The C-test comprises 4 different individual texts each with approx. 25 gaps which you have to complete. The first and last sentences are already complete.
In the remaining text, roughly half of every second word is missing, i.e. half of the letters are missing when a word has an even number of letters and one further letter is missing when the word has an odd number of letters.
- If there are 2 letters in front of the gap, 2 or 3 letters are missing:
go____ -> goal OR goals
- If there are 3 letters in front of the gap, 3 or 4 letters are missing: :
tea______ -> teacher (beware: "teachers" would be incorrect - 3+5; if the correct answer was 'teachers', the clue would have to be teac_____ )
- Apostrophes (') and hyphens (-) each count as one letter
You have a maximum of 25 minutes to complete the test.
