3.5.1 Sentence completion
In this question type, you are required to read a set of sentences summarising key information from all the listening text or from one part of it. You will then fill a gap in each sentence using information from the listening text. A word limit is given, for example, ‘NO MORE THAN ONE WORD AND/OR A NUMBER’.
You will be penalised for writing more than the stated number of words. You should check this word limit carefully for each task: the limit is either ONE, TWO or THREE words. Contracted words will not be tested. Hyphenated words count as single words.
Sentence completion focuses on the ability to identify the key information in a listening text. You must understand functional relationships such as cause and effect.
