I am a dope. I have been teaching this exam so long that I should be used to this now, but the FCE exam no longer has the exercise in the Use of English paper where the student is required to find the extra word in a line. I was told this, but forgot and kept using my favourite old books and kept making the students do similar practice exercises. It is good training, but is no longer pertinent to the exam. Doh! Advice therefore today is to keep up to date with the shape and the form of the exams. And by the way, my FCE guys taking the mock on Saturday had better finish on time. It's England vs Wales on in the afternoon and if you are late I will miss the beginning of the game.
