IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is a long test of 3 hours (excluding speaking which is usually before or after the other tests) and will be very exhausting. Make yourself full of energy and confidence before the test by taking adequate sleep the night before and eat well.
A fully rested body and tummy will help you keep your concentration on any kind of exam. Also, make sure to use the restroom before the exam starts.
No Blank Answers
A very useful tip is “don’t leave your answer blank”, especially in reading and writing tests.
Even if you don’t know the answer you can make a guess of that question. Sometimes a random guess can also be a correct answer if you are lucky at that time.
As you know, there are no negative marks for wrong answers in IELTS so take your chance and don’t leave blank answers.
Focus and keep calm
Avoid thinking unnecessary things and only try to focus on the questions and answers during the test. People usually get nervous when they face a difficult question and it’s normal.
Learn some breathing exercises and give yourself some time to regain focus. Losing your focus especially on your listening will be very costly and a calm mind will help you avoid mistakes.
Don’t be late
Another important topic is don’t get late reaching the center. You should get to your test center on time on your exam day. Know the direction of the center and plan earlier to reach on time. You don’t want to be late and rush to your exam. One should know the value of time while going to give any sort of examinations in any place.
You will also need to give plenty of time for your identity card check, having your photo was taken, registration, and give yourself time to settle in the stressful environment of the exam hall.
I hope that you will find these tips useful and keep the points in mind while taking the test.
