IELTS Reading: Matching headings tips, paraphrasing, and an exercise.
Updated: September 2023.
In the IELTS reading section, there are many types of tasks and you will get 3 different types of reading tasks to answer in this section of the exam.
One of the most challenging for many students is the ‘matching headings’ questions. For this task, you need to match headings to the paragraphs and there are always more headings than you need.
The ‘matching headings’ task tests your ability to understand the difference between the main idea and a supporting point. Matching heading questions can be quite challenging so practice this as much as possible using mock tests from the Cambridge IELTS books.
