Exam Terminology

Understanding Exam Questions and Assignment Titles

Exam questions and assignments can be worded in many different ways, and as a student you will need to write on a huge variety of topics, often with a confusing range of instructions.  If you are unclear about the terminology used in exams and assignments, it is easy to lose marks in assignments and exams for not focusing on the question correctly.  This glossary of terms will help you to understand what is being asked of you, but you should never be afraid to ask your tutor or professor for clarification if you do not fully understand the question.  Bear in mind that s/he set the assignment to assess your knowledge on the subject, not to assess whether or not you know how to answer assignments.
