In this part of the exam the candidate must read a sentence and then complete a second sentence with 3-6 words so that it has the same meaning as the first sentence. The task provided you with a word that you must use in the exact form. If the word is SAID, you must use SAID and not say or saying. DO NOT CHANGE THE WORD PROVIDED! It is a test of your grammatical and lexical knowledge. Sometimes the sentence can be completed with only 2 words or more than 6, but these answers are not valid as the task states that you must use 3-6 words, in other words, the word provided + 2,3,4 or 5 more words.

 

Try the Deleting Technique. You take the sentence transformation, for example:

You´ll have a great time no matter where you go

REGARDLESS      You´ll have a great time ________ where you go

YOU MUST CONSIDER WHAT IS THE SAME IN BOTH SENTENCES AND THEN DELETE WHAT IS THE SAME IN THE FIRST SENTENCE

You´ll have a great time no matter where you go

REGARDLESS      You´ll have a great time ________ where you go

YOU ARE LEFT WITH NO MATTER AND ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS THINK OF THE SYNONYM FOR IT.

Answer: regardless of

 

Sentence transformations are easy as they are very repetitive. You need to recognise the patterns and learn the typical phrases that are used!
