a) Reading Section: There are passages given in this section which the students have to read and based on the passage there are questions which are supposed to be answered. The best way is to read the questions first and then later the passage. This approach helps a lot as while you are reading the passage you are able to identify the sections in the passage which has the relevant answer.

b) Writing Section: Concentrate on the vocabulary while you are in this section as this will give you those extra marks.
