My scores are getting worse in IELTS Reading exam (General Reading)

by Anonymous

Hi All,

Recently, I gave IELTS General Exam 2 times and all the time I had trouble with IELTS reading test.

I have scored:

7.5 (Speaking)
6.5 (Writing)
6.5 (Listening)

But my Reading test is getting worse in each exam. First time, I scored 5.5 in reading and the last time, I scored 5.

Below are the issues that I have faced during my last 2 exams.

1. Ran out of time.
2. Not able to understand the whole passage.
3. Not able to answer TRUE, FALSE and NOT GIVEN question.

Please suggest me some tricks and techniques for scoring well in Reading test.

Appreciate, if someone could suggest me the website for improving my reading skills and speed.

Thanks all.

A great learning resource!
by: Anonymous

I want to say a big "thank you" to the man who put this teaching resource together. It is an invaluable tool for anyone preparing for IELTS or any exam requiring essay writing. I took my first exam in 2013 october and had 7.5 in writing, 7.0 in speaking, 6.0 in reading and 5.5 in listening with an overall band score of 6.5. However, i took the exam again in May last year, because i needed a higher score.I then had 7 in writing, 7 in reading, 7 in listening and 6.5 in speaking with an overall score of 7. IELTS buddy was my study guide all through that period.
Thank you IELTS buddy. More power to your elbow!

A few Tips
by: Anonymous

Well, I took my IELTS GT exam recently and got the following scores:

Speaking 6.5
Writing 6.5
Reading 8.0
Listening 8.5

So, i guess I am in a position to offer few tips here for Reading.

First, try to limit your time to 45 minutes during practice. Easier said than done but will help you a great deal during exam. You would be able to review your answers and could add a 1 band in your final score.

Second, before you start reading the passage, jump to the questions and check what kind of information you are searching. Is it some date or Name or Place. Then start skimming the passage. In this way, you would be able to underline important information.

Third and Last, follow www.IELTSLIZ.com for TFNG kind of questions. She is giving real good tips and have great excercises for practice.

Good Luck for your exam.

Regards
