General guidance on undertaking a BYTSYZ assessment

  • Read the directions for the whole test
  • Note the number of items and figure out how much time you have to answer each one. Remember, BYTSYZ times the test so you have a set amount of time in which to complete, the clock in the test page tells you how much time you have left
  • Answer the questions that you are more sure of first. You can skip questions whilst you are completing your BYTSYZ assessment and come back to them at the end, as time allows
  • Do not spend too long on any one question. If you really don't know, skip the question and move on - you can return to it later if time allows
  • When you have completed the questions for the first time a grid will appear in your test screen, this is made up of green and red boxes. A green box means you have answered the question. A red box means you skipped the question. Click on the question number in this grid to re-visit that question. You MUST answer all questions, so there should be NO red boxes before you finish the BYTSYZ assessment
  • Return to questions you couldn't answer initially and try them again
  • Change your answer only if you are sure your answer is wrong; research indicates that 3 out of 4 times your first choice is probably correct
  • There are no penalties for guessing, so it is always worth guessing if you don't know the answer
  • Don't waste time reviewing answers that you are confident are correct

Specific guidance on undertaking a multiple-choice BYTSYZ assessment

  • Every BYTSYZ question will have a root and four possible answers. ON every occasion ONLY ONE answer is correct
  • Read every question carefully and slowly - you have enough time, rushing will lead to misinterpretation of the question which can often lead to the wrong answer being selected
  • Read the question and answer it in your mind then look for the matching answer
  • Read all the alternatives, and access the probability or improbability of each one before making a decision
  • Note and compare appropriate grammatical structure from the question with the possible answers
  • General statements are more likely to be correct than specific statements
  • Re-read all questions containing negative wording such as "NOT" or "LEAST". Be especially alert to the use of double or triple negatives within a sentence - these must be read very carefully to assure full understanding
