    Hi,

    Follow these tips to get the most out of your exam. You could also attend one of our IELTS preparation courses to maximize your score. The IELTS website also has some useful Test Day Advice.

    LISTENING

    1. Read the instructions carefully, donít just glance at them. They are not always the same as in practice or previous tests.
    2. Often the speaker will give you an answer and then correct themselves-watch out for this. Itís a common trick.
    3. Try and anticipate what the speaker will say. This requires concentration - easy in your own language, but more difficult in English.
    4. Remember if you want a high score you should aim to get all questions in parts one and two correct. Donít make any careless mistakes in the easier sections.
    5. Although there are not that many IELTS books on the market, other Cambridge exam preparation materials can provide valuable practice such as FCE and CAE preparation books.
    6. Small errors can lead to low score, such as spelling, or incomplete times e.g. 1.30.
    7.Donít panic if you think the topic is too difficult or the speaker is too fast. Relax and tune in.
    8.Read, write and listen at the same time. Tricky but you can do it with practise!
    9.Donít leave blanks, you might as well guess as you wonít be penalised.

    READING

    1.Leave a question if you canít answer it. Spending a long time on one answer is disastrous. Go back later if you have time and guess if you have to.
    2. Donít panic if you donít know anything about the passage. All the answers are in the passage and you donít need any specialist knowledge.
    3. Remember you have no extra time to transfer your answers, many candidates think because they have extra time in listening they are able to do this in reading too. You canít.
    4. Before the exam read as widely as possible e.g. newspapers, magazines, journals. Donít limit yourself to one type of text and read articles with an academic style where possible.
    5. Look at how paragraphs are organized.
    6. Try and predict the content of each paragraph from the opening sentence.
    7. Give a paragraph you read an imaginary heading.
    8. Donít concentrate on words you donít know. It wastes valuable time.
    9. Try and spend a specific period each day reading.
    10. Careless mistakes cost marks. Copy the answer correctly if it is in the passage.
    11. Check your spelling
    12. Only give one answer if that is all thatís needed.
    13. Be careful with singular/plural

    WRITING

    1. Highlight/circle key words
    2.Clearly divide paragraphs.
    3.Donít repeat ideas in a different way.
    4.Stick to the topic.
    5.Careful with timing - donít rush Task Two, itís longer and carries more marks.
    6.Organize simply with one idea in each paragraph.
    7. Avoid informal language.
    8.Learn to recognize how long 150 words are in your handwriting. You donít really have time to count.
    9.Donít write too many words, particularly for Task One.
    10.Get used to always spending several minutes re-reading and correcting your essays.
    11.Donít memorize model answers, they wonít fit the question and you will make careless mistakes.


    SPEAKING

    1. This tests your ability to communicate effectively not just your grammatical accuracy.
    2. Donít learn chunks of answers. The examiner is trained to spot this and will change the question.
    3. Develop your answers as much as possible.
    4. Speak more than the examiner.
    5. Ask for clarification if necessary.
    6. Remember it is not a test of knowledge and there is no single correct answer, but ensure that you give your opinion. Donít worry if you feel it is not sophisticated enough.
    7. The areas covered are fairly predictable and not infinite so practice at home, recording ideas onto a tape recorder.

    Hi Mspujar,

    I am not sure if you are trying to study on your own for IELTS or seeking someone's help. Your scores were pretty good and only with a little guidance from an expert you will surely be able to get a 7 score. No you cannot bribe someone and get the score. So don't even try it. There are certain known tricks and tips that you need to be aware of and it is essential that you practice everyday. You also should be able to identify where you are going wrong and ensure you do not repeat your mistake. I do not know which part of India you are from, but in Bangalore there is an institute called First English which runs a program called Target 7, they assure you a 7 band score in IELTS. This is the only institute i have come across which offers such a program. Why not check them out?

    All the best friend. Hope you realise your dreams soon.

    (Y) Regards
