Remember: for this paper you have to put your answers on a separate answer sheet. You should do this with a soft pencil by filling in shapes which can be recognized by a computer. (If you are not sure how to do this, you will see an example at the top of the exam paper.)
The texts are mainly adapted from real-life texts that have been taken from English newspapers and magazines. Some of these are rather interesting, and you might enjoy reading them if you were not doing an examination. Other texts might be from things like an instruction manual or an information brochure. The CAE reading exam does not test your understanding of literature, so your text will not come from a literary work.
