The answer to the question 17th should be 'NG' because it clearly says that each hour consists of 50 minute's tuition and a 10 minute's break. We cannot just assume that each lecture is an hour long.

If you can check the location and time of the courses, you will see, it says, before the entry to the school, students must take an entry test to determine the level of class they enter. That's why it is 'true'. You may have never read through this section as it is in last lines and not in order. Do not hesitate that as it will never happen in a real IELTS reading test.

The answer to the question 17 should be 'Not Given' because the break the leaflet says there will be a 10 minutes break, but it wasn't specified if the break will be at end of lecture or not. If the break is at the end of the lecture then 'True' is correct, but if this is not specified, the 'Not Given' is more accurate.

10 minutes break could be at the start of a lecture or at the end of the lecture as it is blatant that 50 minutes lecture will continue "non-stop". In either case, there comes a gap between two lessons. 'TRUE' I think, seems to be more convincing.

Tip: Don't assume situations from the texts, just derive the information from it. It says EACH hour which means there will be a break of 10 mins. So it's true.

How does the phrase "EACH HOUR" means "EACH LESSON"?

I think you are correct. It is 'not given'.

Agree... 50 minutes doesn't mean 1 complete lesson. The answer should be 'NOT GIVEN'.

Q-12 seems to be "true" based on the information provided in "Student Holidays" section?

I think you're asking about Question 19. The correct answer is of course "False". Referring to Student Holidays section, it implies that "ONLY students on long courses" can take a holiday. Now, back to the Q-19. The writer used the word ANY student permitted to a week's holiday.
