IELTS General Reading
About the IELTS General Reading test

The reading test is different for IELTS Academic and IELTS General candidates 

3 sections, 40 questions, 60 minutes

Section 1 contains two or three short factual texts, one of which may be composite (consisting of 6-8 short texts related by topic, e.g. hotel advertisements). Topics are relevant to everyday life in an English-speaking country. 


Section 2 contains two short factual texts focusing on work-related issues (e.g. applying for jobs, company policies, pay and conditions, workplace facilities, staff development and training)
Section 3 contains one longer, more complex text on a topic of general interest. 


Texts are authentic and are taken from notices, advertisements, company handbooks, official documents, books, magazines and newspapers.
