WAEC 2020: check out the secret of getting "A1" in English Language

Good day, PhiscoTecH is back again! This time I'm going to load your brain with different tricks and tips on how to pass English language with ease. Count yourself among the lucky ones if this article pass your timeline.

In case you missed my article on "WAEC 2020: check out the secret of getting "A1" in mathematics" click here. Do not fret, the link won't take you out of opera mini.

I'm still getting a lot of encomium about my recent article on "WAEC 2020: calculator tricks and shortcuts for mathematics".

The good news is that I am not stopping on English. There are more to come because I want your result to look like the one below.

Quick one 

Emphatic Stress Trick 

This trick is popular, but not everyone knows about it. This is not where we are going today but I will like to share a simple trick on it

The instruction is always like : 

In the following sentences, the word that receives the emphatic stress is written in capital letters. From the questions lettered A-E, choose the one to which the given sentence is the appropriate answer. 

This type of question is always asked at the end of the objective section. Sometime about 3 or 5.

The trick to this question is to check the options, pick the one that does not contain the word in capital letters.

For example:

The principal often flogs ERRING pupils

(a) does the principal often flog disciplined 

(b) does the principal often ignore erring pupils 

(c) does the matron often fly erring pupils 

(d) does the principal often flog erring teachers 

The answer to this question is option A because it's the only one without the word ERRING.

Bring out your past question and try different questions, if it works please like and follow PhiscoTecH.

Let's go to the majors of this article.

Summary Writing 

Students often make mistakes when summarizing. Some even copy the passage directly and call it a summary. While some write bunch of extraneous paragraphs and wonder why they got low marks.

Tips on how to write a good summary 

 1. Use your own words - a good summary should be written the way you understand the passage.

2. Do not write what is out of the passage - using ur own words doesn't mean you should write ideas that are not stated in the paragraph, even if it is correct. It would be marked wrong.

3. When using a preamble, ensure it starts with a capital letter and ends with a semicolon.

4. Always number with roman numerals, not alphabets or numbers.

5. Avoid copying the passage word for word.

6. The summary should be brief and concise.

7. You must write a complete sentence.

8. Do not write more than one point in a sentence 

9. Do not write more than the required sentence - (say no to ITK!)

10. Avoid grammatical and expression errors.


Still confused? , feel free to ask questions in the comment section.

That will be all for this article. However, the next article will focus on synonyms and antonyms, letter writing, comprehension passage tricks, etc. I don't want to put all in one article because readers get discouraged when they see a very long article. Some don't read to the end.
