Your reader


Characteristics of Readers

  • Lots of papers to read

  • Possibly tired

  • Possibly bored

  • Possibly on a tight deadline

  • May not be motivated to look for ways they can give points


Help your reader give you points


Make the parts of your answers clear

  • Two “WHATs”

  • Two “WHYs”

    “Provide two suggestions and for each one explain the benefits”

    Suggestion 1: WHAT because WHY

    Suggestion 2: WHAT because WHY


Even quality across all answers

  • Don’t make your first answer lengthy and then run out of time so your last answers are very short.

  • Answer in such a way that you can maintain the same quality across all answers.


No extra words

  • Don’t write transitions or introductions

  • Focus the bulk of your writing on making a good description of your suggestion and a good description of the benefits of your suggestion.


Read questions first

  • Reading the questions first will allow you to focus on the aspects of the case history that most apply .


Activate brain

  • Use the structure of the test to your advantage:

  • Quick pass through multiple choice

  • First case history—answer both questions

  • Second quick pass through multiple choice—you will probably get more answers here.

  • Keep alternating until your test is done
