Reading Comprehension - Top Tips

  • Read the questions first so you have an idea of what information you might be looking for in the passage/text.
  • Read the passage/text carefully and thoroughly.
  • Read the questions and highlight any key words that might help you find where the evidence might come from the passage/text.
  • Read the passage again and highlight key words, phrases, headings etc. that relate to the question.
  • Look at what marks are allocated to each question.  Do not spend 10 minutes answering a question woth 1 mark and 2 minutes answering a question worth 3 marks.
  • When asked to support your answer with evidence from the passage/text use words and phrases directly from the passage/text.
  • Remember if you are quoting from the passage to use quotation marks.
  • Answer your question in full sentences - using words and phrases from the question in your answer.
  • Do not just copy large chunks out of the text.
  • Finally reread the question and your answer to check you have covered all the points asked for.
