Today we’ll expose an IELTS forum for its bad answers and bad strategies.

We’ll show what to do instead of relying on a forum to get your 7 or higher.

Today we went to the forum called AIPPG.NET and we found a thread that we think is offering very bad advice.

We recommend that you stay away from this forum.

We only see students answering other students’ questions and giving bad advice. Some forums do allow ex-examiners to answer questions and adminstrators monitor the threads for bad answers so we aren’t talking about all forums today but this one is particularly bad.

The question that we found is about time management.

The first piece of bad advice we found was one student saying that it doesn’t matter if you do not finish the reading or listening test. This is completely wrong. If you follow advice like this you will not succeed on the IELTS. You definitely need to finish both the listening and the reading tests.

The next piece of bad advice offered a very weak strategy or framework that sounds like it hasn’t been validated against the exam.

Remember guys, why would you waste your time and risk not achieving your dream by taking bad advice and trying to save a few dollars?

Leave us a comment and let us know if you use forums. Which ones do you use and which ones have you found that are bad? Let us know!
