If you need to get IELTS Band 7 or higher, the articles in this series are for you. They include essential tips for each part of the IELTS test. The aim is both to help you prepare for the IELTS exam and to help you do your best on the day of the test.
PLEASE REMEMBER, however, that IELTS tips will only help if you also:
- Spend a lot of time listening, speaking, reading and writing in English
- Build a wide vocabulary
- Develop your test skills and strategies
- Understand exactly what you have to do in each part of the IELTS test
