    What can I do to improve my performance at the Reading test?
    • Make sure you answer the questions asked. It might help to read the questions before you read the passage.

    • Manage your time. Do not spend too much time on a question you find difficult. Answer the others and then come back to it.

    • Look at visuals and subtitles to get a general idea of what the passage is about.

    • Identify the topic sentence in each paragraph. This will give you a clue to the answers.

    • Use reading strategies such as skimming and scanning to help you find the answers. Don't worry if you do not know the meaning of every single word in the text. Try to guess the meaning of the words you don't know from the context.

    • Correct grammar and spelling are important.

    • Make sure you go through your answers to check if they are relevant to the questions asked and if the language used is correct.
