How to get band 7 in IELTS reading?

It is quite difficult to get Band 7 on the IELTS reading section. The IELTS reading is considered the most difficult section in the whole exam. Most of the candidates fail to attempt all the questions in the IELTS reading part.

We have already mentioned some IELTS reading tips on this website so you can also check. In this article I am going to discuss the things which are the most important, yet often ignored during the preparation.

Build your vocabulary

The IELTS examiner expects you to know the meaning of words. These words might be difficult for you, but the examiner expects you to know the meaning of these words. For instance do you know the meaning of “escalating”?

We have provided a list of words which might be tested in the exam. If you do not know the meaning of these words then you will get most of your questions wrong. The answers to the questions are often in similar words.

Line in the passage

“Jack gave John an opportunity to correct his mistakes.”

Please choose the correct answer


Jack gave John a

  • Book
  • Suggestion
  • Chance

If you know the meaning of opportunity then you easily understand that the answer is chance.

Read a lot

Try to read two articles every day. After reading the articles write summaries for those articles. Then check whether you understood the main idea of the article or not. You will not be required to write a summary in the IELTS exam. I am just asking you to do this so that you can improve your reading score

    I think that 7 is simply asking too much, since that means you should not make more then 5 mistakes. I mean come on, the ielts is for non english mother tongue people, so why make it extremely hard. I think some external party should intervene and investigate this problem. I mean if english speaking peoplw cannot even get 7 then why the hell are they picking on non english speakers.
