There are three texts and 40 questions.
The better thing to do than to slowly read is to use skills such as skimming which means you quickly read for the main idea or scanning, meaning you look for key words or you look for specific detail. A lot of students, what they do for the IELTS is they will actually read the questions first, and then they will read the passage. And that way, they… They know what they’re looking for. You don’t have to do this; it’s one technique. Some students find this a lot easier, other students like to read the passage first and then answer the questions. I recommend trying both out. First do the reading, then the questions, then try to read the questions first and read the passage and see what you like better, what you’re more comfortable doing
So the key thing here is: don’t read slowly. It’s a timed test, you have three parts you have to get through, 40 questions; it’s very important that you read quickly. You can start practicing reading quickly also. There are a number of resources out there where you can actually start practicing. And time yourself when you practice, make sure you’re not going over time.
My third tip: spend less time on earlier questions. For the reading module, the… Like I said, there are three passages. The first passage is the easiest, then the second passage, and then the third question. If you spend all your time on the first passage, you’re not going to have time to do the second and the third. And, like I said, the first one is easier. So a good idea is to spend less time on the first passage, maybe about 17 minutes, then the second passage maybe spend about 20 minutes, and the third passage maybe 23 minutes. You don’t have to follow this exactly, but the main idea is spend less time on part one, more time on part three because part three is harder.
My fourth point is: make sure you have enough time to transfer your answers. They will have an answer sheet and you’re supposed to write your answers on it. It’s very important to leave yourself time to transfer your answers from your test paper to the answer sheet. A lot of students, they work through the booklet and then they realize there’s no time to transfer their answers, so make sure you leave time for this

We believe these videos are fair use because:
We also do not wish to use the heart of any piece of work that would perhaps decrease the market value of the original content, if anything we hope to promote the content so that people can reach out and subsequently increase the market value.
Lastly these videos are to educate people in an entertaining fashion. Given these are very short videos, the short parts we use within them act as a catalyst to further reading
