Some suggestions to overcome Reading

When you have the text in question in front of you, try not to focus on the details. Do a general reading and hold in your head the ideas that seem main to you.

Once you have synthesized the main ideas, underline the words that you consider most important. This is a very effective exercise to understand and summarize your answers much better.

When you have read the questions related to the text, you will see that the answers to them are included in the writing itself. Underline them as well.

Naturally, you will have to develop your answers. No rhetoric or single words without rhyme or reason. Go to the concrete with complete security.

Answers should be easily understandable. You should always give the answer in one direction with complete safety. If you write several possible answers, the most logical thing is that the examiner of your answer is wrong.

Due to the limitation of time (Exercise = 10 minutes), you have to have practiced the exercises very much from home.

So answer ALL and each one of them. Although in them you only talk about pink unicorns and multicolored penguins. However, you have to know that the spelling mistakes do subtract.

How to overcome "Writing"?

You must attend the exam having well practiced all the classes or types of "Writing" that are required:

−− An essay

−−An email-letter

−−A review

−− An article

−− A report

For which we advise you that everything you start you must develop to the end, so it is preferable to approach the ideas that you handle with ease, better than others that are more complex and in the end you do not know how to finish it.

You have to be orderly, everything you are going to undertake must have a previously prepared scheme, with which you can develop the answer much better and with more meaning. The scheme can count on opening, concessions, defenses and the final conclusion.

You have to try to be agile, showing a great diversity of vocabulary and your ability to carry out grammatical structures. It is not very elegant, therefore it would hide your true capacity if you copy words and / or structures that contain the questions.

On the other hand, it will give a good feeling not to have a misspelling or grammar. Write clear. To avoid possible mistakes, check your texts.
