Tackling True, False, Not Given Questions --> IELTS Course Near Kebon Jeruk

IELTS Reading Test will have several types of question given to assess our skill in understanding passages. One of the possibilities is ‘True, False, Not Given’ question, which requires you to identify if information in a text is true or not in comparison to a number of factual statements.

Here are some tips to tackle these questions:
·         Read the instructions carefully and make sure you know if it is a TRUE/FALSE/NOT GIVEN or YES/NO/NOT GIVEN question. TRUE/FALSE/NOT GIVEN questions deal with facts. YES/NO/NOT GIVEN questions deal with opinion.
·         Ignore anything you already know about the topic and don’t make assumptions. You should answer based on the text only.
·         Read all the statements carefully. You should try to understand what the whole sentence means rather than simply highlighting keywords.
·         Don’t skim and scan the text to find the final answer. You will have to read the appropriate part of the text very carefully in order to understand what the author means.
·         Don’t look for words that exactly match those in the statements. You should also look for synonyms. Remember that you are matching meaning, not words.
·         Focus on the statement and carefully read the matching part of the text to establish if it is true or false. The meaning should exactly match that of the statement if it is true. Underline the words that give you the answer, this will help you focus and you can check back later.
·         Identify any words that qualify the statement, for example some, all, mainly, often, always and occasionally. These words are there to test if you have read the whole statement because they can change the meaning.
·         Be careful with verbs that qualify statements, such as suggest, claim, believe and know.
·         On most question sets, answers are in the same order they appear in the text. Just keep on reading.
·         If you can’t find the information you are looking for, then it is probably ‘Not Given’. Don’t waste time looking for something that is not there.
·         Also, if you have no idea what the answer is put ‘Not Given’. You probably have no idea because the answer is not there.
·         There will be at least one of all three answers. If you don’t have at least one ‘True’, ‘False’ or ‘Not Given’, then you have at least one answer wrong.
