Exercise 2: Read the two passages carefully and choose the correct answer.

A student who will be over 21 on commencing a course is classified as a mature student.
Cambridge applicants are encouraged to study either four or five Advanced Subsidiary (AS levels in Year 12. Applicants taking four subjects will not be disadvantaged compared with those taking five subjects. The university administration would normally expect A grades in subjects which are particularly reI-evant to the course a student is applying for. More challenging offers may be set to ensure that an applicant can cope with pressure and the demands of exams.
Advanced Extension Awards (AEAs are based on A level subject criteria and require no additional teaching or resources. They are designed to challenge the most able students and to provide opportunities for students to show logical and critical thinking skills and a greater depth of understanding than required at A level.
