There are lots of different types of listening exam tasks so you must make sure you understand the instructions for the task before the test begins.
- What exactly do you have to do? Tick the correct answers? Put the pictures in order? Complete the gaps?
- If you don't understand the task, ask your teacher before you listen.
- While you listen, all your attention should be on listening, not working out what to do.
