How to best way to prepared IELTS

Tushar Sagar 26th Nov, 2019

Hello Amit

IELTS (Academic) - 7.5 Bands

X | XII | Graduate- 90.55% | 84.92% | A grade.

So with a short introduction of my acads, just wanted to convey that IELTS is no rocket science and an average student too can score good bands with a little practise and right amount of efforts.

Few tips:

Aim for 8–8.5 to reach 7–7.5 or higher.

Try answering each question as IELTS carry no negative marking.


  1. Train yourself by listening to more Hollywood/ British albums, movies, videos, audios as much as you can to get used to the foreign accent.
  2. Try to stay patient and focused till the last section so that you don’t miss out on any MCQs or blanks, let go if you miss out on one answer. Panicking for that might lead to other answers going wrong.


  1. You need to be fast with a good understanding of the passage to score well and complete all the passages on time.
  2. Advisable to start with passage 3 (difficult) first and then move on to the passage 1 & 2 which are comparatively easier.
  3. Practise a lot of passages before the exam date to keep up with the above tips.


  1. Remember to stick to the question and answering only on the topic given and don’t go sideline. Use simple decent English rather than using fancy words and complicating the writing task.
  2. In writing task 1, mention all the observations that you’ve made with correct figures and changes in the diagram or graph.
  3. Before starting writing task 2, make a summary of the points which will give a flow to your essay and will give a better idea of presenting your opinions when you start writing the essay.
  4. Introduction, main body paragraphs and conclusion - make notes when you practise of the common phrases that might make your writing task presentable.


  1. Be loud, slow and avoid slangs. Can be casual but should have a decent tone. Support your answers with a strong opinion to convince the examiner of what you’re speaking.
  2. Practise speaking by asking your friends, neighbours or even your family members to help you by asking the questions from the speaking sections of the book that you are referring to.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 25th Nov, 2019

TOEFL and IELTS are Language proficiency tests that Students and Professionals have to take while visiting native English countries either for Academic or Professional purposes. This test is usually for non native English speakers. There is no eligibility criteria per se. These tests can be taken by anyone who is in high school level or higher. These exams do not even have any age limit. Now GRE is slightly different. Though there is no age limit, GRE is usually taken for admission to Master's programmes.

hi Im doing graduation in Delhi University. and learning German language. i want to do masters in Germany. please guide about ielts exam?

Shivam bhardwaj Student Expert 12th Nov, 2019
Hello Bhanu,
Hope you are doing well.
IELTSis an English language exam that is required to be taken by international candidates considering studying or working in a country where English is the main language of communication. Most popular countries where IELTS is accepted for university admissions are the UK,Australia,New Zealand,USA, andCanada. The exam mainly measures the ability of test-takers to communicate in the four basic English language skills listening, reading, speaking, and writing. IELTS exam is jointly owned and conducted by IDP Education Australia, British Council, and Cambridge English Language Assessment.
IELTS 2019 exam is required for migration as well as academic purpose abroad in English speaking countries like Australia, UK, New Zealand, USA, and Canada. It is the only English Language Test approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) for visa applicants applying both outside and inside the UK. A lot of students get confused about why are the IELTS scores required. The simple answer to this is that foreign universities and visa granting authorities need to be sure that you will not have communication issues while staying in the country. You need to show agood understanding and strong command of the English language and that is why your overall IELTS scores are so important. Another common doubt students have is whether IELTS is acompulsory exam or not. No, IELTS isnt compulsory in all university admissions. Many universities might not even require IELTS scores for admission purposes. But remember that if you dont give IELTS, your chances of getting the student visa might suffer as the visa officers may not be convinced about your English proficiency without IELTS scores. So it is safer to appear for IELTS and aim to score at least 6 bands overall.

You can take the IELTS exam with the British Council or IDP up to once a week (four times a month). The British Council and IDP global schedule for test datesare 48 days per year.

IELTS Eligibility:
IELTS can be taken by anyone irrespective of age, gender, race, nationality or religion, however, the IELTS test is not recommended for those under 16 years of age.
Hope this will help you.
Good luck
