Don’t put in too many ideas!

Elias also shared that he had done 20 to 25 essays before submitting this essay to the context.

Remember to personalize your study plan to get as much practice as you need!

Although he was a night owl to practice enough IELTS, he was careful to not do too much, and get enough rest, in the week before his exam.

Elias actually had his exam already, and feels the Listening was really tough, but is confident overall!

He recommends to all students to read novels and newspapers, and recommends the books that the movie The Maze Runner was based on.

Finally, Elias tells you to keep your future goal in mind in order to stay motivated, or else it’s an uphill battle, and you will flounder.
