● several line answers Some questions are followed by a few lines. This gives you space to write more words or a sentence or two.


● longer answers Some questions are followed by a large box. This shows that a longer, more detailed answer is needed to explain your opinion. You can write in full sentences if you want to.


● other answers For some questions you need do no writing at all and you should tick, draw lines to, or put a ring around your answer. Read the instructions carefully so that you know how to answer the question.
