IELTS Reading Tips/ IELTS Reading Strategies

To know more about how to score a high band in IELTS examination, you can go through these simple tips below:

  • You don’t have to understand every single word which is in the passage. If you cannot understand a particular word you can look at the other words around it which may give you an idea about the context.
  • Before focusing on improving your IELTS skills, you have to try to improve your reading skills. You should practice reading the English language and try to understand the vocabulary.
  • More than a reading test, its a vocabulary test, so your vocabulary is tested more than your reading speed.
  • Practice IELTS reading slowly as well as quickly, keeping the exam in mind. You should try to focus on the mistakes and improve on them.
  • Do not leave any of the questions blank. If you do not know the answer, at least attempt to solve it.
