Improving IELTS in One Month

by Bilguun

Hello,

Is it possible to improve my score 7 to 8 in 1 month?

I'm an international student who is planning to take IELTS soon. But I can't decide when should i take it. After taking Official Practice test under strict rules I got 7 points which is one point away from my target in reading and listening. Should I register for it today or wait a while?

Hi Bilguun,

It really depends on what your current level is.

Some people are actually very good at English but need to just learn a bit more about the skills of the test and the format. They may be able to improve quite quickly.

If it is other things stopping such as weak grammar then it will likely take longer.

So only you can really know that, or a teacher who check your ability for you.

If you are not in a hurry I would say wait. Take a few more practice tests and see what you get. If you keep getting around a 7 then it seems like you need to take more than a month or maybe take some kind of lessons.

Good luck

It's really not possible to tell someone how to get from a 5 to a 6 in a forum message.

There is so much to learn - the site is here for that so please study the materials that are available.

It also varies for every person as everybody has different weaknesses and strengths.

Band 5.5 to 7
by: IELTS buddy

Hi,

To be honest, if you really have a 5.5 level of English (i.e. you got 5.5 because of your English skills rather than a lack of understanding of the test) then it is very unlikely you will be able to get to a 7 in one month.

Remember it is a language test - you are talking about drastically improving your knowledge and ability in a language in four weeks. Not many people can do that.

But to have the best chance you need to learn about the strategies and skills of the test and have some practice too, which you can get from a site such as this (see the lessons pages for example) but you would probably also need some kind of lessons from a teacher as well if you have such a short space of time.

Good luck

For some people but not everybody.

It really depends on your current abilities and how much time you can dedicate to studying.

Improving Band Score in One Month.

That depends on why you got 5.

If you are good at English, but you got 5 simply because you did not understand a lot of the test skills or practice enough, then you could improve to a 6.5 or 7 in a month.

So in other words you are now at around 6.5 but you just don't really understand how to best tackle the test.

However, if your English skills are really at the band 5 level, improving that much in one months is very unlikely.

You are learning a language and that takes much longer than a month.
