IELTS Cambridge 6 Test B: GT Reading Module

Section 1: Question 1-14

The headline of the text: THE EMPLOYMENT PAGES Saturday Edition   

Questions 1-2: Short answer to open questions (NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS)

[In this kind of questions candidates have to answer some questions, only with some conditions like NO MORE THAN THREE/TWO WORDS and/or A NUMBER or, ONE WORD ONLY. Each question has keywords that will lead to the answer. This question type generally follows a sequence.]

Question 1: On which TWO days does the newspaper advertise jobs for teachers? 

Keywords for this question: TWO days, advertise, jobs for teachers,      

First, take a look at Category B and C in the ‘Saturday Job Guide’ section. They say,

“B. Higher Education (Academic Staff)

  1. Primary and Secondary Schools (Academic Staff)”

Then, in the ‘Monday-Friday Job Highlights’ section, it says,

“Tuesday:       Education

                        Local Government

Here, the words ‘education’, ‘Higher Education’, ‘Academic Staff’, ‘Primary and Secondary Schools’, all indicate to jobs for teachers.

So, the answers are: Saturday (and) Tuesday (in either order)

Question 2: On which TWO days does the newspaper advertise jobs for nurses?

Keywords for this question: TWO days, advertise, jobs for nurses,

Again, take a look at Category D in the ‘Saturday Job Guide’ section. It says,

“D. Hospitals and Medical (Medical staff)”

Then, in the ‘Monday-Friday Job Highlights’ section, it says,

Thursday:     Hospital and Medical

                        Government Health Vacancies (New South Wales)”           

Here, the words ‘Hospitals’, ‘Medical’, ‘Medical Staff’, ‘Government Health Vacanices’, all indicate to jobs for nurses.

So, the answer is: Saturday (and) Thursday (in either order)         

Questions 3-8: Identifying information

[This question asks you to find information from the text and write the number of the paragraph/ categories (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 3: you are looking for a job as a university lecturer?

Keywords for this question: university lecturer,  

Have a look at Category B in the ‘Saturday Job Guide’ section. It says,

“B. Higher Education (Academic Staff)”

Here, Higher Education (Academic Staff) = university lecturer,

So, the answer is: B               

Question 4: you want to start your own business?

Keywords for this question: start, own business,    

Have a look at Category H in the ‘Saturday Job Guide’ section. It says,

“H. Self-employment Opportunities”

Here, self-employment = own business,

So, the answer is: H               

Question 5: you want a permanent job in a hotel?

Keywords for this question: permanent job, hotel,    

Have a look at Category G in the ‘Saturday Job Guide’ section. It says,

“G. Hospitality and Kitchen Staff”

Here, Hospitality and Kitchen Staff = permanent job in a hotel,

So, the answer is: G

Question 6: you are looking for a job in public administration? 

Keywords for this question: public administration,   

Take a close look at Category A in the ‘Saturday Job Guide’ section. It says,

“A. Government Positions (New South Wales)”

Here, Government Positions = public administration,

So, the answer is: A

Question 7: you are looking for agricultural work in the country?   

Keywords for this question: agricultural work, country,   

Take a close look at Category I in the ‘Saturday Job Guide’ section. It says,

“I. Rural Posts (incl. farm work)”

Here, farm work = agricultural work,

So, the answer is: I

Question 8: you are looking for temporary work?

Keywords for this question: temporary work,   

Take a look at Category J in the ‘Saturday Job Guide’ section. It says,

“J. Casual work available”

Here, casual work = temporary work,

So, the answer is: J

The headline of the text: STANFIELD THEATRE 

Questions 9-14: 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 9: It is possible to book tickets for performances using the Internet.

Keywords for this question: possible, book tickets, using the Internet,    

In the ‘BOOKING’ section, there are 4 ways to book seats for performances. Take a look at the fourth way:

on-line

Complete the on-line booking form at www.stanfieldtheatre.com.”

Here, online = the internet,

So, it is possible to book tickets for the performances using the internet.

So, the answer is: TRUE

Question 10: 60-year-olds who want to book in advance have to prove their age to get a discount.

Keywords for this question: 60-year-olds, want to book in advance, have to prove, age, discount,

We can find the mention of ‘over 60s’ in the ‘DISCOUNTS’ section in the ‘Saver’ category in line no. 3, “ .. .. Savers are available for children up to 16 years old, over 60s and full-time students.”

However, there is no information regarding ‘proving their age’. 

So, the answer is: NOT GIVEN

Question 11: Someone accompanying a wheelchair user to a performance receives a discount.

Keywords for this question: accompanying, wheelchair user, receives, discount,    

The information can be matched in the ‘DISCOUNTS’ section in the ‘Supersaver’ category. The first line says, “half-price seats are available for people with disabilities and one companion. It is advisable to book in advance. There is a maximum of eight wheelchair spaces available .. . .. . .”

Here, people with disabilities and one companion = someone accompanying a wheelchair user, half-price seats = discount,

So, the answer is: TRUE

Question 12: Students can get Standby tickets 45 minutes before a performance begins.

Keywords for this question: get, Standby tickets, 45 minutes before, performance begins,     

The information can be matched in the ‘DISCOUNTS’ section in the ‘Standby’ category. We come to know from the ‘Saver’ category that students are eligible.

Then, here in the ‘Standby’ category, the information says, “best available seats are on sale for £6 from one hour before the performance for people eligible for Saver and Supersaver discounts . .. . .”

Here, one hour before = 45 minutes before the performance,

So the answer is: TRUE

Question 13: A group of ten adults going to a performance can claim a discount.   

Keywords for this question: group of ten adults, claim, discount,  

Take a look at the ‘Group Bookings’ category in the ‘DISCOUNTS’. It says, “ there is a ten per cent discount for parties of twelve or more.”

Here, twelve or more = more than ten adults,

So the answer is: FALSE

Question 14: Theatre-goers who are unexpectedly unable to attend a performance can get their money back.

Keywords for this question: theatre-goers, unexpectedly unable to attend, get, money back,   

Right above the ‘GIFT VOUCHERS’ section, there’s a small note that says,

“Please note: we are unable to exchange tickets or refund money unless a performance is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.”

Here, we are unable to exchange tickets or refund money = theatre-goers can’t get their money back if they are unable to attend,

So the answer is: FALSE
