4 Tips for Multiple Choice Questions in IELTS Reading

Hi. Here are the tips to take note of when you get to see multiple choice questions in the IELTS reading module.

1. These are tricky questions that provide choices which are:
-not stated in the passage;
-stated, but are not relevant;
-stated but could refer to a different topic; and
-opposite of the the passage has stated.

2. Skim and Scan the passage for the correct answer.

3. Don't spend too much time on a particular item. Skip, but make it a point to go back to the item/s skipped if you still have time.

4. Cross-out the choices that you have identified as incorrect.

Next week, we'll share with you some tips if you're required to choose headings in the IELTS Reading Module.

Cheers. :)
