Hi! Can someone please answer my question concerning the listening part?

What if I put in the answer sheet just "40" but do not complete it as "40 schools"? - Would that be considered a mistake? Or also for example, if I put just the word "research" which is the correct one but do not add the word "advanced" which is also correct basically meaning that these are two correct answers and I just put in the answer sheet one of them? Thanks in advance.

Could the answer to Q. 35 be the UK in place of England? Or does it have to be the exact word used in the audio? Also, in Q. 7, is am/pm optional or mandatory?

Hi, for the question number 2, is SWIMMING POOL incorrect? Thinking about facilities I reckon that it suits better than only SWIMMING. Thanks.

Are the numbers 11-16 and 38-40 can be interchanged? I'm confused or only 38-40? There should be a guideline for this... Thanks a lot for your response in advance.

The answers for 11-16 questions should be in exact orders as they are given in the answer section. However, the answers for 38-40 could be written in any order. Hope that clarifies your doubt.
