When I was applying for my master’s programme in the UK about 6 years ago, I also had to take an IELTS test. It was not much time left to prepare but I managed to score 7.5 at the first attempt. That’s enough to study at any university programme in the UK, even at the University of Oxford. Since then, I’ve worked with many students who took IELTS and accumulated a few tips and tricks which help to score higher. Today I’m going to share all these secrets with you and I hope they will help you too.

  1. Hi guys, can I ask you a question: What do you find the MOST difficult thing in IELTS? What materials/videos/info are you LOOKING FOR but can't find?

  2. something is not natural in your voice. It is the first time for me to listen to such a strange voice & accent

  3. IELTS requires basic English skills. Whether Academic or General, both require a good grasp of pronounciations, spellings, lexical range and yes, proper punctuation as well!

    1. FIRST AND FOREMOST THING IS PRACTICE. Practice as many tests as you can, there are plenty of IELTS books available, and you could buy a few for practising the reading and listening sections, primarily.

    2. For writing, you need to be able to adhere to the word limit and the topic. Task achievement is of primary importance, which means that you need to stick to the topic and justify it, rather than beat about the bush flaunting your grammar skills when you actually make no sense at all! They ask you to analyze graphs, pie charts, bar graphs in section 1, and various kinds of argumentative essays in section 2.

    3. For speaking, always prepare notes. They ask you basic questions about your likes, dislikes, hobbies, etc. Extremely basic questions, except for the justification round, which requires you to justify a few of your answers, basic general knowledge mostly. Practice in front of the mirror or listen to your own recordings- I myself was extremely apprehensive about speaking because I get very nervous, so try speaking in front of your parents and friends as well!

    4. Try reading the newspaper everyday, that's a good habit because you will come across new words. Look up the meanings and try using them in daily sentences!

    5. Proofread your answers, concentrate.

    6. Practice.

  18. Very good ideas ,Thank yoU, Where can i find the testes to practice on ?

  19. I am really surprised when you mentioned in your youtube clip about 7 days in preparation for IELTS regarding the spelling which you said use the English spelling not the American. This drove my mind that using British English spelling is the only way to get the marks, however, American English spelling is considered wrong. This is totally not true because either spelling is considered, but switching between the two spellings is not acceptable. Therefore, the candidate has to stick to one style of the spelling.
