Tips and tricks for passing IEB Sepedi FAL

Knowing where to start studying can be tricky. Here are some tips and tricks for passing your exam: 

  • Know your literature: Many language subjects often require you to answer questions about the literature that forms part of your syllabus. Make sure you know your course work before entering the exam because many of the questions are based on this! Try websites like SparkNotes to help you understand the literature. 
  • Learn the rules: Language is all about rules. Make sure to know your rules well before the exam. This includes poetry, grammar and comprehension. Try practising past papers to get used to applying the rules in practical situations. 
  • Try a study group: Study groups are a great way for you to learn topics that you might not have known beforehand. It’s also a great opportunity for you to discuss the coursework and literature to get a better understanding of it. 
  • Get help from a different teacher: Teachers each have their way of explaining the coursework. A different teacher might explain things in a way that is easier for you to understand. Try getting a tutor or learning from a teacher on youtube.
