Some of the points to keep in mind when practicing for a reading test include going through all instructions before starting, organizing ideas before writing them on paper, answering easy questions first and writing neatly. Anyone that has had adequate practice can easily pass the reading test.
The first thing to do when taking the reading test should be to read all instructions before attempting any question. This will clarify any issues that may not have been clear and will prevent the student from making any mistakes that may cost marks.
Another point to keep in mind is that answering the easy questions first is a good way to manage time and increase chances of getting a high score. Trying to answer difficult questions first will limit the amount of time for answering the easy questions and this may end up being costly. Remember sentence construction questions are generally easier than passage questions.
Writing neatly is a good way to ensure everyone is able to go through the answers quickly. Avoid answering questions in a hurry since that may lead to multiple mistakes such as wrong spelling or poor grammar. Organizing thoughts or ideas before writing them down on paper is a good way to avoid having to erase what has already been written.
