Use everything on the page to help you in reading exams. Sometimes there are clues in pictures, headlines or paragraph headings.
 
  • Predict what the text is about. What do you already know about the topic or subject? Your background knowledge will help you understand the text.
  • Look at the title, headline or pictures to help you understand the text.
  • Identify the type of text. Is the text a newspaper article, a web page, an advert or a story? Knowing the type of text will help you understand it.
