Which section do we do first in the G.E. paper?

Of course the section you’ll defnitely get the points!

For you, that is VERB TABLE! There are at least 10 points in this section and it’s ONE grade of your test already!

Then the Vocabulary and the Grammar sections! You want to get rid of all those spellings from your brain and feel relaxed to do the rest which you need to think attentively afterwards.

Leave the Proofreading and Comprehension sections at last, because you can be safe and feel for sure that you have already got the points from the other Grammar sections in which the answers are pretty definite.

This is my personal experience/opinions on the time allocation:

1. Verb Table                                                                3-5 minutes

2. Vocabulary and Grammar sections                         10-15 minutes

3. Comprehension                                                       10-15 minutes

4. Proofreading                                                              5-10 minutes

5. Check if I’ve made any careless mistakes¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬†the rest of the time


                                                                                            45 minutes

Vivienne Tam, a Hong Kong-bred fashion designer, is now based in New York.

She was born in Guangzhou and grew up in Hong Kong. Her interest in fashion was inspired by her parents, who usually made their own clothes. By the time she was eight, she was already designing and making clothes for her siblings.

As told by Vivienne, perseverance is the key to her success in the fashion world. She keeps trying and never gives up. She launched her own label in 1994. Her East-meets-West design is very popular.
