What new question types will you see on IELTS?

A question on a recent exam had 5 different tables to compare.

Usually questions just have one table or chart, and two at the most.

Most students performed poorly on this problem.

You need to be prepared for any question you might get.

The 3 Keys IELTS Success System prepares you for every type of question.

What are students struggling with on the IELTS exam?

They don’t know what the Examiner needs to see in an essay.

Students need a study system like 3 Keys IELTS.

You need to understand the scoring sections for each separate exam.

This is vital in order to score a 7 or higher!

How can memorized phrases lower your score?

This Examiner is seeing a lot of memorized phrases used incorrectly.

For example, she sees phrases that are meant for a compare and contrast essay used for a problem/solution question.

It is key to memorize template sentences, but you must understand them and use them correctly.

No overall trend means a 6 or lower on Writing

She is seeing a lot of essays without an overall trend.

This is a must in order to get a 7 or higher.

Your overall trend must be accurate and clear.

We teach you exactly how to do this in 3 Keys IELTS.

What is something students are missing on their Speaking exam?

It is necessary to use informal vocabulary and fillers on Part 1.

You must use different, more formal vocabulary and fillers in Part 2 and Part 3.

We have so many episodes with high level vocabulary.

Informal and formal fillers can also be found in many of our podcasts and blogs.
