Some multiple choice practice exam tips!
– Remove answers that you are sure are incorrect, sounds simple enough but if you are completely sure of a wrong answer then put a line through it.
– Generally you will have a little over a minute per question. Use that time well and read and re-read the question repeatedly.
– If you are at a loss to a question then the good thing about multiple choice tests is that you can guess! Take an educated guess if you are completely in doubt.
– Go with your instinct. Your first choice and selection is generally the correct one.
