Academic Reading Preparation

The Academic Reading Module consists of 3 sections or 3 reading passages with approximately 40 questions. The three reading passages are on topics of general interest and usually, these passages are taken from books, newspapers, journals, publications or magazines. At least one passage contains detailed logical argument. The reading passages are sometimes illustrated with diagrams, tables, pictures or graphs and each passage has accompanying questions. The passages vary in length (on an average, 650 to 1200 words).
