5 Tips for Notes/Summary Completion in IELTS Reading

Hello. Here are some things for you to remember when it comes to notes or summary completion in the IELTS reading module.

1. Skim so that you'll get a general idea of the passage.

2. When you examine the notes or summary, scan the parts that contain missing information and try to determine what part of speech or kind of information the gaps or blanks need.

3. Scan or look for that part of the passage which is related or relevant to each gap or blank.

4. From the passage, identify the words you need.

5. When you answer, use the correct part of speech, write the needed words as you see them in the passage, and take note of the required number of words.

Next week, we'll share with you some tips questions that require you to identify information and the views of the writer in the IELTS Reading Module.

Cheers. :)
