Tips

  • Before answering a question, read the passage a number of times to make sure you are aware of the context.
  • Read all the questions. The questions can often provide clues to help you understand the text better.
  • Don't worry if you do not understand all the vocabulary. You may not have to know the meaning of that difficult word or phrase. There may not be a question on it or the question itself may explain it.
  • Use your dictionary only if you have to.
  • If you do not understand a question and you have tried all the tricks you know, leave it and come back to it.
  • Remember, at the end of the day you have to try and gain as many marks as possible. It would be foolish to spend too much time on one question worth two or three marks and run out of time to answer other easier questions worth more marks.

You will have picked up information about the topic of careers and associated vocabulary in your Unit work. There follows an example of a text extract and the kind of questions you might be asked if the Question Paper contains a Reading text centred on the topic of Careers.
