DO NOT READ THE READING PASSAGE FIRST

Posted: June 25, 2011 in Reading

It is a mistake to begin reading a passage without first having a reason to read. There are 3 parts to the Reading Test, and many candidates begin each part in the same way – by reading the passage. They might read it in detail, or scan it quickly to find out what the topic of the passage is and to get a general idea of the contents. However, candidates who do this first have forgotten the need to predict information. They do not have a good enough reason to read the passage so soon.

Always have a reason to read a passage before you begin to do so. Have a question in your mind – something you are looking for – otherwise you will not be managing your time well.
