Congratulations! You've made it to Level 3 of the CE paper! SO ... take a deep breath and get ready for....

  • The DIVINE FORTY-NINE!

 In fact, there aren't that many extra words to learn for Level 3 - and some of them are so easy you're bound to know them already....!

There are once again a few more numbers required for this level: you need to know the multiples of ten (30-90) plus 100 and 1000.
