Reflecting on reading

Students reflect on what they've learned during the course and begin work on a personal study plan.

We have now reached the final steps of the course. Before looking at some final tips and useful resources, it’s a good idea to look back on what you’ve learned and what areas you personally feel you need to work on.

Think about the skills we have looked at during the course. Which ones did you feel confident in and which ones do you feel you really need to improve? What steps can you take after this course finishes to practise and develop these skills? How much time do you plan to spend on them? Do you need any additional advice or resources to help you?

Next, think about the question types we’ve covered. Are there any that you found easier or more difficult? Do you know why you found some questions more difficult? Do you feel confident that you now know how to approach all the different tasks? Are there any you are still not sure about?

Tell us your ideas and plans in the comments below, and ask any questions you may still have about the Reading test.
