Reading Test Strategies
In preparing for IELTS, try to read as widely as possible. Read articles or reports on a range of subjects, so that you become more familiar with the type of academic vocabulary that is used.
When doing a Reading test it is very important to read the texts carefully before you start answering the questions, but don’t worry if there are some words that you don’t know. Practise trying to guess the meaning of unknown words from the context.
Decide how much time you will spend on each section and keep to your plan, so that you don’t run out of time. Remember to allow time to check that you have filled in your answers correctly on the Answer Sheet.
