    (Section 1: You will hear two conversations about registering for a student ID card. First, you will have some time to look at questions 1 to 3 [20 seconds]. Now, listen carefully and answer questions 1 to 3.)

    M = Male student

    F = Female student

    C = Clerk

    M: Hi. Excuse me. Do you know where I have to go to register for a student ID card? I’m a part-time student so I’m not sure if I can register here in the Admin Building or not.

    F: Right, there is a special office for part-time students.  The Admin Building only registers full-time students.

    M: Ok, That’s what I thought. Do you know where the office for part-time students is?

    F: Hmm. It’s in the Sports Complex but as far as I know, that area is being used for student orientations this week so it’s probably very busy. If I were you, I’d go as early as you can before it gets crowded.

    M: Oh right. Do you know the faster way to get there?

    F: Are you traveling by bus or car?

    M: Actually, I was planning to walk there. I’ve got my bike with me and I’m not sure if I can take it on the bus.

    F: You can take you bike on the bus as long as there’s space. Bus would be quicker

    M: Right, I’ll try that, then.

    F: Ok. So them from here, you need to walk round the corner to the Geography Building and you’ll see a bus stop just opposite in front on the Red Flag Café.

    M: Red Flag Café?

    F: Yeah. And wait there for bus 34. It will take you to New Street. Get off when you see the School of Law – that’s the big red building with the steps in front of it. And from there it’s only a short walk to the Sports Complex. The registration office for part-time students is on the top floor but you have to make an appointment at the Reception just next to the main entrance on the ground floor.

    M: Ok fine. I’ll do that. How many stops is it to the Geography Building?

    F: I’m not sure. It’s a 10-minute ride. Just ask the driver to tell you when you get to the Geography Building.

    M: Ok, thanks. So, bus 34 to the Geography Building then walk to the Sports Complex.

    F: Yeah. And the office is right at the top.

    M: Right, I’ll head there now. Thanks for your help. Bye.

    (Before you hear the rest of the conversation, you will have some time to look at questions 6 to 10 [20 seconds]. Now, listen and answer questions 4 to 12.)

    C: Good morning, can I help you?

    M: Yes, I want to register for a student ID card.

    C: Certainly. Are you a part-time student?

    M: Yes, I am.

    C: OK, that’s fine. Can I just take some details? Your name?

    M: Matt — that’s spelt with a double T – Jones.

    C: Matt Jones. Is that J-O-N-E-S?

    M: Yes, that’s right.

    C: What’s your address?

    M: Flat 5, 12 Green Street.

    C: Green Street. Ok. And which town is that?

    M: That’s in Newby: N-E-W-B-Y

    C: Postcode?

    M: Sorry?

    C: Which postcode is Newby in?

    M: Oh. Um, it’s … let me think … HR4 … oh ... no, sorry, I mean HR5 4JD.

    C: HR4 4JD?

    M: No … it’s HR5.

    C: Ah, ok, got it. And what’s your date of birth?

    M: 14th October 1998

    C: And your phone number, please.

    M: 08675 032 435.

    C: Thanks. Now, you need to take this form with your personal details to the cashier’s office with your ID and details of your course.

    M: Right. Where is the cashier?

    C: Just on next door to this office. Oh, and you’ll also need proof that you have paid your course fees.

    M: Oh ... I didn’t know that? Will a bank statement be ok?

    C: No, I’m afraid not. You need to bring the receipt for the course fees. You can’t get an ID card without it.

    M: Right, I see. Thanks very much. I’ll come back another time then.
