Look quickly at the text to get an overview of format - headings, diagrams, etc.
Read a text very quickly the first time to get the main ideas.
Read the questions first to get an idea of what to look for in the text.
In general, spend about 1 minute on each question (you will tend to spend less on the first ones and more on the following ones; difficulty increases).
Read each question or group of questions carefully, then scan text to find possible answers.
Underline and mark the text e.g. question numbers against text to check later.
Follow the instructions (it is not so obvious!!! Pay attention to detailed instructions - i.e. Write no more than TWO words).
If you are not sure of an answer, write it down in such a way you remember to check it later (highlight, underline, question mark).
If you think a particular word is important, try to guess its meaning from the context.
If you are not sure which answer is correct (A, B, C or D / T, F, NG), guess! (DO NOT leave any questions blank because the paper is not negatively marked).
It is better to complete the test by rushing over some difficult questions, than not to finish the test.
Good luck folks! :)
