Multiple choice

Multiple choice questions can be more difficult than they first appear as often two of the options are quite similar. These tips will help you to do well in multiple choice questions.

  • Read all the options carefully. If possible, use what you know already to work out any options that are not possible.
  • Eliminate options you are certain are wrong.
  • Find the part of the text with the information. Find key words in the text that tell you which option is correct.
  • Look out for words such as always, never, might, may or could. They can help you decide if an option is correct or not.

Which do you think are easier, True or False or Multiple Choice questions? Tell us why.
