Information About How To Earn The Best IELTS Score Possible
So, the most obvious thing to do is to practice a lot and make sure that your reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills are sufficient to get the IELTS Band Score you want.
First and foremost, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with the test’s requirements by visiting the official IELTS website (www.ielts.org), but in the meantime, I’ll help you out by offering some background information.
Half the struggle, in my opinion, is knowing how to take the IELTS Training Centre in Dubai. Consider how much easier it was to take a test the second time around because you knew what to expect! Because I failed my driver’s test FOUR times, I should know!
What Is The Purpose Of The IELTS Test?
The first step is to be sure IELTS is the right exam for you.
The International English Language Testing Method (IELTS) is a language evaluation system for persons who desire or need to study in an English-speaking setting. Unless you have a specified IELTS Band Score, many jobs, institutions, and immigration agencies will not accept your application.
When determining when to take the test, keep in mind that your IELTS Band Score is only valid for two years.
The next step is to figure out which IELTS test version best suits your needs. The Academic and General Training versions of the IELTS test are the two that are available. You should take the IELTS Academic version if you wish to study at an undergraduate or postgraduate level; the IELTS General Training version if you want to emigrate or work in another country.
In both versions, the four sub-tests or modules are reading, writing, hearing, and speaking. The Listening and Speaking sub-tests are the identical in both the Academic and General Training versions of the IELTS, however the Reading and Writing sub-tests are different. A skilled examiner who has received considerable training will analyses your writing and speaking skills and offer you a Band Score in those sub-tests.
How Can I Sign Up For The IELTS Test?
I recommend that you get a copy of ‘The IELTS Handbook’ and ‘IELTS Information for Candidates’ from the IELTS website. Both of these books address how to apply for the test, but I’ll give you a quick overview and some of my personal thoughts here.
1. You submit an application to take the test in an IELTS Test Center near you.
You can find the address, contact information, and upcoming exam dates for your nearest test center on the official IELTS website.
2. Go to the IELTS Test Centre and get an application form. You can get an application form from the IELTS website if getting there is a difficulty for you. You can also request one from the Test Centre be ship to you.
3. Choose a time to take the test and fill out the application form. Depending on your needs, make sure you select the proper module: Academic or General Training.
4. If at all feasible, have your application form reviewed by a native English speaker.
5. Take your completed application to the Test Center of your choosing, along with two passport-sized photos and the test fee.
6. Bring the same identification you used on your application form to the exam. If the two pieces of identification aren’t the same, you won’t be able to take the test. If you are unable to do so for whatever reason, please contact the Test Centre as soon as possible.
7. The Test Center will send you a confirmation letter with the test day and time, as well as some day-of instructions, once your application has been approve.
What Should A Student Do On The Exam Day?
First and foremost, get a good night’s sleep and a good meal the night before (yes, I’m a mother!). Keep in mind that if your speaking test falls on the same day as your writing test, you will need to have lunch.
Keep in mind that your identification will be examin when you arrive.
You are not permit to bring any personal things, including your cell phone, inside the examination room. You’ll be able to store them outside the room in a designated area.
Once the invigilator (test supervisor) has announce that the exam has begun, no conversation is permitted. You may ask your question if you have in mind.
The hearing test is done first, then the reading and writing tests (I will give you further details about the different sub-tests in my next posts). Your Test Center will inform you of the time (and date) of your speaking test.
