Prepare for IELTS to get the best score

Step 1: Get to know IELTS

Why do we recommend this to you?

IELTS is an English language test. Just like any other exam, preparation is key to success. We recommend that even native English speakers practise for IELTS before taking the test. For example, during your preparation you will learn that your Writing test is scored across four marking criteria that will test how well you write a response, organise your ideas, and use a range of vocabulary and grammar accurately. Even if your grammar is flawless, but you don’t answer the task you could miss out on marks. That’s why understanding the test is important.

Understanding the IELTS test format

Your first step is to get to know the test format so you’ll know what to expect on the day. In this step of your preparation you’ll get to:

  • Study the test format to make sure you don’t face any surprises during your test

  • Have a look at the content of each part of the IELTS test: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

  • Get to know the different types of questions that you may be asked in each part.
