I am writing to you in order to apply for the New Star Scholarship.
As you can see from the attached grade sheet, I am one of the top students in my department. I have also represented the university at the 8th English Speaking Contest, where I was placed first. It is because I have attained such high standards that the Dean, Prof. Wang, suggested I apply for the scholarship. I believe that I do not only do well in my study, also contribute to campus life and our university in my extracurricular activities, particularly as departmental head of the Student Union.
Thank you in advance for considering my application.
You are preparing for an English test and are in need of some reference books. Write a letter to the sales department of a bookstore to ask for:

(3) time and way of delivery
Dear Sir or Madam,
As a student to take CET-6 in this coming December, I am writing to ask if there are some high quality test preparation materials.
I wonder if you have the following books: a vocabulary book covering the 5,500 words for the CET-6 test as well as past test papers with keys and model essays and a Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, which I can turn for help. Besides, how should I pay for these books? By cash or by other means? Finally, if I order these books now, when can I get them and how will these books be sent to my house?
I would be grateful if you could give me an early reply.
Write an essay of 160-200 words based on the following pictures. In your essay, you should:
1) describe the drawings briefly,
2) explain its intended meaning, and then
3) give your comments.
You should write neatly on ANSWER SHEET. (20 points)
This picture is humorous but reveals a profound meaning. According to this figure, we can see that two individuals are digging wells for water with spades. However, one person gives up looking for water because he digs even three holes but still cannot find any water, while the other one insists on digging one hole and finally receives an abundance of water.
This picture tells us one principle which is a famous proverb called “Success belongs to the persevering”. It is obvious that the chance of finding water is fair enough to the two men. Nevertheless, the reason leading to the completely different consequences is only their different attitudes. As students, we should not doubt that the God will favor one special group and feel upset and hopeless. To be frank, our society is realistic and it provides everyone with same opportunities. We need to seize the opportunities, correct our attitudes and be down-to-earth persons. I firmly believe that we can achieve our goals by persevering painstaking efforts. Nothing is impossible as long as we do our best. In addition, sometimes insisting itself is not absolutely unquestioned. If we choose an unpractical goal, it is just a behavior of wasting life. On the contrary, it is wise to set an objective cautiously and then keep going without any complaints.
To sum up, selecting a right target and always working for it is of great significance for all of us.
