- CHECK YOUR WORK CAREFULLY.

- Do not leave anything empty. Guess if you do not know the answer at all.
- If you have time, read your composition more than once to spot mistakes.
- Your corrections must be clear.
- Write as many words as indicated, e.g. Use one to three words for each note.
- Do not worry at all. If you do, drink something or take some deep breaths.
