Seriously. There is no substitute for being well read when it comes to the Ielts test.
- Now, do you want
an Ielts reading tip that will help you get a better score on your
- Points lost due to students not following directions on the Ielts
reading module are legion. (many, many) Eliminate simple, correctable mistakes by reading the
directions before you read the text.
- It doesn't do much good to study endless hours in preparation for
your exam only to lose valuable points by not reading the directions.
- Let's say you prepare for your
exam by doing as many Ielts reading practice exercises as possible. You've seen all of the question types
and feel confident about your reading abilities - never scoring less than a band 7 on practice
- Normally, I'd say that's great!
However, what if on your test they have a question style that you haven't seen?
- And what if that question style
asks something that you haven't practiced before in your preparation?
Before anything else, before
even thinking about
answering the question, read the directions! What's more, make sure you follow them. This is the most practical Ielts
reading tip I know to give.
And guess what?...
You'd be surprised at how many
students I catch making simple, correctable mistakes - mistakes that can mean the difference between a 5.5 or
6.5 ban score - simply because they didn't read,
understand and follow the directions.
Don't let this happen to you!
