How do I improve my GT reading and writing?
I need 7 bands in each module of General IELTS training. I have already given a shot on July 6th 2013 but got 5.5 in Reading and 6 in Writing though was able to score 7 each in Listening and Speaking.
What to do to score 7 in Reading and Writing modules? Important to note is that marking for General Reading test is much tougher than Academic.
My difficulties getting the IELTS score I need in the actual test
Its shocking to me to have written IELTS three times (the general Option) and yet not able to achieved the desired band scored.
The last one I wrote, I had 5.5 in listening, this was because immediately we were asked to start, I became so nervous that I could hardly hear what was going on. before I came back to myself, I have lost almost ten questions.
Writing, speaking and reading were okay except for the listening which I had that very ugly experience.
Looking back at what happened, I remembered I was under pressure to meet the December 31st deadline to submit my form and the only outstanding was IELTS test result, I allowed that to sink into me, the reason for the reaction in the exam hall.
I advise everyone who want to write the exam to be more relaxed, just focus on the exam on the exam day, that will be the best way to overcome all exams issues.
My experience had been either I made all except one, if I had been allowed to combine two result would have been ok. I just overcame the discouragement of the last one.
In my practice, I do perform excellently, but the result for the real exam doesn't reflect all the hard work expended in the exam.
I just want to take it for the last time, the very last time.

Is IELTS General training difficult?
I have booked Ielts GT on 21 November -2015, received book from IDP written by Andrew Betsis, I could observe that reading passages and questions are really tough and close to academic reading test. In fact they have written IELTS Upgrade practical test on the cover of book .
I am not getting more than 22 points from reading ..is it every body feels same or me only ?
But in general reading questions are pretty easy and score close to 30 easily
