Some useful IELTS reading tips, while we prepare the tests!
Do NOT worry! if you can’t answer a question, skip it and move onto the next questions. You can always go back to the question. Do Not waste all of your TIME on one question!
An important thing to remember with reading is the TIMING.
To practice this at home, time how long it takes for you to find certain words in a text (get a friend to choose a word/phrase in the text), each time you should improve your time.
A quick tip when scanning, is to read backwards, read from the bottom of the page, backwards. I bet you beat your previous time!
Answer as many questions! You do not get marks removed for incorrect answers.
Keep to the word limit asked for by the question. (‘No more than two words’ – Don’t write 3 words!)
