Tips on How to Succeed

Before the exam
  • Take diagnostic test(s) to determine which grammar points you most need to study.  
  • Focus on what you don't know well.   Look for clear explanations and practice exercises for the grammar that you find the most challenging.
  • Practice with contextualized exercises.  The best practice exercises are those that ask you to choose the best answer within a story or conversation - not just within one sentence.
During the exam
  • Quickly scan the next sentence before answering a question.  This will help you to choose the best answer for the context.
  • Relax.  If you don't know the answer to one question, don't panic.  Make an educated guess and move on.  The next question may be easier.  
  • Answer every question.  There is no penalty for a wrong answer.
