  • How to Score High Bands in IELTS What is IELTS? The International English Language Testing System (IELTS®) is a test of English Language Proficiency. The purpose of the test is to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work in places where English is the primary language of communication. IELTS® is jointly managed by the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL), the British Council and IDP Australia. IELTS: Academic or General Training IELTS is available in two formats – Academic and General Training. The Academic Reading and Writing Modules assess whether a candidate is ready to study or train in the medium of English at an undergraduate or postgraduate level. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses is based on the results of these Modules. The General Training Reading and Writing Modules are not designed to test the full range of formal language skills required for academic purposes, but emphasise basic survival skills in a broad social and educational context. General Training is suitable for candidates who are going to English speaking countries to complete their secondary education, to undertake work experience or training programmes not at degree level, or for immigration purposes to Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

  • How to Score High Bands in IELTS The IELTS Listening Test The IELTS listening test is around 30 minutes long. There are four sections of increasing difficulty and about 40 questions. The first two sections are on topics of general interest. Section one is a dialogue (2 speakers), section two a monologue (1 speaker). Sections three and four have an education or training focus. There will be a short lecture and a discussion involving 2, 3 or 4 people. You will hear the sections once only, but you have 10 minutes at the end of the test to transfer your answers from the question booklet to the answer sheet. Your main difficulty with this test is being unable to check your answers or fill in answers you didn't catch by listening a second time. Here are some tips to help you overcome this problem.

  • How to Score High Bands in IELTS 3. Marks are not deducted for a wrong answer, so always have a guess. With multiple choice questions, mark the most likely alternatives if you are not sure of the answer. For other types of question, you can make notes on the paper. Then if necessary, you can make a sensible guess at the end when you transfer your answers to a separate sheet. The IELTS Reading test Introduction You have one hour for the IELTS reading test. You need to read 3 texts of between 500 and 900 words each and answer around 40 questions, which vary in type and increase in difficulty. You write your answers on the answer sheet. The most common difficulty with the Reading test is time: it's easy to run out of it! Here are some tips to help your time management. Tips Preparation 1. Do several timed practice Reading tests before the real exam. These 'rehearsals' will give you a feel for how long you can take and will develop your skimming (reading for gist) and scanning (reading for specific information) skills. 2. In the weeks before the exam, read as much English text as possible, in 3. newspapers, comics, magazines, whatever you enjoy. 4. With newspaper or magazine articles, think of a heading which summarises the main point of each paragraph. This focuses your understanding of the content and practises one type of possible reading exercise.

  • How to Score High Bands in IELTS During the test 1. You have 20 minutes per text to read and answer the questions. If you haven't finished one section after 17-18 minutes, make an intelligent guess at the remaining answers and go on to the next section. Remember, the sections get more difficult, so if possible, save time on the early ones. 2. Read the questions carefully before you read the text so you know what information you are looking for. You could organise your 20 minutes per text like this: 1. use 3-4 minutes to read the questions. 2. Then use 10-12 minutes to read the passage and to answer where you can. 3. Use the last minutes to find the answers in the text that you did not find when you first read the passage. The answers are usually in order in the text. 3. Remember to read the instructions carefully. If you are asked to answer a question in three words or less, don't give an answer with more words!

  • How to Score High Bands in IELTS The IELTS Speaking test Introduction The Speaking test involves the candidate and one examiner and lasts around 13- 14 minutes. There are 3 parts to the test. In the first part, the examiner will ask you to talk about EITHER where you live OR your studies (or job if working). They will then move on to 2 other topics, chosen from a range including your interests, family life, popular activities such as sport, films or shopping; or other universals such as food, festivals or public transport. You cannot choose these topics, but the examiner will ask general questions and interact with you to encourage you to speak. The tone is one of an informal, if slightly one-sided, conversation. In the second part, the examiner will give you a card with a topic. After reading the topic, you will have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You may make notes on paper at this stage. The examiner will tell you when your preparation time is up, and you must talk on the subject for 1-2 minutes. They will not interrupt you unless you exceed the allotted time. This is your chance to demonstrate a range of vocabulary and sentence structures. You will continue to discuss matters related to the subject in part 3. The third part is a discussion of issues connected to the topic in part 2. The examiner will expand the topic in some way to guide you, and may ask you to describe, comment on, compare, speculate or theories about related themes. They will interact with you, and may lead the discussion into more abstract or 'difficult' areas towards the end, in order to really pinpoint your language ability . (If they do this, you have already done well!). The examiner is responsible for timekeeping and moving from one part of the test to another.
