Difficulties relates to text understanding in vestibular examination. This study is based on the concept of reading as a way of interaction among subjects/text/context. It aims at discussing some perspectives of textual reading as well as to present a view of some official documents and educational research institutions. In the analytical part, it aims at investigating one question from the Portuguese Test of 'Vestibular' from 2008 at Unicamp University, articulating the command of the question to the suggestion of answer elaborated by the examiners and six answers given by the candidates. In order to map the students difficulties of comprehension presented in the answers involving reading of an excerpt of Comic Strip genre, the research is based on the concept of knowledge systems of Textual Linguistics: linguistics knowledge, encyclopedic and interactional. Thus, the analysis demonstrates the relevance of reading based on functionality and in the actuation of the linguistics knowledge, encyclopedic and interactional assumed not only in the comic strip excerpt, but also in the textuality of the command of vestibular questions
