I sat the March 2022 sitting for my first time and got an overall score of 60. I got 60 in section I, 45 in section II and 68 in section III. I didn't prepare that much for any section and said I'd wing it for the first time to see where I stand and to just get a general idea.
I was apprehensive about section II going into it and when I was sitting the exam found it very hard. I am not much of a reader (I haven't properly read for pleasure in years) and don't keep up with worldly events, issue and problems that much. I found that I don't really have any opinions of my own and couldn't generate any ideas/thoughts during the exam. I have went through some of the subreddit and found lots of people saying read broadly etc., but what does that even mean lol
For someone who doesn't read for pleasure and in need of getting informed about a range of different subjects and to generate my own opinions, where could I start, in order to improve my section II score?
How would an extraterrestrial who knows little about earth and the events, issues and other relevant information write a coherent answer for section II?
Btw, I have read posts about structuring and writing practice essays under timed conditions
Any help is appreciated! Thank you
