How to Pass Higher English? Keep reading!

To Pass Higher English you have to read. that sounds a bit obvious I know, but it’s amazing the number of students sitting this exam who actually don’t read.

Of course in this technical, digital day that’s exactly what you’re doing all the time: reading Facebook posts, Instagram feeds and snapchat but unfortunately that’s not enough to achieve a good grade.

I mean it in two ways:

  1. Read the texts you’re studying. Read them again. AND then read them again.
  2. It always amazes me how many students expect to get an A pass in the Higher English Exam when they’ve only read the text once. When you read the text over and over again it has a way of seeping  into your bones, your psyche that makes your ability to understand the demands of  the question and your route through that increase dramatically.

I know you’ve heard it before but when you read quality newspaper articles frequently, again your knowledge of how to construct  a good piece of writing is just there. But you have to work at it and let’s face it – reading opinion pieces isn’t hard work.

So where might you look: well, here are a few writers I’d keep a keen eye on, watch how they put an article together – the tools you’re tested on in the exam .
