What to do to get good marks in the IELTS exam



IELTS is a test of English language proficiency. Speaking, Listening, Writing, and Reading — these four parts combine to get a score of 7.5 out of 9, and most students are satisfied. Kazi Mustabin Noor got there 9-9! Learn from him how to get good marks in IELTS.


The main condition for learning any language is immersion. Just as we are immersed in the state of Bengal in our daily life, we must be immersed in the practice of English as much as possible.

These include sitting at a table and chair, talking in English with a few friends every day, watching some English series and movies, reading an English magazine a day, and reading lots of books according to your skills. However, IELTS is a test. Here are some of the ones I found to be helpful:


Listening

1. What information is being given in the sentences should be heard in the listening section. Don't be afraid to listen to different types of pronunciation, see if you understand what he is saying. Understanding is half the battle.

2. Keywords must be omitted. The recordings that are played during the test give you some time to look at each part of the question. Using that time, what is being asked in the question, he will mark the word with a pencil. Then when the conversation starts on the recording, you will see that the attention will be drawn towards those words. Then write the answer quickly.

3. What I disliked most was the map question, and a simple tip (not 'tips', it's plural). Turn the arrowed 'Start' part of the map towards you, north-south-east-west-right-left to suit you.


Reading

1. In this part many people like to look at the questions before the passage. There is no obligation to read the passages first. Experiment with the manner in which you feel comfortable.

2. I will say again, mark the keyword. You can mark the question, then if you find that word or its synonym in the passage, you will understand that the answer is hidden here. The passages in IELTS are not actually passages, one by one (essay). So it is very important to read fast and be able to read the important parts (skim).

3. When it comes to matching questions, write the answer number (usually Roman numeral) next to the options you have used. Do not cut the options, but if you write the number later, if there is a mistake, there is an opportunity to change the answer by erasing it with a rubber.


Writing

1. There is no saying that writing will be good for everyone, but there are many opportunities to challenge yourself. You can do the same thing my dad used to write to me when I was a child. If you have a habit of writing regularly if you correct the grammar mistakes, the quality of writing will improve.

2. I would say, start with ‘Part Two’ and prepare yourself to write 250 words in 30 minutes. If you get 40 minutes for the second section of the test, there is no need to be careful. Let the examiner know what you are arguing in one sentence in the introduction. Write one paragraph for each argument, no more than four in total. Bring back the arguments at the end and say that you think so because of these arguments.

3. The first section is to write on a graph or chart. First of all, see if you can understand by looking at any major improvement or deterioration graph. Write it in the first paragraph. Then slowly explain the rest of the graph.


Speaking

1. I'm not saying that speaking has nothing to fear. But don't be afraid. Be sure to give the speaking mock and take the advice of the mock tester while giving the mock test.

2. Practicing in front of a mirror, with friends and relatives for the two-minute part of the present speech with one-minute preparation in the middle stage of speaking will cut the inertia of speaking in front of people.

3. Try to handle a little joke if you say a word is wrong. The examiner also laughed with me, realizing that I was too scared during my test, and laughed. That didn't hurt my speaking.
