When I was young, I used to mistakenly write “althought” (✘) instead of “although” (✔); "liscense" (✘) instead of "licence" (✔) / "license" (✔), which made my teacher and friends tease at me quite a lot... hahah...

Today, I want you to share with you some words whose spellings may easily make you confused with:

Those words are frequently encountered in normal tests as well as some big English testing examination, such as IELTS.

Take care ~~~

Yes, I too often write words even though the "l" is missing :>
but then gradually I also fixed that problem, because I was reminded too many times, hihi :>

Yes, IELTS is also an English test for those who want to go to university, it is quite easy, if anyone wants to study, they can study at secondary school and then go to grade 10 to take the exam.

Khi tôi còn trẻ, tôi thường viết nhầm "mặc dù" (✘) thay vì "mặc dù" (✔); "liscense" (✘) thay vì "giấy phép" (✔) / "giấy phép" (✔), điều này khiến giáo viên và bạn bè của tôi trêu chọc tôi khá nhiều ... hahah...

Choose the item (A, B, C or D) that best completes each of the following sentences.

In 1988, for the first time in British history, a National Curriculum was introduced. The National Curriculum tells pupils which subjects they have to study, what they must learn and when they have to take assessment tests. [assessment: đánh giá]

Between the ages of 14 and 16, pupils study for their GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) exams. Pupils must take English Language, Maths and Science for GCSE, as well as a half GCSE in a foreign language and Technology. In addition, they must also be taught Physical Education, Religious Education and Sex Education, although they do not take exams in these subjects.

At the age of 16, pupils can leave school. If pupils stay on, they usually take A (Advanced) levels, AS (Advanced Supplementary) level or GNVQs (Greater National Vocational Qualifications). It is quite common to combine, for example, two A levels with one AS level, or one A level with one GNVQ.

Pupils taking A levels study traditional subjects, such as French, Physics or History. To go to university, pupils usually need two or three A levels.

AS levels are the same standard as A levels, but only half of the content: AS level German pupils take the A-level German language exam, but do not take the A-level German Literature exam.

GNVQs are vocational qualifications. Pupils usually take on GNVQ in subjects such as Business, Leisure and Tourism, Manufacturing, and Art and Design. One GVNQ (at advanced level) is equal to two A levels.

4. Which of the following subjects do pupils NOT take on GNVQ in?

A. German Literature

C. Art and Design

D. Manufacturing
