Improving IELTS in One Month

by Bilguun
(Mongolia)

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?

7 to 8 in 1 month
by: IELTS buddy

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

to improve 6 bands
by: IELTS buddy

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

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

Improving Band Score in One Month.
by: IELTS buddy

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.

Improving band score
by: IELTS buddy

It's really impossible to generalise about how quickly someone can improve as everybody is different.

People learn at different speeds, I don't know your current ability or why you got a lower score. Also it depends on who your teacher is. All those things are unknown. It would be easier to give you an idea if I met you and assessed you but I cannot do that.

But going from IELTS band 5 to 7 in two months is quite unlikely. 5 is quite a low level, but 7 is high.

Like any language, it takes time to improve. Going from being quite poor in English to being very good in 2 months is a bit unrealistic so I would probably set a longer term goal to get 7.

Hi,

My last score is 5.5 (Overall)
L = 5
R = 5.5
S = 5.5
W = 6

Can I obtain 6.5 bands in one month preparation?

My required score is each 6 and overall 6.5,so is it possible to obtain in one month preparation?

Can you guide me?

5.5 to 6.5 in a month
by: IELTS buddy

It's not impossible but I'd have to say it is very unlikely.

To get a 6.5, that means you need at least overall 7 in two of the modules. So: 7, 7, 6, 6, = 6.5.

So you are talking about going from band 5.5 / 6 up to a 7. That is a very big improvement to make in one month.

But really you need a personal assessment to find out more about you and your skills. I have no idea why you got those scores or your general English level. If you got those scores because of misunderstandings with the test and your English is quite good then there is a chance.

If you got those scores because of weak English skills, it's unlikely to be able to improve that much in 4 weeks.

So it's likely that you may have to set yourself a longer term goal to improve. You will waste your money if you keep taking the test when you are not near to the right level to get some 7s.

I got 7.5 bands overall with 8 in listening and reading, 7 in speaking but 6 in writing, can I take my score in writing to 7 in a month???

To know that, I'd have to see your writing.

For instance, if you are weak at grammar then going from 6 to 7 in a month would be very difficult as improving grammar takes time.

But if it was other issues, let's say for example you got 6 because you did not answer the question properly or you are not structuring it in the right way, that can be fixed quicker.

So yes you could potentially go from IELTS writing band 6 to 7 in a month but it depends why you are a 6.

It depends on several factors as to whether you can do that and it varies for each person. Can I suggest you look at this page:
