  9. 4. The answer is a letter (A, B, C etc.) make sure you write the letter not the actual word from the listening- another mistake so many students have Made. 5. If your answer is a name make sure the first letter is a Capital letter 6. For short answer questions or gap fills try to predict the answer, or at least think about the grammar of the answer, before listening.
