IELTS Success – Tip-1 is the first of the series of tips for succeeding in IELTS. Aimed at IELTS aspirants, Sahasriya brings its man-years of IELTS coaching success and provides information in an easy to understand way.
A major mistake some IELTS candidates make when preparing for the test is focusing only on mock tests. Many think that the more mock tests they do, the better prepared they will be. This is a misconception.
The test is skill-based, not knowledge-based. This means that each mock test you do will contain different content that you can’t study for. It’s about the quality of your skills and not the number of your mock tests.
Especially, IELTS candidates attempting IELTS General exam should focus on keeping their experiential learning of their respective jobs away and concentrate on English language skills.
Language (and all its parts) is a skill. So, you need to learn reading skills, writing skills, listening skills and speaking skills. You can’t approach building your language skills the same way when you do mock tests. Although familiarity with the test format is half the battle, don’t underestimate the need to develop your language skills.
So, check with Sahasriya, take an English course and/ or IELTS course, immerse yourself in the language through books, newspapers, music and movies. Find some English-speaking friends and organise an English only conversation club. The more natural the language becomes to you, the more comfortable you are going to feel in the test.
