Today you’ll learn the crucial tips to help you manage your time on your next IELTS Reading Exam.

The simple fact of the matter is that no one, not even native speakers, has time to read every word of all three passages and answer all 40 questions in the time allowed.

Your success on IELTS Reading comes down to efficient and effective time management.

Take notes on today’s video and incorporate the advice into your IELTS Reading strategies.



1. You need strategies!

2. Know the different question types

  • Y/N/NG and T/F/NG, for instance, is one of the tougher question types. Thus, you will need a bit of extra time to answer them.
  • Plus, it is not immediately evident how to answer these questions. You must learn and use strategies to master this question type.
  • Matching headings to paragraphs, on the other hand, should be the fastest question type to answer. You can really save time here.

3. Take 1 minute to skim

  • You must understand the gist, or main idea, of the passage before you look at the questions.
  • This saves time. If you go directly to the questions, you will not understand what they are talking about, and you’ll end up reading them more than once.

4. Limit yourself to 1 minute for every answer

5. Be comfortable with discomfort
