The task requires you to create a literary text entitled “Old enough” about a young person who thinks that he or she is old enough in a particular situation. The text must be set in an English-speaking country and mention one or more facts or opinions from the preparation material.
You can write any type of literary text, for example a short story whose plot is centered on a young person who thinks that he or she is old enough for a particular activity. Remember that the task requires that the person in your text must be from an English-speaking country. It might be useful to pick a country from the table in text 8, because it directly tells you the legal age limits for a range of activities in various English-speaking countries. This will help you be accurate in your text. It might be wise to choose a country that you are somewhat familiar with, such as the UK or the US, or one of the countries that you have worked with in class.
You can use texts 1 to 8 in the preparation material as inspiration for your composition. You can find summaries of all the texts in an earlier section of this study guide.
