IELTS Reading Preparation Material: Top 10 Tips to Increase Your Score

The IELTS Reading section is the second part of the IELTS test and is taken immediately after the Listening section. You’ll have 60 minutes to read three long passages and answer 40 questions. The difficulty of the IELTS Reading section comes from having to understand a large amount of text and accurately answer questions about what you read in a short amount of time. This is especially true for the Academic Reading portion of the test, as you’ll be presented with more difficult text. Today, we’re sharing 10 study tips to help you get a high score on the IELTS Reading section!

Why You Should Take a Practice IELTS Test

You know you have to complete an IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam to study abroad, but you begin to wonder whether or not you should take a practice IELTS test beforehand. Our answer: definitely.
While you may have spent a lot of time preparing for the actual exam, there is absolutely no harm in taking a practice test. You will get a chance to familiarize yourself with the format of the exam, see how well you work under pressure and see if you’re in need of more practice in certain parts of the exam. Whether it’s reading, writing, listening or communicating — the more practice you get, the better.
