'O' Levels English Comprehension help !

I seem to always have difficulties answering comprehension questions and understanding them, no matter how many practices I do. Anyone have any comprehension skills to share? Or tips to improve? I've been scoring 5/20 for my comprehension homework all the time, & this is really depressing I tried reading books but doesn't help at all... What should I do?

Re: 'O' Levels English Comprehension help !

understanding the passage is very important . You really need to understand before attempting any questions .
The questions nowadays are pretty simple , but the answers are so different from expected .
In 2010 , the way of answering questions changed , so you need to consult your teachers to understand it better .

No choice. Read simple books. Find those kind which has comprehension passages/ explanatory notes at the end so that you can verify that you really understand the book. This will greatly aid your learning process

Re: 'O' Levels English Comprehension help !

Try to find a link, i.e. common words found in the question to those found in the passage. More often than not, the answer isn't far from that word/phrase/sentence. For 'O' Levels, it's alright to lift from the passage, so just lift. You should be fine.

Re: 'O' Levels English Comprehension help !

I did my o level english last year on my own. And got C5.
Some things to notice.
Understand it and picture it, read the questions over and over again to make sure you fully understand what the question is looking for. Do take note of past/present tense so as to answer the questions in correct form. Answering techniques, learn from teacher.
And lastly, focus. I tend to lose my focus as I'm weak in english last time.
I wish you all the best for your o levels..
