B2 First: Use of English part 1 (multiple choice cloze)
In this part of the exam, you have to choose one word (from four) to complete each gap in a text. To prepare, it's a good idea to do lots and lots of reading. This is because many of the questions test how vocabulary is used, not just what it means. Here are some of the things you will be tested on:
Grammatical differences in words
You will need to know about the prepositions and verb patterns which are used after certain words. You may also be tested on relative pronouns and other referring words such as 'which' or 'whose'.
You will need to know various English expressions, including collocations (e.g. verb + noun) and phrasal verbs.
Global understanding of the text
Linking expressions - here you need to understand the whole text and how sentences link together.
