-Kate: Hi, David! I'm fine, thank you! And, how are you
-David: Very well, thanks! Just a bit worried about the coming exam.
Kate: Why? Is it so difficult to pass?
David: No, I wouldn't say it's very difficult, but it's definitely important for my future profession.
Kate: I see. Are you worried about Biology?
David: Yes, I really need good marks in this exam, because I want to enter a Medical college.
Kate: I remember that you've planned to study in the field of medicine. What's so interesting in it? In my opinion, it's a very difficult job to deal with various human illnesses.
David: You're right. I've never thought it's easy. But I know for sure that working in medical field is interesting and useful. When I imagine that after several years of studying I'll be capable of treating people around me, I want to study even more eagerly. Other than that, I'm interested in various innovations.It would be great if I could make my own discovery in medicine.
Kate: Sounds great! And, have you chosen the exact field, yet? I mean, do you want to work in dentistry, gastroenterology, traumatology or any other fields?
David: Yes, I know what you mean. I want to be a humble physician, because these people's work involves lots of knowledge almost in every medical field. They should be aware of many health problems.
Kate: I see. That's a good choice.
David: Remind me, please, what did you choose to do after the school is over?
Kate: I want to go to a Law school. My parents insist on it.
David: Are you unhappy with their choice?
Kate: Kind of. I've always wanted to be an artist. You know, I'm really fond of drawing. But my father says that being an artist is more of a hobby than actual work. He says that I can draw in my free time just for pleasure.
David: He might be right. However, if you don't want to become a lawyer at all, then better refuse now.
Kate: No, it's fine. It has lots of advantages too. Lawyers sometimes deal with interesting people and cases. I will probably like the process of investigation or negotiations at court.
David: Sounds interesting! I think, you should pass Social studies to enter the City Law School, is that right?
Kate: Yes, that's true. I'm also a bit nervous before the exams. However, I think we'll do just fine.
David: Thanks for cheering me up! I feel much better now.
Kate: No problem! We can talk about it anytime.
необходимо тщательно подготовиться. Подскажите, а ведь ЕГЭ будет только в рамках пройденной школьной программы или стоит глубже учить?
