Tuesday, January 15, 2019 / 2 Comments
The real success of an exam depends more on how we perform than on how we prepare. Hence, along with preparation, certain things should be kept in mind especially in languages. Value points depend upon the nature of question and its expected aspects from the learner. Usually, format, content, organization of ideas, presentation, use of appropriate language elements are of primary focus.

Students may lose their score while they answer in a random way, just skipping off what is required. So, they must know that they have to ‘answer to the question instead answer the question’. Idea should be conveyed briefly but clearly by using correct choice of words.
