    Respected Madam,
    It is quite informative, but I am still confused, special the NOT GIVEN. I usually fail to get that particular Question.

      Hello, Anwar. One of the reasons people become confused is that some test materials are not written by trained experts and so they are not written well. This causes a lot to confusion. Can you send me an example of a Not Given that you have found difficult to understand?

      Best wishes

        Hi Pauline,
        I got error 404 when I clicked on the link :(, any other website could allow me to retrieve the video? Thanks

          I’m afraid they have removed it – I don’t know why. I will make a new version myself in the next few weeks.
