Tips To improve your IELTS Performance

LISTENING

  1. Read instructions carefully, don’t just glance at them. They are not always the same as in practise or previous tests.
  2. Often the speaker will give you an answer and then correct themselves-watch out for this. It’s a common trick.
  3. Try and anticipate what the speaker will say. This requires concentration-easy in your own language, but more difficult in English.
  4. Remember if you want a high score you should aim to get all questions in parts one and two correct. Don’t make any careless mistakes in the easier sections.
  5. Although there are not that many IELTS books on the market other Cambridge exam preparation materials can provide valuable practise such as FCE and CAE preparation books.
  6. Small errors can lead to low score such as spelling, omitting 's' or incomplete times.
  7. Don’t  panic if you think the topic is too difficult or the speaker is too fast. Relax and tune in.
  8. Read, write and listen at the same time. Tricky but practise!!
  9. Don’t leave blanks, you might as well guess you won’t be penalised.
