GT Reading Samples

IELTS General Training Reading:

In your GT IELTS Reading test, you will have three reading sections, each with 12-14 questions. You will be allowed 1 hour to read these passages and then answer the accompanying questions. You need to answer approximately 40 questions in total. Each question carries one mark. At the end of the test, you will be asked to hand in both the question paper and your answer sheet.

Section 1 of GT Reading Test: Section 1 of your GT reading test includes one, two or three texts (usually two). Each text could be an advertisement for a hotel, shop, college, sports centre, or an office. The texts are not long and are factual rather than descriptive.

Section 2 of GT Reading Test: Section 2 may also consist of more than one text and often relates to courses of a college, leaflet and content related to work and living in an English speaking country.

Section 3 of GT Reading Test: The final section (section 3) is usually a long reading passage and the hardest among the three reading passages.
