CAE: READING – TIPS (3)

The second reading task in the exam is Task 6 in the Reading and Use of English Paper: four short texts about a similar topic, followed by four questions which focus on the opinions presented in the texts.

First, read the first question.

If the question says something like “which author shares author N’s opinion on x”, you need to go to text N, find the opinion on x, highlight or underline it, then find the opinion on x in the other three texts and compare the attitudes.

If the question says something like “which author has a different opinion on x than the others”, you need to find the opinion on x in all four texts, highlight or underline it, then compare the attitudes.

As you can see, you only read all texts in a normal way if have some extra time at the end of the Reading and Use of English Paper.
