Many students face a similar problem – they need to get a high score on their IELTS exam. Does this seem familiar to you? Whether it’s for university entry requirements, a job or immigration purposes, having a certain IELTS score is a concern for many students studying English as a foreign language. So how can you improve your IELTS score? Well, the answer is simple and complicated! 

How does the IELTS exam work?

The test is designed to give you an idea of your ability to use (i.e. speak and write) English in certain ways and to test how much you can understand (reading and listening). These four things are known as your language skills. How well you can speak, write, listen or read depends on two things: how much you know about English and how much you practise using English. 

So how do I improve my English?

So to get a higher score, you need to know more about English and practise more – in other words, if you improve your English generally, your score will go up… This seems obvious, really! When students are thinking about what to do or what course to follow, they should think about this. First, you need to know how good your English is (in other words, what “level”), then find out what level you need to get. This will give you an idea of how much you need to improve. 

Is there anything else?

Well, yes. Students who want to do an exam also need to become familiar with the exam itself. Each exam has its own types of activities and tasks, so you really need to practise these so that you understand exactly what to do in the exam. This is why exam courses are important.
