Multiple Choice Tips

tips to remember
  • Read each question carefully, looking out for negative words such as Except, Not, and False.
  • Read all possible answers and cross out those you feel are incorrect; narrowing down your choices gives you the chance to make an educated guess.
  • Be cautious of words indicating absolutes, like most, least, all, and none.
tips to remember ii
  • Connect the specific information of the question to broader trends and themes.
  • In questions that provide you with evidence, assess the information carefully and eliminate answers that go beyond the bounds of the evidence given.
  • Make a habit of checking your answer sheet frequently throughout the testing time to ensure that you are filling in the correct ovals — especially if you skip questions or leave some to come back to later.
