1 STRATEGIES FOR APHUG MCQ SAMPLE MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS Directions: Each of the questions or incomplete statements is followed by five suggested answers or completions. Select the one that best answers the question or completes the statement. The multiple choice section is worth 50 percent!

2 “Cracking” the MCQ! 1.Read and rephrase (sometimes this is all you need!) 2.Categorize into a unit if applicable 3.Don’t just let the question ask you… *YOU* ask the question! 1.WHEN? WHO AND WHERE? WHAT? 4. Process of Elimination 5.Guess and Go 6.REMEMBER, FINISHING IS NOT YOUR GOAL. ACCURACY IS YOUR GOAL!

3 Step 1: Read and Rephrase the Question Make sure that you know exactly what the question is asking. Taking the five seconds to read a question twice. The choice between a right and wrong answer is sometimes the product of misunderstanding a question!

4 Step 2: When? Who and Where? What? So you tried step 1. You read the question over and rephrased it but are still unsure of the answer. Now apply Step 2. Don’t let the question ask you. YOU ask the question! Look for context clues. Is there a person that the question is looking for (who) a place (where), a time (when) period, a theory or model (what)

5 Step 3: Process of Elimination If you went to Step 2 and were able to at least eliminate one answer choice, move on to step three and continue with a process of elimination. Sometimes a question will ask all EXCEPT. This means that four of the choices are correct and one is wrong. Sometimes a good clue will be to look for related answers and pick the one that stands out. POE can help you eliminate 3 or 4 answer choices.

6 Step 4: Guess and Go Human Geography does have what is commonly known as a guessing penalty. (-1/4 point) But if you implement some of these strategies turn the guessing penalty into your guessing reward!

7 Let’s practice the steps with a few questions.
