Category: IELTS Reading

It’s quite simple to find the breakdown of the IELTS Reading section online so we won’t go into too much detail here. If you need an explanation of any of the different tasks, in particular, we recommend you visit our IELTS reading lessons on YouTube.

Here is a list of the different tasks you will see in the IELTS Reading section:

  1. Matching Question
    • Matching Information
    • Matching Headings
    • Matching Features
    • Matching Sentence Endings
  2. Multiple Choice/ Identify Information Tasks
    • A/B/C/D
    • True/False/Not given
    • Yes/No/Not Given
  3. Completion Tasks
    • Sentence Completion Task
    • Summary, Notes, Table, Flow-chart Completion Tasks
    • Diagram Completion Task
  4. Short Answer Task

The thing is though- you only have one hour to read three texts and answer 40 questions. That is a tall order for anyone! You need to spend every minute of this time tackling the content of the questions, not wasting time on working out what the questions are asking in the first place!
