have a better understanding of the way algorithmic decisions are made. F. Research suggests that allowing people some control over Al decision-making could also improve trust and enable AI to learn from human experience. For example, one study showed that when people were allowed the freedom to slightly modify an algorithm, they felt more satisfied with. its decisions, more likely to believe it was superior and more likely to use it in the future. We don't need to understand the intricate inner workings of AI systems, but if people are given a degree of responsibility for how they are implemented, they will be more willing to accept AI into their lives.

There is ONE extra paragraph which you do not need to use. Write your answers in the corresponding numbered space provided. (0.7 point) Volunteers: All work and no pay On a winter's night in a run-down pocket of Naples, a group gathers outside a crumbling facade behind a tiny square. An oddly quiet bunch, there is no chatter, laughter or interaction of any description. Some have their faces buried in their phones, others turn their gaze heavenwards; in fact, anywhere but at each other. You could call it a conspiracy of pretence, for these people are not strangers. They have lived and worked side by side for years. What you may ask, is their problem? 79. Inside, university student Alida Benvenuto is concentrating on ladling hot soup into a bowl. An elderly lady wrapped in a shawl to keep her thin frame warm in the chilly evening air, is waiting for what is possibly her only meal of the day. It breaks my heart to see them day after day, and feel embarrassed that while have been sheltered from the worsening economic situation, they haven't been spared, reveals Alida poverty when talk to her later. 80. Curious about this lack of a social life, ask when she finds time to connect with friends or have a night off. By the look she gives me, I realise having fun isn't particularly high on her agenda. "Witnessing this level of poverty is a very humbling experience. It forces you to put others first. Can't turn my back on them when they need me here, she replies in earnest. 81. It's a sentiment echoed by all of the selfless volunteers I've spoken to in Europe's crisis-hit south, where austerity measures have eaten away at public funds resulting in an even greater need for local, community-led food programmes. Across the Adriatic, in Greece, where the situation grows worse by the day, community soup kitchens and cooperatives have sprung up like mushrooms on a forest floor. Joining them are movements fighting food waste. 82. With them acting as middlemen, their plan entailed bringing together donors and recipients. The concept has certainly caught on. On a daily basis now, restaurants, hotels, bakeries and other food points contact them with details of what they wish to donate. Welfare institutions such as orphanages, soup kitchens and homes for the elderly let the group know of their needs, and a coordinated, mutually beneficial food pick-up is arranged. Through this innovative redistribution, over six million meals have been provided for struggling welfare organisations. 83. The true benefits of this are not immediately obvious. For while community kitchens provide sustenance for thousands, the stigma of waiting in a food queue can be quite traumatic, particularly for children. However, by buying and therefore cooking their own food, families can maintain their dignity despite the soul-crushing weight of poverty. Trang 8 / 14 84. All of this gives me food for thought and consider the nature of my own charitable involvement. Just last week signed an online petition for a worthy cause. A tally prominently displayed on the page informed me that was signee number 17,388, but 20,000 signatures were required for further action to be taken; forwarded it to a few friends. Moving on to Facebook, a link directed me to a group fighting to save a local park from redevelopment, and it urged me to 'Like' it. I clicked "Like". Why not?

Enjoy parks as much as the next person. I mentioned it on Twitter. 85. Who was I kidding! A couple of digital campaigns requiring nothing more than clicks did not make me a philanthropist. It was nothing more than hashtag activism, where instead of actually doing something, pretended to care by posting things all over social media. Felt sickened by my own narcissism masking as altruism. That's not who want to be. So have resolved to get involved and de my bit. Bright and early this Sunday morning you'll find me, paintbrush in hand, outside the homeless shelter. I won't film myself or post about it on social media. I will simply contribute to a good cause, and I will do so without the promise of graphing meaningless Facebook likes in return. Missing paragraphs Shared by Angel Nelson Ninh Thuận of Otto Channel A. One is Boroume, a group that came up with a simple idea for a prevalent problem: What if instead of throwing out tons of surplus food from different sectors, it could be donated to those who desperately needed it. In 2011, co-founders Xenia Papastavrou, Alexander Theodoridis and Alexia Moatsou put the idea into practice. B. It's simple; they're ashamed. Ashamed of their poverty. Ashamed that their straitened circumstances have forced them here. Ashamed to be waiting for a free meal at a community soup kitchen. In this country of all places, legendary for its cuisine. The irony is both apparent and appalling. C. They're looking for answers that are nigh impossible to find, especially where food waste is concerned. But in trying to address the issue of hunger, they have come across a multitude of other problems. Foremost among these is the question of community involvement and how the youth can be convinced to lend a helping hand. D. There's no doubting the level of dedication or the sincerity behind the remarks. As pots and pans are scrubbed clean, and floors vigorously swept in preparation for the following evening, ask one final question. 'It's a lot of hard work. What do you get out of it?' 'Yes, it's hard, and it's often distressing, but someone's got to do it and it's a labour of love,' she says with real feeling.

E. They're not alone in reaping the benefits; the needs of the volunteers who make it all happen are also being met. At countless charities and non-profit organisations, voluntary work gives people a sense of involvement in community and a purpose. This is even more important for volunteers who are unemployed, of whom there are many in Europe's south. According to those I interviewed, helping feels good. F. She is one of a growing number of determined young adults banding together to tackle hunger: one of society's worst problems. Her evenings are not spent out with friends, but here at this citizens' cooperative, feeding the most destitute and vulnerable. On those afternoons when she has no classes, she can be found prepping the evening's meal. G. Later that same week I received yet another appeal for help. It was a text message from a friend rounding up volunteers to remove the unsightly graffiti outside a homeless shelter. Could spare a few hours on Sunday morning? I sent my apologies along with details of a fictitious prior engagement. I'm not proud of that, but I'd reasoned at the time that it was perfectly acceptable since I'd already got behind two causes that week. H. Support, in a different form, is also available for individuals and families registered with local councils. Again, in an intermediary role, the group connects the most destitute with benefactors who provide funds solely for the purchase of food. Payments are redeemed for vouchers that are distributed to the beneficiaries to make purchases at participating supermarkets.

Academic John Brennan asks whether universities should leave on-the-job training to employers. A.

There is a lot of emphasis nowadays placed on the need for universities and business groups to get graduates "work ready" through vocational workplace training. This is to be welcomed but it is also to be questioned about what it should mean in practice and how it should be applied. The concept is nothing new. I remember some years back being at a meeting about higher education and employment, attended by a number of employer representatives. I recall one employer remarking that of the many thousands of graduates that he had hired what he really wanted and expected was for each of them to have changed the nature of the job by the time they had left the role. B. Rather than being concerned with how recruits would fit into existing organisational arrangements and master existing ways of doing things, here was an employer who expected graduates. to change existing arrangements and ways of working. Who, rather than focusing on whether graduates. had the right kinds of skills and competencies, acknowledged that he didn't know what skills and competencies his workers would need in a few years' time. The very point of hiring graduates was that he hoped to get people who would themselves be able to work out what was required and be capable of delivering it and a bold new future. C. Of course, starting any job requires some work-specific knowledge and capability and when recruiting staff, graduate or non-graduate, employers have a responsibility to provide suitable induction and training. The responsibilities of higher education are different. They are about preparing for work in the long term, in different jobs and, quite possibly, in different sectors. This is preparation for work in a different world, for work that is going to require learning over a lifetime, not just the first few weeks of that first job after graduation. Current initiatives set out a perfectly reasonable set of objectives for the ways in which higher education can help prepare students for their working lives. But much will depend on the interpretation and on recognising who higher education or employer is best equipped to contribute what. Shared by Angel Nelson Ninh Thuận of Otto Channel D. In the rush to focus on "vocational training to improve graduate employability" academics need to remember that all higher education is vocational in the sense that it can help shape a graduate's capacity to succeed in the workplace. In this way higher education is about life skills, not just job skills. Many years ago, Harold Silver and I wrote a book entitled A Liberal Vocationalism.

It was based on a project we had just completed on the aims of degree courses in vocational areas such as accountancy, business and engineering. The book's title intentionally conveyed the message that even vocational degree courses were about more than training for a job. There were assumptions about criticality, transferability of skills, creating and adapting to change and, above all, an academic credibility. E. Degree courses in subjects such as history and sociology are preparations for employment as much as vocational degrees such as business and engineering. But the job details will not be known at the time of study. Indeed, they may not be known until several years later. Thus, the relevance of higher education to later working life for many graduates will lie in the realm of generic and transferable skills rather than specific competencies needed for a first job after graduation. The latter competences are not unimportant but the graduate's employer is generally much better equipped than a university to ensure that the graduate acquires them. Work experience alongside or as part of study can also help a lot. Higher education is for the long term. Universities, employers and students should realise that.

SECTION 4: WRITING (6 points) Shared by Angel Nelson Ninh Thuận of Otto Channel Part 1: Read the following passage and use your own words to summarise it.

You MUST NOT copy or re- write the original. Your summary should be about 100-120 words long. (1.5 points) In an era of perpetual cost-cutting and budget-tightening, however, guaranteeing large numbers of academics lifetime employment with related benefits is increasing untenable. The proportion of university teachers with tenure has slid from 75 per cent in 1960 to just 27 per cent today. Rising in their place are "professor adjuncts". Adjuncts are temporary, part-time employees who were initially brought in only occasionally as special guest lecturers or to provide cover for tenured professors on parental or research leave. Adjuncts teach individual classes and have no research or administrative responsibilities, and their contracts typically run for a single semester, after which they might be renewed. Over the last few decades, their use has been extended beyond these temporary exigencies, and adjuncts have become a permanent, institutionalized aspect of academic employment. This has created several problems for adjunct professors, who are considered by some to make up a growing academic underclass". Firstly, because contracts are always temporary, adjuncts rarely qualify for insurance and health benefits, such as time off with remuneration for illness, in the same way as tenured professors. Secondly, recompense for adjuncts is often very low. In order to make a living from their work, adjuncts typically need to win contracts with multiple universities. As a consequence of this high teaching workload and the lack of paid research opportunities, adjuncts tend to find it hard to publish articles and win research grants, therefore making promotion increasingly unlikely with every year that passes (academic promotion is governed by what is known as a "publish or perish" culture). The culture of using adjuncts also has flow-on effects for the quality of teaching that students receive. Because adjuncts come in only for classes, they do not have offices or office hours on campus and usually do not have the time to meet up with students in small groups or for one-on-one sessions. The disengagement between students and teachers can make it difficult for struggling students to find guidance outside of lectures. Adjuncts are also less "tied" to the universities they teach at and fail to accumulate reputations over time in the same way as full-time professors. As such, they are not as personally invested in the quality and outcome of their teaching. Finally, it has been reported that many adjuncts practice grade inflation- raising grades higher than deserved- in order to maintain their job security by keeping students pleased. These problems are not because adjuncts are malfeasant or incompetent professors, but rather because of the structural pressures this type of work involves- precisely what the tenure system sought to overcome.
