Since IELTS is fully based in the English language, some of us tend to take it easy. We like to cram as much information as possible the night before the test date. That’s a big NO if you want a good band score. Tips for preparation has been broken down based on the 4 different IELTS tests:The most guaranteed tip is to PRACTICE. Speaking
The speaking test involves communicating face to face with an examiner. It tests your ability to present your confidence while speaking English. Keep in mind that, everything you say in the test will be recorded for remarking so you need to think carefully about your answer. Don’t be pressured! This is an informal session. The questions asked cover easy topics like ‘your opinion on a relevant matter, your favourite memories during childhood, your likes and dislikes or your future plans’.
Music lovers, this is your time to shine. The listening test is about how alert and focused you are when listening. There are plenty of listening test materials you can find on the internet. Practicing is definitely the way to prepare for IELTS but be careful not to zone out during the real test. You get to listen to the audio only ONCE so if you miss it, then it's over. If you listen well, this test can be easy to score a good band.
Listen to different conversations, monologues and situations that have two people talking to each other. The question pattern is usually designed this way.Reading
The reading test can be an unexpected punch since it’s comprehensive passage reading but longer and more difficult. It is a combination of both your reading and writing skills. You need to work fast but concentrate at the same time. It is also extremely important how you write down your answer. The most efficient preparation is practicing reading materials and effective time management.
The writing test is where students struggle to get a high score out of all the tests.We have all been writing essays since elementary school so what’s different in IELTS? Nothing much. IELTS is all about testing your english so look at essay structures that will appeal to the reader.
