IELTS Exam Preparation

The most important thing that you can do preparing for the IELTS test is not getting stress out. A score in the 90th percentile is not required in most cases to get into the school or job of your choice. The IELTS entrance exam is only one part of your application.

Here are some steps for preparing for the IELTS test.

  1. Watch out for the words: except, always and not in all cases on IELTS questions.
  2. Get a good night's sleep before the IELTS test.
  3. Wear layered clothing to the exam.
  4. Practice with a watch and bring a watch to the IELTS test.
  5. Study for each section of the IELTS test individually.
  6. If you extremely weak in one area of IELTS content, focus on that section separately.
  7. Don't cram for your IELTS test. Read over a good practice study guide at least one week in advance.
  8. Stay away from negative talk about the IELTS test with other students.
  9. Use the study guide linked on the right side of this website as your primary review resource.
  10. Review each section of the IELTS content on this website thoroughly.
