Sentence completion and line matching

Foundation tier papers may include questions in which you have to complete a sentence or draw lines to match correct options. These questions will include 'distractors', which are incorrect choices.

Make sure you only use words from the given list. When you answer a line matching question, use straight lines rather than complex wavy lines. Do not draw more lines than necessary to answer the question.

These questions have been written by Bitesize consultants as suggestions to the types of questions that may appear in an exam paper.
