What is a Reading Comprehension Skill Test?
The Reading Comprehension Skill Test is designed to test an individual’s ability to extract key information from a sample of text.

Candidates are shown a variety of question styles including true or false statements and multiple choice questions.

At all levels, candidates are required to read the text and answer questions. At Core and Professional levels, the text length and complexity of the language used is increased.

Candidates are presented with 6 questions to complete within 15 minutes. Responses are automatically marked. A point is awarded for each correctly answered question. For some questions, multiple answers may be required, the sum of these answers will result in one point awarded for the question. Skipped questions or those that are not taken will result in no point being awarded.
