So you’ve cleared your HLLQP courses and received your certification. The next step is to pass the HLLQP provincial exams. Now, it can be challenging but with the right help and these exam tips, you will be well prepared to pass.
Write The Paper HLLQP Exam And In-Person If Possible
For most students that can accommodate it, we recommend the paper-based exam. The biggest reason is because you are able to make notes, underline key parts of the question, and more to help you understand the question better.
I also find it easier because you are able to flip back and forth between different questions and change things any time.
Read The HLLQP Exam Question Carefully
The questions you see on the HLLQP exam will be similar to the practice questions you’ve already seen. That means they will be looking to trick you in a few ways:
- Double negatives
- Hiding important details
- 2 or more of the multiple choice options will be similar
Reading the question carefully and using underlines and other markings will help you get a clear understanding of what the question is asking.
Answer Every Question
There is no penalty for answering a question incorrectly. Even if you don’t know the answer, just guess because you will have at least a 25% chance of getting it right.
Tips For Guessing Answers
There are only 4 multiple choice options for each question and usually 2 will be obviously incorrect. That generally narrows things down to 2 options so you have a 50% chance of guessing correctly.
There are also 2 options that contradict each other. When you see that, you know one of them must be the correct answer.
Do Not Leave Early
Stay calm and relaxed during your exam. The closer your emotional state feels to when you are studying, the better you will do on your exam. Make sure to take your time with each question and use all of the time available to you.
Don’t forget, the HLLQP exam is open book so you can take your time to review the reference materials to double check your answers.
Do Not Change Your Answers
Unless you see something later on that contradicts your answer or have some good reason, do not change your answers. Most of the time, if you have studied well, your first answer is the correct one.
