    Пошла - это правильно. Означает, что она опять начала это действие (ходить в школу).
    Ходила здесь будет уместно, если рассказчик хочет показать, что действие длилось какое-то время.

    100% )
    although, I guess one could say "[это] она [негодяйка] насоветовала мне посмотреть этот фильм", и "он ходит в бассейн, когда [водобоязнь его немного отпускает, и он опять] любит воду"

    "poshla" is correct. "hodila" would be unnatural, unless you wanted to say something like "after the vacation, I was going to school again for a couple months, but then finally dropped out".

    Q 25. Каждый день я иду ... в университет
    Good for you... Do you ever go home?
    this one is fine too.

    a) Повтор "думаешь ... думает" выглядит неэстетично.

    б) Считаю, что "продвинутый" студент, не говоря уже о носителях, имеет право на "Choice 1". Смысл будет совсем другим.


    2. Приняв мои замечания, Саша согласился.

    Странная фраза. Похожа на "масло масляное". Намного лучше "выслушав".


    3. Если вы хотите сдать экзамен, вы должны хорошо ...
    готовиться
    готовить

    А если экзамен сдает повар?
