How can I Improve my IELTS Score to Band 8?
Hello IELTS buddy,
I have got 7.0 bands overall, which includes 7.5 in speaking, 8 in listening, writing I got 7 and in reading I got 5.5.
I want to get 8/8.5 bands overall. At least 6 in reading, 7.5 writing, 8/8.5 bands in speaking and 8.5 listening.
How can I get the score I want. I have only 1 month to prepare. Please suggest me the ways to get the score. In India, i haven't seen anybody getting 8.5 or 9 in speaking. Also, i find Reading very tough (my weakest subject), am poor in locating answers, especially match the heading, sentence completion and multiple choice question.
i have recently started referring to your website. i have started applying the strategies, but i fail. Also, what should i focus 1st on, accuracy or time management? i have challenge in both aspects.
i will be appearing for general module soon, please help. i can contribute 2 hour daily for studying on weekdays and 8 hours on weekends. help me develop a plan or timetable.
Thanks in Advance,
Scoring 8.0 IELTS writing general test
I've taken the IELTS general examination twice now and in both cases I've received a 7.5 score for writing.
I have 8, 9, 9 and 9, 8, 8 scores for reading, speaking and listening respectively in the two times I sat for the exam.
I need to score 8 on the writing component as well, as I need band 8 on each component to achieve my desired result.
What should I do to increase my score on writing? I'm not too sure as to what I'm missing in my writing either.
Would be really grateful for some help or pointers to assist me in my score. Thanks in Advance!
How to get a band 8 in all aspects
by Komolafe Adenike
I wrote my ielts test in March and my scores were: R: 6.0 W: 7.0 S: 6.5 L: 6.5.
I am surprised as I clearly finished my listening and reading questions. Are there ways on marking both listening and reading (maybe starting an answer with a capital letter) because I was sure on my answers.
