Do you listen to IELTS rumors?

Do you let IELTS rumors get you scared and push you off of your center?

Today we’ll show you why you need to stop listening to rumors and what you should do instead.

We’ll tell you who to listen to for the best possible score and who you should ignore.

There are people out there who spread rumors and the rumors they spread are due to their own insecurities.

Common rumors that go between students include:

  • “IELTS Center A is easier” or “IELTS Center B is the best place to take IELTS”
  • Certain topics that were used on the exams in previous weeks

What should you do?

  • Evaluate the source: Who is giving you the information? Do not pay attention to anyone that is not an IELTS professional.
  • Evaluate the nature of the comments: Are they giving you basic logistics or is the comment more emotion based? People make comments and start rumors when they are nervous and anxious.
  • Choose a system that works and follow it: Don’t take pieces of separate systems. Don’t go back and forth between courses or systems. Choose the one that works for you. It should have a good daily IELTS study plan. The study plan will keep you busy so that you won’t have time to think about the rumors that you have heard. If you are just grabbing free materials on the internet then you might have a problem focusing because there is no step-by-step plan.
  • Focus on what you need to know: You must learn what the examiner wants and how to give that to them. Those are facts and discrete practice points. The examiner wants to hear linking words. Practice using them. Don’t just say “I need to be more fluent.” Be specific and not general.

Keep your head down and keep working.

Don’t let yourself get pushed around by rumors and other people’s emotions and fear.

Follow your own path.

Have confidence in it.

Don’t let people distract you from that path.
