The reading section, in a competitive exam for various college entrances, can prove to be extremely dreadful. Even though, it might sound ‘simple’ to a few, yet would be time-consuming, which may work against your planned time management for each section. Even the topics for the reading section can be dull and long. It is important to remember that, no matter how boring and long it may look, but the answers are all in that paragraph and right in front of you, making it easy to score.
Follow these steps to ensure maximum marks in the reading section:
- How to go about with it?
Casually read through the paragraph without seeing the questions to get an idea of the topic. Now read all the questions carefully and reread the paragraph with the utmost attention. Answer all the questions and go back to the para if you have any doubts.
- Learn how to fast read.
Practise! Practise! and Practise. Just because this looks easy, does not mean that you don’t get in the habit of reading. Learn to fast read, and this comes only with practice.
- Eliminate the wrong answers
Few answers might confuse you, it’s vital to first eliminate the wrong answers. Each word can make a difference, find that one flaw in that answer to cross it off.
- Read as much as you can
Be it mock exams/test, novels, magazine articles, newspaper etc. read it all. This will prove to be in favour of you. It is all about reading like a maniac. This will not only help you read faster during the exam but also improve your vocabulary and make you more aware.
- Don’t stress over it
We might not realise, but stressing over how long the paragraph is, how boring the topic is or even how difficult these questions are; might consume most of the time. Not only this, even the attention gets divided. It is important to take a deep breath, belief in yourself and carefully read and answer all the questions.
