Matching-Heading Questions

As there are many different types of questions asked in IELTS Reading Test, students need to get familiar with all of them. In IELTSPreparation Course, students are provided with practices and strategies that will improve their familiarity with those different sets of questions.

Here are some tips for matching headings with their paragraphs/sections compiled by IELTS Jakarta to help you with your IELTS Test:

1. Do heading questions first
Headings summarize the text. By finishing them first, you will have understood the context of each paragraph and are mostly helped to scan the answers to the other questions later.

2. Read the instructions well
Some heading questions allow you to use a heading more than once. Make sure you read the note in the instructions first.
3. Read through the list of headings
Getting familiar with the headings is important as you will be scanning for the target words or just identifying certain keywords as the main idea of the paragraphs in the passage.

4. Look for answer to the shortest paragraph first
Shorter paragraph means shorter amount of time to skim throught it. Fewer headings to choose are then left for the longer paragraphs.

5. Look for the most general heading
For most heading questions, the most general heading may be the answer for the first paragraph or the conclusion paragraph as both provide introduction and summary for the article, respectively.
6. Figure out the difference of similar headings
When you have similar headings that you are unsure about, it might become handy to write them beside the paragraph and try to figure out the difference between them. Pay attention to the keywords and understand how these words modify the meaning of each heading, then pick one that matches the paragraph best.
7. Be aware of similar words/synonyms
Most heading words that match exactly with words in the passage might not be the correct answers! Many correct heading answers are in fact written with synonyms.
