IELTS Cambridge 6 Test A: GT Reading Module

Section 1:

Question 1-9: CAUSTON HEALTH CENTRE: PATIENT INFORMATION LEAFLET

Questions 1-4: Identifying information

[This question asks you to find information from the passage and write the number of the paragraph (A, B, C or D … .. ) in the answer sheet. Now, if the question is given in the very first part of the question set, I’d request you not to answer them. It’s mainly because this question will not follow any sequence, and so it will surely kill your time. Rather, you should answer all the other questions first. And just like List of Headings, only read the first two lines or last two lines of the expected paragraph initially. If you find the answers, you need not read the middle part. If you don’t find answers yet, you can skim the middle part of the paragraph. Keywords will be a useful matter here.]

Question 1: what to do if you need help outside normal working hours   

Keywords for this question: need help, outside, normal, working hours,   

In the ‘Weekends and Nights’ section, the writer says in line no. 2, “Please remember this is in addition to our normal working day. Urgent calls only please.”

Here, in addition to = outside, normal working day = normal working hours,

So, the answer is: B

Question 2: who to speak to first for general information,

Keywords for this question: speak to first, general information,     

In the ‘Receptionists’ section, the writer says, “Our receptionists provide your primary point of contact-they are all very experienced and have a lot of basic information at their fingertips. They will be able to answer many of your initial queries and also act as a link with the rest of the team. .. .. .”

Here, primary point of contact = speak to first, initial queries = general information,

So, the answer is: F                

Question 3: what happens when you register with the Centre

Keywords for this question: what happens, register with, the Centre,      

In the ‘New Patients’ section, the author mentions, “Within 3 months of registering with the Centre, new patients on regular medication are invited to attend a health check with their doctor.”

Here, Within 3 months of registering with the Centre = when you register with the Centre,

So, the answer is: D  

Question 4: what to do if you need to cancel a doctor’s appointment 

Keywords for this question: need to cancel, doctor’s appointment,     

In the ‘Appointments’ section, in lines 3-4, the author says, “ . . . if you cannot keep an appointment, please phone in and let us know as soon as possible so that it can be used for someone else. .. .. ”

Here, cannot keep an appointment = need to cancel a doctor’s appointment,

So, the answer is: A               

Questions 5-9: TRUE, FALSE, NOT GIVEN

[In this type of question, candidates are asked to find out whether:

The statement in the question agrees with the information in the passage – TRUE
The statement in the question contradicts with the information in the passage – FALSE
If there is no information on this  – NOT GIVEN

For this type of question, you can divide each statement into three independent pieces and make your way through with the answer.]

Question 5: You must always see the same doctor if you visit the centre.

Keywords for this question: must always see, same doctor, if, visit, the centre,    

In the ‘Appointments’ section, the writer says in the beginning, “. . .. . We suggest that you try to see the same doctor whenever possible because it if helpful for both you and your doctor to know each other well. .. .. .”

Here, We suggest that you try to see the same doctor = it is a suggestion (it is not a must-do thing),

So, the answer is: FALSE

Question 6: If you want a repeat prescription, you must make an appointment.

Keywords for this question:  repeat prescription, must make an appointment,     

In the ‘Appointments’ section, the writer also says, “ . .. .. . We try hard to keep our appointments running to time, and ask you to be punctual to help us achieve this; if you cannot keep an appointment, please phone in and let us know as soon as possible so that it can be used for someone else. . .. …”

However, the writer doesn’t mention anything here about a repeat prescription.

So, the answer is: NOT GIVEN

Question 7: Helen Stranger is the Head Nurse..

Keywords for this question: Helen Stranger, Head Nurse,    

In the ‘Centre Nurses’ section, the author mentions, “Liz Stuart, Martina Scott and Helen Stranger are available daily by appointment to help you with dressings, ear syringing, children’s immunisations, removal of stitches and blood tests. They will also advise on foreign travel, and can administer various injections and blood pressure checks. For any over 75s unable to attend the clinic, Helen Stranger will make a home visit. All three Centre Nurses are available during normal working hours to carry out health checks on patients who have been on doctors’ lists for 3 years.”

Here, we see the name of Helen Stranger as the centre nurse. However, we find no information on whether she is the Head Nurse or not.

So, the answer is: NOT GIVEN

Question 8: It is possible that receptionists will ask you to explain your problem.  

Keywords for this question: possible, receptionists, will ask, explain, problem,    

In the ‘Receptionists’ section, the author states, “Our receptionists provide your primary point of contact-they are all very experienced and have a lot of basic information at their fingertips. They will be able to answer many of your initial queries and also act as a link with the rest of the team. They may request brief details of your symptoms or illness – this enables the doctors to assess the degree of urgency.”

Here, may request brief details of your symptoms or illness = will ask you to explain your problem,

So, the answer is: TRUE

Question 9: You should give the Health Centre your new contact details if you move house.  

Keywords for this question: should give, the Health Centre, new contact details, move house,     

In the ‘Change of Address’ section, the author writes, “Please remember to let us know if you decide to relocate. It is also useful for us to have a record of your telephone number.”

Here, remember to let us know& a record of your telephone number = give the Health Centre … new contact details, relocate = move house,

So, the answer is: TRUE            

Questions 10-14: BENTLEY HOSPITAL CATERING SERVICE

Questions 10-14:  Completing/Matching sentences with correct endings:

[For this type of question, candidates need to match the beginning and end of sentences. Candidates need to look for keywords in the sentence-beginnings and find the relative paragraphs and then sentences in the passage. Skimming and scanning, both reading skills are essential for this question-type.]

Question 10: Temporary employees only working 3 hours should

Keywords for this question: temporary employees, working 3 hours,

In the ‘Meal Breaks’ table, the writer provides detail of breaks that can be taken by temporary employees:

Keywords for this question: food handlers, ill,

In the ‘SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS – FOOD HANDLERS’ section, the writer says in lines 2-5, “Food handlers should report any instance of sickness, diarrhoea and/or stomach upset experienced either while at work or during a holiday to a member of the Personnel Management team.
