Keep Calm and Pass the Exam

The exams are just around the corner. Here are two useful tips to share with your students.

Interpret the task correctly

Anne Marie Torp, from Asker vgs., put together this popular course in 2016, and it is just as relevant today. Its main aim is to make students aware of what the exam tasks require them to do. The course includes explainations of the most frequently used instructional words and a step-by-step guide on how to interpret the exam task.

Revise your text

Students are likely to benefit greatly from looking through their texts several times on the exam, with a different revision focus each time. The text below is from E2, our textbook for International English, but is equally useful for vg1 students.
