‘How I met myself’ 3rd Term Reading Quiz – Final Round

Well, it seems that my ‘déjà vu’ in class today wasn’t wrong as Jacinto and Carlos did not participate as expected. In regards to  Manuel and Naomi, please do read the chapters  in earnest and stop pretending you are doing it just to get the points!! 😦

Once again, I’d like to remind you to read chapters and questions properly, by using a dictionary if necessary, as it will be the only possible way of improving your reading skills.

Therefore,  your score is as follows:

Anastasia: 7+8+5+0+8+8+8= 44

Naomi: 0+7+8+7+5+5+3= 35

Manuel: 6+5+7+0+4+4+4= 30

Luis: 8+6+3+0+7+0+5 = 29

Marta: 0+0+4+0+3+7+7= 21

Erika: 0+0+0+0+6+6+6 = 18

Carlos: 0+0+6+8+0+0+0= 14

Jacinto: 0+0+0+0+2+0+0= 2

Well, Anastasia remains in the lead as expected for being such a hard working student.  Let’s see how well you all do on our final round in which we will double the points, so the winner will get 16 point! So, what are you waiting for?!? Contestants here you’ve got your questions:
