Do you have tons of IELTS questions?

Today we’ll give you 5 answers to your 5 super common IELTS questions!

We’ll give you all of the information you need to get to your target score.

Question #1) What should I do if I need a 7 but I can only get a 5? 

Answer: You need to invest in a course. It’s simple. When you invest in a step-by-step system you will not waste your time. You will get the strategies that you need.

Start with the 7 Easy Steps to a 7 or Higher.

Question #2) What should I do if I don’t have time to proofread?

Answer: You must have a strategy for writing that allows time for proofreading.  It should be built into your routine when you do test practice and exercises. Two weeks before the exam you need to start practicing under test conditions and this would include proofreading your essays. Make sure you have a good IELTS professional to show you how to break down your time on the test.

Question #3) Which test is easier- the Academic or the General Exam?

Answer: Look at your goals. What are the requirements for the goals? For immigration you probably need the General Exam and for education you probably need the Academic Exam. The Academic Exam is harder than the General. The Reading test is harder. The Writing Task 1 question is different. Don’t waste your time thinking about which one is harder. Choose one. Commit to it. Learn a strategy system. Pass the test and move on.

Question #4) Do I need to answer all questions on the card in IELTS Speaking Part 2?

Answer: No! You don’t have to answer those questions. The bullet points on the card don’t need to be answered. They are there to provide ideas. It won’t factor into your grade if you ignore the questions on the note card. Did your teacher tell you something different? If so, this teacher does not know IELTS. We recommend you stop working with them.

Question #5) On the morning of the test I feel nervous. What can I do?

Answer: You need some relaxation strategies to help you. Plan for this ahead of time. In our course we created a Test Day Plan that tells you what to do to release the anxiety right before the Speaking test. You need to plan ahead of time so that you know what to do when you are in this situation.
