FCE - CAE Reading and Use of English Paper - Part 7 Gapped Text

 
31

In this part, you will be tested on your ability to follow text development and to understand how texts are structured.

Part 7 consists of a long text which has had six paragraphs (FCE/ CAE) or seven paragraphs (CPE) of equal length removed and placed in jumbled order after the text, together with a seventh (FCE/CAE) or eight (CPE) paragraph which does not fit in any of the gaps. The text is usually from non-fiction sources (including journalism). This part tests comprehension of text structure, cohesion, coherence, and global meaning.

Candidates are required to decide from where in the text each paragraph has been removed. Each paragraph may be used only once, and there is one paragraph that candidates do not need to use.

Candidates need to read the gapped text first in order to gain an overall idea of the structure and the meaning of the text, and to notice carefully the information and ideas before and after each gap as well as throughout the whole of the gapped text. They should then decide which paragraphs fit the gaps, remembering that each letter may only be used once and that there is one paragraph which they will not need to use.
