IELTS Reading Test Tips

(shared from the official website of British Council)

Make the most of your Reading test :

  1. Look out for the title, headings and any special features such as capital letters, underlining, italics, figures, graphs and tables.
  2. Make sure that you understand the questions and follow instructions carefully.
  3. Pay attention to timing; do not spend too long on one passage or question.
  4. Do not try and read every word; remember, you are reading for a purpose.
  5. If you do not know the answer to a question, attempt it but do not waste time; move quickly onto the next one.
  6. Do not panic if you do not know anything about the subject of the text; all the answers can be found in the text.
  7. The word(s) you use must be taken from the Reading text; you must not change the form of the word(s) in the text.
  8. Do not worry if there is a word that you do not understand – you may not need to use it.
  9. Check your spelling.
  10. Be careful to use singular and plural correctly.
  11. Focus precisely on what you are asked to do in ‘completion’ type questions.
  12. If the question asks you to complete the note ‘in the…’ and the correct answer is ‘evening’, just use ‘evening’ as your answer; note that ‘in the evening’ would be incorrect.
  13. Pay attention to the word limit; for example, if you are asked to complete a sentence using no more than two words, if the correct answer is ‘silk shirt’, the answer ‘shirt made of silk’ would be incorrect.
  14. Attempt all questions; there are no penalties for incorrect answers, so you have nothing to lose.
  15. Check your answers
