Reading Tips to start your IELTS Preparation

Preparing for IELTS and answering on the IELTS are two different things; therefore you need to have different IELTS-Reading-Sectionapproach to solve the reading section on the IELTS. You need to answer all the 40 questions asked on the IELTS and you have only 60 minutes to do that. Therefore; choose to spend your time while answering a question, excluding the reading time. The best you can do is not to waste time on any particular question, try out answering the question you are sure about. And later on, you can get back to the questions you are less confident.

Here are some tips to help you ace the test:

1.     Using capital letters, graphs, tables, underlining, italics and figures in your answers and try searching out for the titles and headings to answer.

2.     Don’t be surprised if you find the later texts and questions difficult to answer. Usually, the reading passages seem easier first and harder later, therefore, you may find the later part of the test difficult! The trick is to understand the question, follow instructions and then answer.

3.     As per the trend, the questions are usually presented in the same order as the answers in the text therefore if you don’t know anything about the subject, do not panic- try finding out answers in the text.

4.    The approach of answering the questions is different for all. Some test-takers prefer to read the passage before answering the questions while some prefer reading the questions first and then look into the passage to get the answers. Try out both to find out which suits you best. Also, do not try and read every word; try to make the best use of time as much as possible.

Using the singular and plural correctly, checking all the spellings focusing on what you are asked to do, paying attention to the word limit and attempting all questions are some of the basic factors to consider while taking the IELTS.

Good Luck!
