Dear madam
I have a doubt regarding reading answers
Whether to write answers in capital letters .
Secondly how to write yes no not given
And true and false answers during the actual test.
I suggest you write all answer using all capital letters for both reading and listening. You can write TRUE, FALSE or NOT GIVEN. It is also possible to write only the letters but make them very clear and easy to read.
