小作文部分考察了地图题—校园布局在三十年内的变化，新的一年考生们还是需要把每种题型都扎实准备;大作文难度不大：社会文 本次考试写作难度适中：小作文部分考察的是传统图形饼状图，在实际写作中需要特别关注小作文中描述发生在未来事件时应该适应的时态(一般现在时下表预测：be projected to, be expected to, be predicted to, be likely to);大作文较为新颖，是社会文化类话题的一个分支。需要注意的是大作文中描述的全面性：需要同时论述着装与工作质量;如果仅仅论述其中一个方面会出现跑题。

题目Some people believe that employers should not be concerned about the way their employees dress, but the quality of their work.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
参考范文The importance of dress code and appearance at workplaces has already been recognized and accepted, yet many are opposing a mandatory dress code as they believe the quality of employee’s work is far more significant to any enterprise. Personally, I believe it would be wise to lean more towards the working performance.
Making sure everyone in the workplace is dressed to certain standards cannot only create a general atmosphere of professionalism—whether it means three-piece suit or jeans-and-T-shirt. This is of great value in industries where image is highly valued and workplaces where face-to-face contact between employees and customers is regular and consistent, as when customers look at employees, they can see people who are dressed appropriately for the industry, which may boost their confidence in the business as a whole. Besides, such visual uniformity in the workplace can also promote the impression of “being a team” among the workforce, which can eventually stimulate sales by making employees conspicuous to customers.
Despite the benefits brought by dress code in enhancing working performance, one must notice the potential downsides of implementing one in certain industry, as clothes have a huge impact on how people feel, their confidence levels, and how they interact with others. An example of this is when everyone is forced to wear a suit and tie, a stuffy and conservative environment may highly likely be inherently created. In fact, for those innovating enterprises mainly focusing on inspiring creativity of employees to yield profits, a strict dress code is going to be counterproductive. Therefore, the appearance of employees is not with universal importance.
Overall, the priority of practicing a dress code should be determined by the nature of industry, as the pursuit of performance is the sole goal of any company.
