Learning to Manage Time Effectively is a Key Skill in IELTS Reading

Did you know that the biggest challenge with IELTS Exam Reading section is managing your time effectively? You have 60 minutes to answer 40 questions in IELTS Reading and there is no extra time to transfer your question answers to the answer sheet.

Here are some IELTS strategy tips to help you to manage your time effectively:

  • Go straight to the Matching Headings Question and do this question first. This gives you an opportunity to get the general meaning of the text which will help you to answer the other questions that examine the text in greater detail. Cut down on time by reading the headings first. Do not read the whole text.

  • Do the Matching Information to Paragraphs question last. It is much easier to find the correct information and the right answer if you are more familiar with the passage from doing the other questions first.

  • Do not waste time reading the text word for word

  • GO STRAIGHT TO THE QUESTIONS. READ THESE FIRST, then read the passage.

  • The first passage is the easiest so try to spend the least amount of time on this passage.

  • Don´t waste time pondering difficult questions. Do the questions you find easiest first.

  • Most of the question answers follow the order of the text.

  • Use skimming and scanning skills to find the right word or phrase.

  • Don´t forget that PARAPHRASING is a key IELTS skill that will save you time in the Reading part of the exam. Paraphrasing questions helps locate the answers.

Hello, my name is Sonja and I am originally from South Africa but I live in Portugal now. I speak fluent Portuguese. I specialize in helping you take your English skills to the next level with dynamic, personalised English coaching with proven results. I am a Certified IELTS exam Coach for IELTS Reading, Speaking, Listening + IELTS Writing coaching. I have 16 + years of formal ESL classroom experience and I have taught around 1000 online English Proficiency lessons to students from around the world over the past 18 months. I hold a 300 Hour TEFL Diploma and I am a native English speaker with slight, South African accent. I left my corporate job in investment banking to become a teacher and I am so glad I did. I find teaching to be a truly rewarding occupation and it really does not feel like a job to me at all. I have taught focused Business English classes based on student needs analysis to students working for multinationals in those countries in areas such as banking, supply chain management, the oil industry and IT. Typical lessons have covered areas of Business English such as meeting agendas, how to deliver presentations effectively, correct vocabulary and terminology to use when describing charts and graphs, banking, business cycles, business email writing, making small talk, soft skills, customer service and problem solving, responding to serious customer service complaints etc. I also taught a couple of advertising executives in Sao Paul who needed help with industry specific vocabulary and articles. I have taught adults and children of all levels and have helped prepare many students for IELTS. I love how teaching inspires one to keep learning and improve!
