    Hi, for the two close reading passages at higher english, should you:

    1. Read both passages then answer questions or,

    2. Read passage 1 do questions, then read passage 2 and do it's questions?

    Think I read passage 1 first then passage 2, but honestly think it doesn't really matter.

    The only advantage I can see either way is that if you use the 2nd way then the 2nd part of the text will be fresher in your mind when answering questions on it.

    It's personal choice, but overall option 2 is probably better, mainly because you will have forgotten the second passage after doing passage 1 meaning you'll have just been wasting time.

    I skimmed both passages so that I knew what was going on, then read the relevant bits for each question closely again before answering.

    Reading everything means you don't have to do that again for the last question. It also makes it easier to answer the occasional 'link' question.

    2. I tried 1 on my first close reading, ran out of time.
