How To Improve Your IELTS Score

Look After Questions

An IELTS exam is often filled with different types of questions. Sometimes, they can be confusing or in some cases not fully understandable for the students. To prevent this, you should look after all of the questions and prepare the right answer to them.
Approximately, you can bump into 14 categories of questions and each one of them must be well-researched. Some of them demand simple answers like true or false but it would be good if you learn them and, of course, not forget them.

Increase Speed Of Your Reading And Writing

Reading and writing are 2 of 4 skills that will be put to the test on the IELTS exam. One piece of advice we can give you about them is to try to maximize your speed of doing these actions.
Why are we making such a suggestion? Well, the truth is that there is a high probability that time for doing this test will be limited. Rules of getting proficiency level of English language are strict but that is how it must be when you are trying to reach such a degree.
The most important thing is not to exaggerate though. Don’t let your reading or writing of an English language become too fast because it won’t be understandable, even for the native speakers. Try to find the balance and a perfect speed that will allow you to complete the test on time. Especially if it is about writing, it can have negative consequences if you write too quickly.
Reading and writing tests are usually 60 minutes long. This exam has 2 versions, academic and general. It is a normal procedure that both of these types can request 2 different tests for both of them. Reading test 1 is often about reading the text of 2150 to 2750 words. It consists of multiple questions, short and long ones, diagrams, identification of some information, etc.
The second part is usually related to reading 3 texts that come from the newspapers, books, or magazines. The writing exam is also divided into 2 parts. In the first one, candidates must write in 20 minutes the amount of 150 words, minimally. The second one will require the writing of at least 250 words in 40 minutes. So, try to practice those amounts of words in this stated time.

Work On Your Vocabulary And Grammar

Vocabulary is an important part of the language. No matter which one you want to perfect or simply learn, it is something that you must be working on constantly. If we say that this is one of the biggest reasons why students can’t get sufficient scores on the test, will your approach be different? Well, it should be. Of course, it implies that you learn the meanings of the words and phrases but also the correct use of them. It is significant if you know when you can use some expression and when it is not recommended.
Another thing that can be beneficial to learn well is grammar. It represents the correct structure of your sentences and the use of correct tenses in the right moment. It is especially requested for writing tests. So, make sure that you write everything grammatically correct.
