Smart tips for multiple choice questions in IELTS Reading - Teach5 In IELTS Reading, the most important factor to consider is the time. There are three passages to read in 60 minutes, and the candidates have to be in a hurry. In such cases, they can commit the mistakes easily. Here some hard work is necessary, before arriving at the examination hall. We present significant facts regarding multiple choice questions appearing in the Reading section.


The candidates have more than a multiple choice task in the section of IELTS Reading. Read all the instructions carefully for the first passage. Also, choose the correct answer for each question. Based on time go ahead, and complete the task. Moving on to the second passage, do not skip the instructions and select the right options for the question. It need not be similar to the first set of multiple choices. Certainly, in the second task, the candidates have to choose three/one option for a question, if the test had asked two replies in the first task. Going by the way of answering like the first task, will lead to nil marks.
