most of the students find this section monotonous and because of this they fail to score higher bands. Like other sections, The reading test is also as much a vocabulary test because most of the answers will be synonyms or paraphrases of the question. The key is to identify the information with the help of clues or keywords . Dont panic if you have no idea about the passage given,go over the passage to know whats being asked in question, differentiate between main idea and distractions. Skim and Scan the keywords given in passage . In Acedemic test, There will be three passages and total 40 questions while in General IELTS, subsections of three passages will also be given but no of question remain the same.
