上课每当老师说到雅思阅读最重要是把题做完，而不是把题做对时，很多同学都觉得好笑。很多人认为把每道题做对才是第一位的，其实不然。 下面是雅思考官写的文章，再次说明了时间的重要性。所以在练习中一定要注意把题做快，仅仅能把题做对在实战中是没用的，切记!!接下来为大家介绍"分折雅思阅读最重要的是把题做完 不是把题做对"
Time is your greatest enemy

To succeed on the IELTS, you must use your time wisely. Many students donot finish at least one module. The table below shows the time challenge you arefaced with:
As you can see, the time constraints are brutal. To succeed, you mustration your time properly. The reason that time is so critical is that everyquestion counts the same toward your final score. If you run out of time on anypassage, the questions that you do not answer will hurt your score far more thanearlier questions that you spent extra time on and feel certain are correct.
On the Reading Module, the test is separated into passages. The reason thattime is so critical is that 1) every question counts the same toward your finalscore, and 2) the passages are not in order of difficulty. If you have to rushduring the last passage, then you will miss out on answering easier questionscorrectly. It is natural to want to pause and figure out the hardest questions,but you must resist the temptation and move quickly.
Wear a watch to the IELTS Test. At the beginning of the test, check thetime (or start a chronometer on your watch to count the minutes), and check thetime after each passage or every few questions to make sure you are “onschedule.” Remember that on the Listening and Reading Modules you have a littleover half a minute for each question. If you can work quickly, you can paceyourself at half a minute per question, which makes it easy to keep track ofyour time. If you find that you are falling behind time during the test, youmust speed up. Even though a rushed answer is more likely to be incorrect, it isbetter to miss a couple of questions by being rushed, than to completely misslater questions by not having enough time. It is better to end with more timethan you need than to run out of time.
If you are forced to speed up, do it efficiently. Usually one or moreanswer choices can be eliminated without too much difficulty. Above all, don’tpanic. Don’t speed up and just begin guessing at random choices. By pacingyourself, and continually monitoring your progress against the clock or yourwatch, you will always know exactly how far ahead or behind you are with youravailable time. If you find that you are a few minutes behind on a module, don’tskip questions without spending any time on it, just to catch back up. Spendperhaps a little less than half a minute per question and after a few questions,you will have caught back up more gradually. Once you catch back up, you cancontinue working each problem at your normal pace. If you have time at the end,go back then and finish the questions that you left behind.
Furthermore, don’t dwell on the problems that you were rushed on. If aproblem was taking up too much time and you made a hurried guess, it must havebeen difficult. The difficult questions are the ones you are most likely to missanyway, so it isn’t a big loss. If you have time left over, as you review theskipped questions, start at the earliest skipped question, spend at most anotherhalf a minute, and then move on to the next skipped question.
Lastly, sometimes it is beneficial to slow down if you are constantlygetting ahead of time. You are always more likely to catch a careless mistake byworking more slowly than quickly, and among very high-scoring test takers (thosewho are likely to have lots of time left over), careless errors affect the scoremore than mastery of material.
For Reading passages, don’t waste time reading, enjoying, and completelyunderstanding the passage. Simply scan the passage to get a rough idea of whatit is about. You will return to the passage for each question, so there is noneed to memorize it. Only spend as much time scanning as is necessary to get avague impression of its overall subject content.
