Tip 1: Start reading:

Also, make sure you don’t take long big pauses.

Scanning is when you are looking at the passage for a specific piece of information. Try to focus only on the keywords. You will find the answer to every question.

Tip 5: Dealing MCQs:

Reading the question carefully should be your first and the foremost step. Once you understood the question perfectly, look for the word “NOT” in the question statement to select the correct answer. The second step is to read the passage properly to find out the answer. Take two minutes to solve these questions.
