Frequently Asked Questions

Is it tough to achieve a good IELTS score?

No. Although scoring high band scores in the IELTS exam is often deemed a hard nut to crack, it is not so difficult. All that it requires is thorough preparation. Spending more time and effort in the IELTS preparation will eventually lead to success in achieving a higher band score.

Who needs a study plan?

Cracking the IELTS exam requires a combination of hard effort, smart work, and appropriate coaching. As a result, a test taker who wants to improve their score or who needs to brush up on their skills in the IELTS modules can make a study plan and allocate time to each module appropriately

How to make an IELTS study plan?

In order to make an effective IELTS study plan, a test-taker has to set a goal, determine their strengths and weaknesses, and create a study plan fitting their requirements. A study plan should accommodate all of their individual requirements.

How can a test-taker achieve a high score?

A test-taker can dictate 1-2 hours to their IELTS preparation daily depending upon how much preparation they need. They can divide their time among each section and once they gain enough confidence, they can proceed to take practice tests to evaluate themselves. Depending on their scores on the tests, they can devote more time preparing for the sections they lack. They are bound to get a good score if they follow their IELTS study plan religiously and consistently.

Is one month enough for IELTS?

IELTS preparation doesn't have a definite time frame. The preparation time usually varies depending on the test-taker, whether it will take a month or two to become well-versed with the IELTS modules. If a test-taker is confident with their English-language skills, they wouldn't require much time to prepare

I think it depends on how good you’re in English. If your basics are clear then you can easily score good band in a month.

I am preparing for IELTS General module targeting 7.5+ score (at least 7 on each band). My previous score was 6.5 overall (test taken in 2011).

I have found most of the materials targeting for Academic module only. Is it OK to go through those materials for my General test?
It would be great, if you could provide me the test preparation materials specifically for general module.

Thank you.

Thank you indeed very much for your help and support.
I have taken IELTS exams twice recently and in both I got a band score 5.5
The first time:
L:5.0, R:5.5, W:5.5, S:5.0 Band score:5.5
The second time after a one-month preparing myself:
L:5.0, R:6, W:5, S:5.5 Band score:5.5

NOW, I have gotten an offer from a law school in Europe which this have been one of my dreams in my life and I must get a band score 6.5 and ALL skills must not be under 6.
Unfortunately, I have only two months for improving and preparing myself.
