Hi all, I'm going to be taking the test in a few days and I was just wondering if there are any technical tips that you guys could share. If it's better to take notes during the listening, or highlight when reading, things like that. Also for the writing section, are there specific structures that we have to follow for a given type of text (article, newspaper or whatever). Thank you guy so much!

I am good at listening and reading(scored L:8.5 and R:8.5) but i am weak in writing and speaking(scored W:5.5 and S:5.5). I tried to improve my writing by daily writing a task 2 essay but whenever i try to review it, it always feels like something is missing from my writing and i don't know what it is.(maybe it's because of my depression but i am taking medications for it.)anyways if i sounded a little demanding, i apologise.

So I am a student that goes to a British high school so I am preparing for IELTS alone. I find listening really not that difficult but whenever I mark it using the answers I write down really similar words as my answer but not exactly what the answers sheet says (e.g. i write goverenment body but answer is government) if the answer is very similar, will that count as a correct or would my answer have to be exactly the same as shown on the answer sheet ?

I appeared for IELTS exam on 22nd of June. I got 8 and individually L:9 R:9 W:7.5 and S:7. I messed up the speaking a bit but I'm confident I can get an 8 if I try again. What's your opinion on my score? I plan to apply for masters in USA and Canada.

Hi all. This is my first time giving ielts. For some reason, I am really struggling with the listening section. The fact that all online practice tests say, " you have 10 minutes to transfer your answers to the booklet" at the end of the test seems false. Am I correct in assuming that I will only get 32 minutes for the CDT test. Did anyone who take CDT write down the answers on paper and transfer them to the computer later on?

I also can't seem to find any tips for improving the listening score for CDT. I'm getting a 7.5 only in the GT.

I scored 7L/8R/5W/6S on my paper based academic ielts.. but this is not enough, so I'm going to try again and this time it will be computer based beacuse I'll receive results in 5-7 days.... Do you have any tips?

I'm afraid to achieve lower marks on listening and speaking, instead I hope that on pc my writing will be definitely better

My goal is 6,5 avg and all the sections above 5,5

Now, during paper based test my writing was awful : run out of time, low words count, no time to check it and my handwriting was horrible

Instead my speaking was quite good, I think, just I didn't understand two questions beacuse the examiner was too fast

Last info: I've 14 days and I'm a full time worker

I don't recommend y'all to prepare just a single day and take the test. I got -- 8.0 listening 7.0 Reading 7.5 Speaking 6.0 Writing. I used YouTube and the book sent to me by British Council. That book had a CD for the listening section and it was pretty good. Best of luck to everyone taking the test in the future!

Hello there fellow redditor, I'm an Indian student who wants to apply to universities in Canada, and the Visa requires a particular IELTS score. Could someone please share links to past papers so I could practice?

Thank you for reading!
