Today you’ll find out exactly what happens on IELTS exam day.

The Listening test is first.

You listen for 30 minutes and then you have 10 minutes to transfer your answers.

Next you start the Reading test.

The Reading test has 3 passages, 40 questions, and you have to do it in 60 minutes.

There is no extra time for transferring your answers.

Next comes the Writing test. At this point you might be tired but you need to keep going. It’s important to eat a good breakfast before the test.

The Writing test is 60 minutes, 20 minutes for Task 1, 40 minutes for Task 2.

When you prepare, be sure to practice the timing for the Writing test.

After Writing, find out when your Speaking test is. It’s usually that afternoon.

Sometimes it’s at another time during the week.

During the time between the Writing and the Speaking tests, you may have a huge amount of time.

Have a plan for how you are going to fill those hours if you need to.

You can listen to a podcast in English during that time but also get some fresh air, go outside and take a walk. Give your brain some down time.

It can be stressful when you get started preparing for the IELTS exam.

Maybe you don’t know where to start.

Today we’ll show you what you are probably missing when you get started with your IELTS prep.

Most students make this mistake. They do one of these things:

1- Only focus on test strategy and practice

or

2- Only focus on general English skill building

 

Doing only test prep or only general English and not both is a huge mistake.

This is a test of your English skills and not just your ability to take the test.

You need to get exposure in all different ways including speaking, reading, writing, listening.

Also, you need to study the test and understand how to use strategies to get a high score.

The way to make sure that you balance your practice is to have a daily study plan that helps you do both.

 

What’s the problem with a lot of IELTS schools?

At many IELTS schools you have young teachers who have online resources and fun activities but the teacher often does not know the test.

On the other hand, you could get a teacher who knows the test and who has been teaching IELTS for many years and will only do test practice with you but is very inflexible and boring.

These are the two types of teachers that you will find at many IELTS schools.

Unfortunately both of these types of teachers won’t help you get the score you need.

It’s possible to spend a lot of money and not get the skills that you need when you finish the course at an IELTS school. Don’t let this happen to you!

If you really want to attend a traditional IELTS class, make sure you have the option to get your money back after your first class or if you are studying online, try to get some sample lessons before you have to buy the whole course.

Did you know that your cultural IQ can affect your Speaking score on the IELTS exam?

It’s true!

Today you’ll find out how.

There are questions that can be traps on the IELTS exam.

Examiners are human and when they hear your response to a question like “what’s the difference between activities that men and women do?” they will have a negative gut reaction to your answer if you respond in a way that shows a lack of cultural sensitivity.
