Reading Comprehension Section
The reading section contains one or two passages and a set of questions based on the passage. Students have to read the passage and answer the questions. So this section essentially checks the attentive reading skill of a student. Passages could be taken from the books, newspapers, journals or any other source and can be based on diverse topics. Hence, a voracious reader is at the benefiting end.
Command in English, as a subject, develops over a period of time. It is not a sudden process of memorisation. Hence, a habit of diverse reading can help students score better. When coping with the examination, time limitation becomes a student’s greatest adversary.
In order to strengthen the weak areas, students must keep in mind some tips and tricks:
Special attention should be paid to words that are similar in meaning.
An eye for detail is necessary in order to grasp the major points of the passage.
Every passage conveys a hidden message or theme. Try finding that out. This will help you derive meaning of the text easily.
Pay attention to the format, that may carry marks
Write short sentences
Avoid writing in a passive voice
Revise for clarity
The questions in literature section have two or more sub parts. One of them being objective (reference to context) and another being a subjective question (opinion based).
To tackle the first part, students must have a thorough knowledge of their prescribed text. However, reference to context targets the sections of a textbook that are more important as compared to others. For example, a significant conversation between the important characters, a speech or a fight.
While answering subjective questions, students should explore their creative writing skills abundantly, at the same time, validating their answers by referring to the specific text.
