There are specific strategies for both of these question types, and, if you follow the strategy here: ielts.allearsenglish.com, matching headings should actually be the fastest question type to answer!

Here is a tip for IELTS reading matching title to headings questions.

by Mike
(Sydney)

A method that helped me a lot to answer title/header matching questions is reading each paragraph one by one and immediately choosing the best title/topic from the list.

If you go the other way you have to read all paragraphs for first title/topic and all but one for second and ...

But using this method only one time you read the paragraph.

This can also be applied to multiple choice topic matches.

Hope this helps.

Tip for IELTS reading matching title to headings questions
by: IELTS buddy

Hi,

Yes that is correct.

You do not want to read the whole passage, and then go through and start matching the headings.

If you do that you will likely end up having to skim through the whole reading again to find the answer.

It is better to look at the first paragraph, then see which heading fits, and place it next to the paragraph.

Then go on to the next paragraph.

You can practice that here:

Reading tip for matching headings to paragraphs

by kushal
(Kolkata,India)

Hey friends, I just appeared for the i.e.l.t.s exam and got an overall score of 8.5.

Reading-9, Listening-9, Speaking-7.5,
Writing-7.5.

I have got a tip for you guys.

During the reading session, while answering the questions concerning choosing the option with the correct heading, try to read each paragraph first and then immediately browse through the headings and answer the respective question.

This should be done after each paragraph, this will help you in answering the 1st 5-7 questions while simultaneously reading the whole essay.

P.S
This is only helpful when you are answering the questions where you have to choose the correct heading for each paragraph

Articles in sentence completion type questions

by Nageswara Rao

Hi,

In sentence completion type questions, do articles play important roles?


like if the correct answer is 'an entry point' but I filled 'entry point' only, then do they consider it as correct answer?

Sentence Completion Questions
by: IELTS buddy

Hi,

Yes they do matter. It is a 'sentence' you are completing and the sentence must be grammatically correct.

So if it needs an article to make the sentence grammatically correct you must put it in, and missing it will mean you do not get the mark.

Question Order in IELTS Reading

by Thushara

In Academic Reading is there any order in the questions related to the answers in the passages?

For example, like in a series of questions, the answer for the third question is later in the passage than the answer for second question.

Is there truly such order in Academic Reading???

Order in the questions
by: IELTS buddy

Hi Thushara,

Most questions do tend to follow the order of the text, but that's not true of all of them.

Please take a look at my Reading Lessons on the href="http://www.ieltsbuddy.com/ielts-practice.html">IELTS Practice pages and it will tell you which ones do or do not.
