IELTS Band 8 and 9 Forum

Are you needing a band 8 or 9 in the IELTS exam?

It's a tough goal to achieve as a band 8 means you are nearly fluent in English and 9 means you basically are fluent!

In this forum you can check out tips from candidates who have scored 8 or 9 in the test, you can also view questions candidates have asked, or you can ask your own questions. 

Please avoid unspecific questions such as 'How can I get a band 8?'. It's really not possible to answer something like that in a forum post so the question probably won't get posted here.
