IELTS Energy 280: How to Make the IELTS Reading Test Simple

IELTS Reading timing and strategies

The biggest mistake that students make is that they over-complicate and overthink the IELTS Reading test as well as all other parts of the test.

This is especially detrimental to your score on the Reading test because you do not have time to read the full passages.

You need a strategy.

In our course we offer you three steps to follow that work on the Reading test.

Many students are skeptical of our strategy and they think that it seems too simple but then the high scores get reported back to us and they see that the strategies work.

Here is an email from a listener:

“Timing is my main problem in reading.

I have never finished it.

Most times when it’s 5 minutes until the end I lose focus and start putting down any option that comes to mind so I know it’s bad.”

-IELTS Energy Listener

 

Your problem is timing!

In our course we now have a Power Hour that is dedicated to reading.

The Reading test is 3 passages.

You have 1 hour to answer all 40 questions.

It’s impossible to do it without a timing strategy.
