В 2019 году все учащиеся 9 классов должны будут получить допуск к выпускным экзаменам. Для этого 13 февраля 2019 года они должны будут получить «зачёт» на итоговом собеседовании.

В 2019 году все выпускники дошжны будут сдать 4 ОГЭ: 2 обязательных (ОГЭ по русскому языку и математике) и 2 экзамена по выбору. Баллы за каждый из четырёх ОГЭ будут переведены в оценки. Соответствие баллов оценке будет объявлено накануне экзаменов. На Федерально портале «Российское образование» можно посмотреть официальную информацию о том, как переводить первичные баллы ОГЭ в оценки. Обращаем ваше внимание, что цифры носят РЕКОМЕНДАТЕЛЬНЫЙ характер. В аттестат обычно ставится средний показатель между оценкой за ОГЭ и годовой отметкой по предмету. Баллы за ОГЭ будут напрямую влиять на то, смогут ли выпускники 9 классов претендовать на место в 10 профильном классе.

Если ученик получит «двойку» хотя бы по одному экзамену, то получить аттестат он не сможет, пока не пересдаст ОГЭ повторно на удовлетворительный результат (то есть преодолеет минимальный порог баллов). Если ученик получит одну или две «двойки» на ОГЭ, то каждый экзамен он сможет переписать дважды — в резервные дни и в дополнительный период. Если учащийся получает неудовлетворительные результаты по 3 или 4 ОГЭ, то пересдать экзамены он сможет лишь в сентябре. В случае успешной пересдачи каждый выпускник получает аттестат (даже если он пересдавал в сентябре).

 The ninth planet of the solar system was discovered not long ago. It happened in 1930. Scientists had been hunting for the planet for a long time. They had calculated its probable position but there was no proof that the planet really existed. It was too far away for the telescopes of that time to find it. It’s worth mentioning that the first photos of the planet were taken by a very young researcher. He was only twenty-four and had no formal education in astronomy. However he was deeply involved in the search for the ninth planet. The planet at the edge of the solar system was called Pluto, after the Roman god. The name for the planet was suggested by an 11-year-old British girl.

Pages of history

A. 

Australia once had close ties with Great Britain. Until fifty years ago, almost all Australians were of British or Irish origin. But after World War II more than two million people arrived from Europe. New Australians, as they were known, were from Greece, Germany and Italy. Mass migration has changed Australia into a multicultural society. Today, people of Anglo-Irish origin are a minority. Many recent immigrants are from South East Asia, the Philippines and China .

B. 

Australia’s prosperity has been founded on its natural resources. It produces almost every mineral from gold to uranium. Traditionally, Australia was a farming country and its wealth was founded on wool, cattle and wheat. It is still a major exporter of food, making it the breadbasket of Asia. Agriculture and mining, however, employ comparatively few people. Tourism is now Australia’s largest industry, employing 6% of the population. More than three million visitors come to the country each year.

C. 

In spite of the importance of the bush to Australian folklore, 90% of Australians live in cities. Almost everyone lives within a few kilometres of the sea and of the ocean. The beaches are used in same way as parks: families have picnics, people of all ages jog, play volleyball, swim or just walk. There is great interest in water sports like water skiing, surfing, swimming and sailing. Every city has tennis courts, allowing half a million people play competitively.

 

D. 

The Dutch were the first Europeans to see Australia, in the early seventeenth century, but they found no opportunities to settle or trade. English explorer James Cook landed near Sydney 160 years later and claimed it for Britain. But still no one could think what to do with it. The American Revolution provided a solution. America had been used Australia as a dumping ground for criminals, mostly the unfortunate poor from cities created during the industrial revolution.

E. 

Australians used to live on a diet of lamb and potatoes. But with such a variety of climates and with so many ethic groups, the Australian diet has changed dramatically. Cities like Melbourne and Sydney are proud of their huge range of ethnic restaurants and multicultural cuisine, ranging from Italian to Tibetan. The barbecue is a national institution. It is an informal event for people and there is nothing more refreshing than a swim before eating fruit, fresh salads, and steaks.

Прочитайте текст. Определите, какие из приведённых утверждений 10–17 соответствуют содержанию текста (1 – True), какие не соответствуют (2 – False) и о чём в тексте не сказано, то есть на основании текста нельзя дать ни положительного, ни отрицательного ответа (3 – Not stated). В поле ответа запишите одну цифру, которая соответствует номеру правильного ответа.

Christmas Tree Memories

My name is Ted. I grew up in the 50s, but my childhood memories are still alive. The most pleasant of them is the family Christmas tree. Besides my mum and dad, there were five children in the family. We all took part in decorating the Christmas tree, one way or another. It was a special time for me as dad took us for a trip to the winter forest.

The experience was special as only boys were allowed to go to the countryside to pick out the tree. At the age of five I felt proud to be in a man’s adventure. I remember walking through the forest with dad looking for the perfect, large tree. We had a tall ceiling in the living room, so a small tree did not look right there.

At the age of five, even a small tree seemed great to me. To measure a tree I raised my hands above my head and looked up. If I could reach the top of the tree I thought it was big enough. Dad, however, always chose the perfect tree very carefully.

Once he had made his choice, he took out an axe to cut down the tree. I wanted to help my dad and brothers, but they always told me to stand back. When the cutting began, I tried to hold the tree up. I was afraid the tree would fall on them and I felt strong enough to hold it.

After the tree was down we took it to the car and went back home. I don’t remember how we got that large tree through the door, but it was always right. Then dad got the tree to stand up and we could start the decorating. The tree, the boxes with decorations and a tall ladder took up the whole room.

All the family took part as mum gave everyone a task. I had to pass the decorations. What I liked best about the Christmas tree were the lights. When everybody else had left I stayed in the room and watched the lights travelling up and down the Christmas tree.

Dad had one more special job that day. Mum took her favourite ornament, a lighted angel, which she had got as a present from her family. Dad climbed up the ladder and fixed the angel at the top of the Christmas tree. When I looked at the angel, I thought Santa was close to my house.

Everyone, and the decorated shining tree, was ready to celebrate Christmas. It was so big that it nearly touched the ceiling. I felt I was a small part of a big adventure. The last few years we lived in that house the trips to the forest with dad ceased. We bought an artificial tree instead.

Ted’s family had a tradition of decorating the Christmas tree together.

Ответы и решение – Демоверсия ОГЭ 2018 АНГЛИЙСКИЙ ЯЗЫК проект

Раздел 1 (задания по аудированию)

1)

Dialogue А — In a shop
A: Can I help you?
B: Yes, please. You see, I want to adopt a puppy, but I don’t know much about
dogs or how to take care of them.
A: Right. I can recommend this book. Have a look – it gives a detailed
description of the most popular breeds of dog so that you can choose which
is the best for you.
B: Oh, and it also contains very good pictures! These puppies are so cute! Yes,
I’m taking it …though the price is rather high… Anyway.
A: The cash-desk is over there.
B: Fine. Thank you.

Dialogue B — In a hotel
A: I’ve got a complaint, I’m afraid.
B: What’s happened, sir? Just let us know. We do everything we can to keep
our guests happy.
A: The problem is …that …there’s a dog in the room next to mine.
B: Yes, and what’s the actual problem? Many of our visitors choose us for just
that reason. We admit pets which is very convenient for those who travel
with animals.
A: But why did nobody tell me about that? The dog barks! I can’t sleep
properly at night.
B: Sorry, sir. But the only thing we can do is to offer you another room. I’ll just
check which one would be quieter.

Dialogue C — In a park
A: It’s pretty cold today, isn’t it?
B: Yes, it is. But I’ve got used to walking in any weather.
A: Is it because you have to walk your dog?
B: Yes. Twice a day, at least. We are heading to the pond at the moment – there
are special facilities for dogs there, like ladders and ramps. Are you going
there too?
A: Oh, no, I’m going home. That’s enough jogging for me for today. Too cold!

Dialogue D — At a party
A: Are you leaving? So soon?
B: Yeah. I have to. I need to walk my dog and he won’t accept any excuses on
my part.
A: Yeah, I understand… What kind of dog have you got?
B: A Labrador. He’s very clever but hates it if we don’t follow his routine.
A: That’s a shame… I mean that you are leaving… because it’s so cool here.
And the music is great.
B: Ok. Just one more dance and I’ll be off.
A: Yay! A good decision.

2)

Speaker A — The speaker describes his/her school classroom.
It’s large and spacious. There is a whiteboard, desks and a teacher’s table but the
most interesting feature is the special graffiti wall. We can write all kinds of
questions on the material we are studying at the moment. For example, if you don’t
understand something, you can write your question on the wall and another student
or teacher writes the answer.

Speaker B — The speaker talks about his/her favourite subject.
I’m always glad to come to this room some time before the lesson and study the
maps on the walls and samples of stones and rocks on the shelves. Yes, I find
geography very interesting and it’s not a problem for me to spend hours writing out
facts about famous travellers and their discoveries. My favourite classroom activity
is studying and completing maps.

Speaker C — The speaker explains what his/her friend is angry about.
My grade for the Maths test was unusually high but I’m not happy about it at all.
My friend Tracy isn’t talking to me because of this. The thing is that in the exam
room I sat next to Tracy and she’s sure I copied the answers from her paper. That’s
not true but she doesn’t believe me. She thinks I cheated and she hates any
dishonesty.

Speaker D — The speaker talks about his/her after-class activities.
I study in a large and modern school with well equipped classrooms, a good gym
and a swimming pool. The latter are very important for me because I use them
practically every day. When the lessons are over, my friend and I go to the gym to
exercise or to play volleyball. Twice a week I have a swimming class and my
friend does all kinds of experiments in the school chemistry laboratory.

Speaker E — The speaker explains how to use the school library.
Students’ performance depends a lot on their ability to research and look for
information by themselves. On the shelves the books are arranged in the
alphabetical order. To find the book you need to know the author. There is also an
electronic catalogue and access to the internet resources. Just type in the key word
to find whatever you want.

Задания 3–8

Now we are ready to start.
Kevin: Hi! I’m Kevin. Can I sit here?
Kate: Yes, sure.
Kevin: And what’s your name?
Kate: Kate.
Kevin: Is this your first visit to Paris?
Kate: Yes, I’m from Canada and this is my first visit to Europe or anywhere
else. I’ve never been abroad before and everything seems very exciting.
And where are you from?
Kevin: From Liverpool. My family’s lived in that part of England for ages and
we seldom travel anywhere either.
Kate: My parents are completely different; they travel a lot because of their
job, but they’ve never taken me with them.
Kevin: I see.
Kate: But this time we are travelling all together as a family. Today we are
going to have a guided excursion of the historical part of Paris. Are you
here on your own?
Kevin: No. It’s a school trip. The whole class are here and two teachers to
supervise us.
Kate: Oh, it must be interesting travelling in a large group.
Kevin: Yeah. We were awarded this trip when we won the city competition.
Kate: Was it a sports competition?
Kevin: No, it was a competition for school rock bands.
Kate: You’re a musician?
Kevin: Sort of. In our band I play the drums.
Kate: Do you see music as your career? Everyone nowadays wants to be
either a celebrity or a computer genius.
Kevin: Not in my case. Music is just for fun. I’m deeply interested in physics
and biology. I think that absolutely fantastic discoveries are awaiting us
in these fields. They could completely change our idea of the universe
and of ourselves.
Kate: So, you want to do scientific research?
Kevin: Exactly.
Kate: But that means getting a very good education…
Kevin: Yes. This is my last year at school and I hope to start my university
course this summer. I’ve got good grades and it makes my plan sound
quite realistic.
Kate: Yes, it looks like a good one. You seem to have planned your life very
well. I can’t even make up my mind on what souvenirs to buy for my
friends back home…
Kevin: I’ve found a shop with some old photos of the city. I bought several
pictures there as gifts for my friends. They’re not expensive and the
images are lovely.
Kate: Yeah, I think that would be better than heavy souvenir mugs or T-shirts
with prints. Could you tell me where the shop is?

3) Where does Kevin’s family live?
1) In Canada.
2) In France.
3) In Britain. — Kevin: From Liverpool. My family’s lived in that part of England for ages

supervise us.
3) On his own.

1) He wants to be in show business.
2) He wants to be an IT engineer.
3) He wants to be a scientist. — I’m deeply interested in physics and biology. I think that absolutely fantastic discoveries are awaiting us
in these fields.

2) To continue school.
3) To travel abroad.

2) Printed T-shirts.
3) Souvenir mugs.

A. A personal vision
Two people never see the same rainbow. Each person sees a different one. It
happens because the raindrops are constantly moving so the rainbow is always
changing too. Each time you see a rainbow it is unique and it will never be the
same! In addition, everyone sees colours differently according to the light and
how their eyes interpret it.

B. The scientific explanation
A rainbow is an optical phenomenon that is seen in the atmosphere. It appears
in the sky when the sun’s light is reflected by the raindrops. A rainbow always
appears during or immediately after showers when the sun is shining and the
air contains raindrops. As a result, a spectrum of colours is seen in the sky. It
takes the shape of a multicoloured arc.

C. A bridge between worlds
Many cultures see the rainbow as a road, a connection between earth and
heaven (the place where God lives). Legends say that it goes below the earth at
the horizon and then comes back up again. In this way it makes a permanent
link between what is above and below, between life and death. In some myths
the rainbow is compared to a staircase connecting earth to heaven.

D. The real shape
We all believe that the rainbow is arch-shaped. The funny thing is that it’s
actually a circle. The reason we don’t see the other half of the rainbow is
because we cannot see below the horizon. However, the higher we are above
the ground, the more of the rainbow’s circle we can see. That is why, from an
airplane in flight, a rainbow will appear as a complete circle with the shadow of
the airplane in the centre.

E. A lucky sign
In many cultures there is a belief that seeing a rainbow is good. Legends say
that if you dig at the end of a rainbow, you’ll find a pot of gold. Rainbows are
also seen after a storm, showing that the weather is getting better, and there is
hope after the storm. This is why they are associated with rescue and good
fortune. If people happen to get married on such a day, it is said that they will
enjoy a very happy life together.

F. Impossible to catch
You can never reach the end of a rainbow. A rainbow is all light and water. It is
always in front of you while your back is to the sun. As you move, the rainbow
that your eye sees moves as well and it will always ‘move away’ at the same
speed that you are moving. No matter how hard you try, a rainbow will always
be as far away from you as it was before you started to move towards it.

G. Some tips
To see a rainbow you have to remember some points. First, you should be
standing with the sun behind you. Secondly, the rain should be in front of you.
The most impressive rainbows appear when half of the sky is still dark with
clouds and the other half is clear. The best time to see a rainbow is on a warm
day in the early morning after sunrise or late afternoon before sunset. Rainbows

Have you ever heard of the Great Barrier Reef? It is the world’s largest coral
reef system along the eastern coast of Australia. In February 2009 an extraordinary
position was advertised by the Australian Tourism Office. The advertisement ran
that the Great Barrier Reef needed a caretaker for half a year. It was for a special
person who would look after the Reef.
The job offered a large salary, free accommodation in a luxury villa, and
transportation there and around the islands. All expenses would be paid: the winner
wouldn’t need to spend any extra money on anything.
The job’s duties were pretty simple. You could only dream of such
requirements. First, the person had to speak English and swim well. Second, on the
island his responsibility included writing a weekly Internet blog. That’s right,
weekly, not even daily! The job description also required the successful applicant
to explore the islands of the Great Barrier Reef, swim, make friends with the locals
and generally enjoy the tropical climate and lifestyle. A real dream!
Within the first 2 days of the contest, the tourism office received more than
seven thousand online applications. All told, 34,000 people of all different
nationalities applied. Each made and presented a 60-second video resume. They
had to be creative and they were. In the end 16 people were chosen, who flew to
Australia for the final selection. The candidates were interviewed and the winner
was Ben Southall from the UK.
Ben greatly enjoyed the dream job he had got. He realised that people knew
very little about planet earth and its treasures. Living in big cities, they forgot how
important the flora and fauna of this world were. Every time Ben went outdoors, he
could discover something new. «Every time I dived or went underwater, I forgot
about all the troubles above water and concentrated on living in the moment. It was
a good way to clean the mind and build respect for the natural world,» Ben said.
Ben’s life on the island was not just fun. It was very busy, busier than most
people imagined, and certainly busier than Ben himself had imagined. He worked
seven days a week and up to 19 hours a day. The Best Job included travelling to
over 60 islands of the Reef almost every day. It was not just looking after the Reef,
Ben had a lot of meetings, press conferences and interviews. He was getting a lot
of attention all the time and he couldn’t get away from it. That was probably the
hardest part of the job.
Moreover, any adventure has a certain degree of risk. Swimming and diving
on the Great Barrier Reef was not different. Ben had to deal with whales, sharks
and other huge sea creatures. Surprisingly, the most dangerous thing was a small
jellyfish about the size of a little finger. It’s considered to be extremely poisonous
and Ben was stung by it. He had to spend a couple of days in hospital but luckily
recovered after a course of antibiotics.
Ben often says that the project has taught him a few valuable lessons.
Working with the Internet is one of those jobs you can do 24 hours a day. Ben
realised it was hard to separate life and work, but this he had to do. He also said:
«I’ve learned that we get one life on earth so we have to use it. There’ll always be
other countries to visit, other people to meet and other adventures to meet. This is
what I wish to do. I’m planning to go to Asia in a few years time».
