1. Can you skim a text for important information (key terms) without reading the whole text?
2. Can you scan the text for only the information you need to answer a question?
3. Can you use different forms of a word? E.g. A word in the text is given as a verb but you have to use the noun form in the answer.
4. Can you understand statistics and use words to describe what the numbers say?
I have made three YouTube clips which give some advice on answering Part A. I have gone through each question on the Answer Booklet to explain the type of question and reason for the answer. The transcript of the videos is available as a single pdf on this website.
