Reading Test Tips



With the reading test, there are no excuses; you can practice reading where you want and when you want. However, the following tips will help you approach the reading test.

1. Just having a very basic gist of what a text is about before you start reading will make it easier to understand. Looking at graphs, tables and any illustrations will often give you a good idea of the topic of the text.

2. Remember – there is no transfer time for the reading test. Make sure you put your answers down on the answer sheet – not the question paper. (See an example of the answer sheet below.)

3. The reading test is designed to be general and designed for people with a variety of educational backgrounds. This means you don’t need any specialist knowledge to understand any of the texts. However, some readings may be more familiar than others. 084390 00086 , IELTS Band7, 323, GMS Road, Dehradun, Uttarakhand 248001
