You are more likely to get help on this website if you say which papers you are doing in which region of the country, and what your particular problems with comprehension are. Also, try spelling it correctly!!

I don't think it is a good idea to point out people's spellings errors. I have struggled with spellings all my life and remarks like that would put me off using this forum. Also it's clearly a typo!

unsure I think Arnesh is a young boy. ( could be wrong but other postings give the impression he's a young lad.)

Arnesh

Read as much as you can. Take a paragraph that you have read, and then summarise it in your mind, ask yourself questions about what you have read and then re-write it in your own words. I would have hoped that your teachers would have made it clear that comprehension is just that simple.

I do not agree that unsure's comments are intimidating - a dictionary will tell you that intimidation implies a threat. The comment is a critical opinion, certainly, and open to discussion. However, I'm glad to see that you obviously are capable of excellent spelling when you try - both grammatical and intimidating were most precisely spelt.

How patronising can you get Sally Anne?

I had no intention of patronising Arnesh. He appears to be an 11 - 13 year old boy taking entrance exams for two schools, as he has declared on other posts on the Forum. I was merely commenting on the variation in the accuracy of his spelling from post to post.

Given that Arnesh's post concerns comprehension, I felt it was worthwhile distinguishing between the meaning of "intimidating" and "critical" comment. That is precisely the sort of distinction that comprehension exercises are designed to test.
