What should I do? Besides reading the question more carefully which I understand but don’t do and using a highlighter what other options are there. No bad comments please but advice would really be helpful!

Have you ever been assessed for a SpLD? If you are aware you do this but can't seem to correct it, it is possible that you have an issue .

Hi. Well I’ve not considered it but I know that this was happening in GCSEs as well that’s why I took a highlighter to all my exams which was useful but I get frustrated and annoyed when I know the answers and look back and see that I’ve read the q wrong especially when we get our tests back in alevels. I guess I could carry on with a highlighter but I want to do something more for it

I find that highlighting or underlining really helps and haven't found anything better.

You are just going to have to practice and get them marked, until you slow down and focus.
For essays I might use a piece of paper to cover up the rest and slow reveal so the question goes in or might double check I understood what was being asked.

Practice will get you there.

Yeh I guess practice is the only way. That’s a good idea for the essay

Theres no excuse its carelessness and lack of focus.
If you get it wrong then a big proportion of what you write later could be irrelevant.

A person in my exams had a small device which read out the question through earphones. Think it was from the exam department so I would go the the exam person and speak to them

I usually underline anything useful and box anything that I think I'll forget (e.g. the amount of decimal places needed for a maths question)
