I've found that my marks are lower in the solomon, ranging from 6070. I've done about 5 for each and in each paper there's often questions, I've never seen in standard papers...

This is from Solomon D Stuck on 2 b) Mark Scheme: I did 2.7/4 for frequency density (since width is 4x of the 3034 class) and then did 2.7/4 * 20 for the frequency which would be 13.5. But for some reason they divided by 3, why so? Thanks.

Any tips on how to get marks on the C4 comprehension paper? The 20% would benefit me a lot since I'm personally not too confident on C4 itself. Grade boundaries often lingers around mid 60s to mid 70s. So getting marks in the comprehension is definitely gives me some kinda insurance incase I mess up some questions in C4.
