雅思阅读考试中有很多的难点，一词多义也是雅思阅读对词汇的一个考点。比如在剑5 Johnson’s Dictionary一文的题目中就出现过shade一词，除了表示荫凉处之外，它还有表示微小、细微的意思，原文正是取了shade的第二种也是考生不太知道的意思，在文章中和subtlety进行了替换。

What aspects of reading are tested in IELTS Academic Reading?
Candidates are tested on their ability to identify main ideas, supporting ideas, writer's opinions and specific information.
How long should candidates spend on each passage?
Candidates have 60 minutes to read through three passages and answer 40 questions. Candidates are advised to spend about 20 minutes on each passage. Candidates should make sure that they do not waste time worrying about items they can't answer and that they use their time sensibly to read through what they can and answer as many questions as possible.
How do candidates record their answers?
All answers must be entered on an Answer Sheet during the 60-minutes allowed. Candidates may first write their answers on the Question Paper if they wish to, but no extra time is allowed to transfer answers to the Answer Sheet.
How many different task types are there in IELTS Academic Reading?
There are 10 basic task types, some with possible variations. A variety of task types are used in Academic Reading and more than one task type may be used for each passage. Some questions may appear before a passage and some may come after, depending on the nature of the questions.
When the instructions state that the candidate should answer in, for example, NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS, would they lose marks by writing an answer with more than three words, even if one is 'a' or 'the'?
Yes. Answers which exceed the word limit will be marked incorrect.
Are candidates penalised for spelling and grammar mistakes made in their answers?
All words that candidates will need in order to answer the questions will be given in the passage, so they should be encouraged to transfer their answers to the Answer Sheet with care. Candidates should be aware that poor spelling and grammar are penalised.
How is the band score for Academic Reading calculated?
One mark is awarded for each of the 40 questions in the test. A band score conversion table is produced for each version of Academic Reading, which translates scores out of 40 onto the IELTS 9-band scale. Scores are reported as a whole band or a half ba12
在雅思阅读中，就PASSAGE 1 做具体讲解, QUESTIONS 1-5 是个段落细节定位题,这种题型要求我们基本上每一段都要看而且段落从头到尾都得看,非常耗时,而且准确率不算高,通常情况下我们把这五道题留到最后去做,做完之后的题目对这道题是有帮助的.
QUESTIONS6-9 是个SUMMARY, 我们看题目要求,并没有段落限制,很有可能答案就会很分散,但也不排除答案集中的情况,QUESTIONS 10-13 是个句子填空题,那么SUMMARY 题和句子填空题是相通的,它们都是填空题,在很多情况下,都是通过定位词找细节,所以我们可把这两道题结合着做,画好QUESTIONS 6-13的定位词,去原文从第一段看起来,找细节.
