1.Focus on reading the question carefully to understand what it is actually asking, not what you expect .
2. Learn vocabulary consulting a dictionary, any unfamiliar word you may meet in order to enrich your vocabulary and reuse it at the exam and gain higher marks!
3. After reading the question, think carefully about which may be the correct answer prior to give it.
4. Focus on main parts of the question to find out which is the relevant information asked .
