IELTS Reading Section
In this part, you will have three or four reading passages with ascending difficulty followed by 40 questions to answer. You can write and take notes on the Question Paper. However, you should enter your answers exclusively on the Reading Answer Sheet. Bear in mind that you won’t be given any extra time to transfer your answers to the Reading Answer Sheet. So you need to budget your time.
The grading procedure of the Academic and General Training Reading Tests is the same. However, you need to answer more questions correctly on a General Training Test to receive the same grade corresponding to an Academic Reading Test because the texts in the latter are more challenging and difficult compared to the former.
