Examples of test tips

The answers will come in question order on the recording (Listening)

Underlining the main idea in each paragraph will help guide you to the information you need to find (Reading)

Even if you believe the answer is not TRUE according to your knowledge and experience, you must find the evidence in the passage (Reading)

When you write your introduction, avoid copying whole phrases from the question (Writing)

Using appropriate linkers is important but don’t start every sentence with one (Writing)

If you give very short answers, you will lose scores. Aim to give 2-4 sentences for each answer (Speaking)
