Try these exercises to appreciate the various word forms that are tested in Part 3 Word Formation
You will read a short text which has 8 gaps. For each gap you have to use a given 'stem' word to make the correct form of the missing word. In the exam you transfer your answer to a special answer sheet. Part 3 tests your knowledge of the way words are formed in English, including the use of prefixes and suffixes, and spelling rules associated with these changes.
Remember that you may have to make two changes to the stem word.
Example: definite - (in)definite(ly).
Don't leave the answer sheet blank for any question. If you don't know the correct answer you should always make a guess.
When you make a note of new words try to record all its different forms (nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs).
