I’ve tried my best to make a comparison between the Olympic contest’s structure and the National exam’s. Note that the National exam’s is based one the latest test, not from the official guide. (It was nowhere to be found, wasn’t it?) Practice Tests for Olympic contest posted on this blog will be based on the newest structure.
What materials should I use?
- TỔNG TẬP ĐỀ THI OLYMPIC 30 THÁNG 4 MÔN TIẾNG ANH 10 & 11 (the huge collections of tests from 2007-2011)
- TUYỂN TẬP ĐỀ THI OLYMPIC 30 THÁNG 4 MÔN TIẾNG ANH 10 & 11 NĂM 2012
* It’s not necessary for you to hunt for tests in the previous years (2000-2006).
- Materials recommended in CAE Materials & CPE Materials (on the menu bar) and those already posted on the blog.
* Try to make full use of what you have already had. It’s not necessary for you to hunt for books published over 10 years ago. They are outdated, aren’t they? Materials are always updated. Instead of wasting your power hunting for such materials, why not use it for practice?
- Materials recommended by your teachers or any relevant resources you may find. However, be careful and wise when you choose materials. There have already been a lot of English reference books published in Vietnam, but not all of them are really useful for you. Sometimes, you are confused by your friends who say you should use this book and shouldn’t use that one. In that case, trust yourselves and your teachers! Don’t be distracted and stop what you are doing, but focus on finishing all you have.
- It’s optional for your to use Practice Tests on our blog. We will also collect the best study tips for exams from trusted sources.
