Tips for Reading Test

IELTS Jakarta Preparation Programs helps students to prepare for their test by providing some strategies to tackle different types of questions given in the IELTS Test.

Here is some compilation of tips to help you do the IELTS Reading Test:
  • ·         In Academic Reading, begin by going quickly through each passage to identify features such as the topic, the style, the likely source, the writer’s purpose and the intended reader.
  • ·         Reading tasks sometimes have an example answer. Study it and decide why it is correct.
  • ·         As you read, don’t try to understand the precise meaning of every word or phrase. You don’t have time, and those parts of the text might not be tested anyway.
  • ·         Skimming is the quickest way of finding out what a text, or part of a text is about, and once you know the general subject, it is easier to read for detail.
  • ·         When you have to match headings to paragraphs, skim each paragraph in turn. Decide what the main point of the paragraph is, then find a heading that means the same thing.
  • ·         Scanning is the most efficient way of locating the information you need to answer exam questions. It is important to underline or highlight key words or phrases in the questions. This helps you to focus on the information you need to find in the text.
  • ·         Some tasks require you to use words from the text in the answer; in others, you should use your own words. Check the instructions carefully. The instructions may also include a word limit, e.g. use no more than three words. Keep to this by avoiding unnecessary words in your answer.
  • ·         In True/False/Not Given questions, use the questions to help guide you through the passage. Look for clues in the questions to find the correct part of the passage then read this section carefully.
  • ·         Numbers can be written using words or figures. A number or symbol counts as one word.
  • ·         Hyphenated words count as single words.

Best wishes of luck from IELTS Jakarta!
