10 proven tips for reading:-

Here we have 10 proven tips for the IELTS Reading which should be considered as well as kept in the mind while going on for the test.

1.   Spend your few seconds of time analyzing the statement and then find the particular keyword in question before trying to search for the answer.

2.   Never try to respond to the answers while on the prior basis of knowledge regarding any topic.

3.   Never look for the words that exactly match the same as than those in the statements. Always look for synonyms (the similar words) because of the reason that the student indulges in matching the meaning, but not the words.

For example:-

v  Work is as the word employment

v  Changing the alternate synonym is altering

4.   Matching the keywords with that of the similar words and thus evaluating them whether they are same, regardless the synonyms, though opposite or if there is no certain match.

5.   Rectify those words which can slightly change the meaning of the phrases example occasionally, some, few, never, mainly, always, often, many.

v  Coca-Cola often makes its drinks in USA.

v  Coca-Cola mainly makes its drinks in USA.

6.   Be careful about the verbs in order to qualify the statements- suggest, claim, believe and know

v  The man claimed to be the British citizen.

v  That man is a British citizen.

7.   Do not scan the word to find the final answer. Read the particular field of the text very carefully in order to give the response.

8.   If the one is unable to find the information he/she is searching for, such that do not waste the time in looking for something which is not there, rather it is probably “Not Given”

9.   Carefully read all the instructions and even make sure “Yes/No/Not given” is accordingly different because this deals with the opinion of the narrator itself, “True/false/Not Given” deals with fact and the figures.

10.  Never use symbols like“T, F, and N&G” within the answer sheet, do write the proper word and that to in the capital letter such that it is understood by the examiner.
