Some people find it very easy to exceed their budget. They are tempted to purchase goods that they do not really need, and can become quickly overburdened by debt. The credit cards often charge a high rate of interest, which exacerbates the problems for these people.However, used wisely credit cards can improve the quality of people's lives. They can give people access to money to meet sudden unplanned expenses. Properly handled, they can let people control their expenditure and the monthly statements provide a record of where their money has gone。

英文原文： Nowadays, campus construction has been brought into focus. According to a survey, almost all the schools and colleges are rebuilding their campus: not only the teaching buildings but also the circumstances. In this essay, I will discuss the importance of campus construction and offer my own view on it。
A lot of efforts have been made to better the campus environment, in particular, the construction of a green campus. Many colleges have taken serious measures to build environmental friendly campus, such as lawns, artificial pools, and tree-lined roads. However, in my view, this is only the initial step and we can do more。 To begin with, the schools and colleges may implement strict regulation of waste on campus: no matter the leftovers in canteens or the litter in classrooms. Moreover, on the student side, we can use green bags instead of disposable plastic bags and use more recycling chopsticks and bowls. In addition, the most important thing for everyone is that we should raise our awareness of environmental protection。

It sounds strange since young college students are usually intelligent, well-educated phenomenon, aspirant and eager to bring their talent into full play. Then what underlies the strange phenomenon? There are several reasons for this. To begin with, nowadays college students aim too high. All they want are “good” jobs which could offer good salary, comfortable working conditions, high social status among others. Consequently, most college students are unwilling to accept vacant jobs they consider not “good” enough. Another reason is that there is a big gap between the majors some students study in school and the demands of vacant jobs. So companies think some students are not fit for the jobs. Solution to the problem requires efforts on both the society and the students. The companies should value the students, talent and knowledge while the latter should not merely aim at material gains. They should be down-to–earth in building up their career. Furthermore, they should face their weak points so as to improve themselves and be more competent. 点评：本预测题为社会热点话题。近年来大学生就业难日益成为各级政府及社会各方面关注的焦点，媒体也广泛报道了大学生就业形势严峻，呼吁全社会共同努力；此外，该预测题也与大学生就业密切相关，也是四级作文选题重点之一。

题目：Create a green campus
Create a Green Campus
It is of great importance to make and maintain a green campus in our university or college. Obviously, a growing number of people are beginning to realize that it is our duty to do that in the present days, since the concept of “a green world” has become the focus of the society.
The idea of “a green campus” is beyond a green environment. To begin with, the development on the campus is to be sustainable and recyclable. Some of the authorities' budget should be on how to reduce of the waste. What's more, we'd better be aware of the seriousness of pollution around us. Thus the idea of environmental protection may become a common occurrence in our daily life.
It is necessary that effective actions should be taken to protect our campus from waste and pollution, and hence these activities are to play an increasingly important role in our day-to-day life. Certainly, there is little doubt that further consideration must be paid to our green campuses.

Forthis part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitled Educationpays based on the statistics provided in the chart below (Unemployment rate in2010). Please give a brief description of the chart and then make comments onit. You short write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
As is shownin the chart above, the unemployment rate in American society remained high in2010. Nonetheless, people with better educational background seemed to sufferless from unemployment. For example, the unemployment rates of people withdoctoral, master's and bachelor's degrees are 1.9%, 4.0% and 5.4% respectively.However, 9.2% of individuals with only high school diploma cannot find a job.Worse still, the unemployment rate of people without a high school diploma evenreached 14.9%.
In today'sfierce job market, getting a suitable job is becoming increasingly difficult,not to mention a well-paid one. I am convinced that the crux of this disturbingproblem lies in the fact that job hunters do not possess the skills orknowledge the employers need. Therefore, they always fail in the jobinterviews.
As we allknow educational fees are high. Nevertheless, compared to the host of benefitseducation brings to students' future, they seem nothing. Education is a worthyinvestment in every way. In conclusion, education pays.
