Most of the test takers want to know how they can get a band score 9 in their IELTS.
It is true that it is very difficult to get a band score of 9 in IELTS but it is possible.
You do not have to take the IELTS again and again. As most of the candidates do. They feel they will get lucky and get a good score if they keep trying again and again. That is not going to help in any way. This will be a sheer waste of money and time.
If you have taken IELTS and didn’t get your desired score then it is important that you should take some time to book the test a second time.
Ask yourself following questions:
· Why didn’t I get a good score?
· Is my English a reason?
· Do I have to improve my English?
· Why didn’t I do well in IELTS listening?
· Did I not write the essay properly?
· Do I have to improve my reading skills?
· Do I have to improve my speaking skills?
There can be many such questions. This self questioning or assessment will lead to better results. You will analyze what your weaknesses are. You can work on improving your skills.
You do not have to consume too much of information
There are so many websites where you can get free IELTS material. Many of the students consume a lot of data before taking the IELTS. They don't even focus on whether the free material is really up to the mark or not. Whether it is as per the current IELTS standards or not? Candidates use this free material for IELTS practice. During the practice, they find the answers very easily. This leads them to trouble ultimately. When they take the real IELTS, they feel how different real IELTS is from the practice tests they have taken.
So, what is the lesson? You do not have to rely on FREE material. You need only the right material even if it is paid.
It is always suggested that you should rely only on the standard IELTS material for the IELTS practice.
Work on weak areas
Find out what you are weak at? Which skills shall you improve?
If you are not good at writing, then it is time to work on improving your writing skills.
Similarly, if you have problems speaking confidently, you need to build confidence to be able to get a good score in your IELTS speaking.
Most of the candidates manage to get a good score in IELTS reading but they do not get a good score in the listening test. Therefore, it is important to analyze weak areas and prepare the test accordingly.
Practice first and then book the slot for the IELTS
Book your IELTS slot only when you are confident that you can get through it with a good score. You will certainly improve your skills if you take practice tests.
