Free Academic IELTS reading tests

5 free Academic IELTS reading testsThe 5 free Academic IELTS reading tests on this page have been designed to match the official IELTS test, with the same question types, reading texts and level of difficulty. Once you have finished the test, your answers will be automatically marked and you will be given a band score.

Remember that the key to improving your score in IELTS is spending time reviewing your answers once you have finished the test, looking for areas you need to improve on. In this free IELTS preparation course, there are lessons and exercises on all 9 of the question types used in the IELTS test, as well as some techniques on how to improve your reading for IELTS, so if you are not reaching the score you need then spend some time working through those pages.
