The Literacy test lasts 45 minutes and is in four sections:

This section will test your ability to correctly spell the words that are commonly used in written English. (headphones will be needed)

This section will test your ability to use common forms of punctuation and apply them to the texts provided.

This section will test your ability to identify text that does not conform to good grammatical practice. You will be expected to distinguish between text that makes sense and clearly conveys its intended meaning and text that does not.

This section will test your ability to identify the main points in a text, distinguish between facts and opinions, retrieve facts and key points, make inferences and deductions, and present information in a different way from the original text.
