Without the right strategy, reading comprehension can be very challenging for many students. This exam measures a student's ability to read and interpret meaning from written passages with some questions also requiring students to correct, complete and punctuate sentences.
It's often challenging for many students who may lack concentration while reading, connect ideas in the passage, gloss over detail, have difficulty distinguishing significant information from minor details and are often confused about the meaning of words and sentences.
This course is broken up into four main sections and aims to address the above challenges and more in the following way:
- In the first section of this course, students will learn essential speed reading skills.
- The second section will outline specific approaches on how to answer the different types of questions students will likely be faced with
- In the third section, students will be introduced to some of the specific text types that may appear on the exam
- The final section will go through grammar, punctuation and spelling questions may also appear on the exam.
