About Part 3 Word Formation

You will read a short text which has 8 gaps. For each gap you have to use a given 'stem' word to make the correct form of the missing word. In the exam you transfer your answer to a special answer sheet. Part 3 tests your knowledge of the way words are formed in English, including the use of prefixes and suffixes, and spelling rules associated with these changes.
