How to stay focused in IELTS reading

IELTS Reading Selecting Factors questions can be tricky, but if you follow these techniques, you will enhance your score:

  1. Paraphrase the options given

Paraphrasing the options gives you more chance of finding the correct information in the passage.

    2. Underline key words

Careful key word selection is required for this task. Once you have your keywords scan the passage for the relevant section of the passage.

   3. Give the correct number of answers

If the question asks you ‘Which three of the following factors…’ only give three. Often students give more. Don’t make this mistake.

Likewise, if you’re not sure on a third answer, make a guess ad give yourself a chance.

These three IELTS Reading tips will help you increase your IELTS score, but you also need to improve your reading technique.
