  • compare the language of the texts

Give your text a suitable title.


A company in the UK is offering apprenticeships or traineeships to young people from Scandinavia. They have apprenticeships and traineeships in every vocational area. There will be a lot of competition for the positions so you will have to sell yourself well to win the company over.

Create a text that could win you one of these apprenticeships or traineeships.

You should include information about:

  • which traineeship or apprenticeship you are aiming for
  • how your education and training have prepared you for an apprenticeship/traineeship
  • situations during your work placement that have given you valuable experience
  • why you are the best person for the apprenticeship/traineeship

You have studied cultural and social conditions affecting people in English-speaking countries during your course and while working with the preparation material.

Create a text about one of these cultural or social conditions that you have studied and discuss who the winners and losers appear to be. You should refer to texts from the preparation material and/or sources that you have worked with during your course.

Give your text a suitable title.


In the extract from "Divergent" by Veronica Roth (text 9 in the preparation material) several characters compete for power and authority.

Create a text discussing the way these characters behave towards each other as they try to be winners in the extract you have read. Then compare these characters’ behaviour with the behaviour of the characters in another English-language text or film who are also struggling in a situation where winning is important.

Give your text a suitable title.
