How can I improve my IELTS score?
As a result, the first step is to read, write, listen, and speak to the required IELTS Band Score.
In the interim, I’ll provide some background information to make things as straightforward as possible.
In my perspective, knowing how to take the IELTS Training Centre in Dubai is half the battle. Consider how much easier it was the second time since you were prepared! I failed my driver’s test FOUR times!
What is the IELTS test all about?
To begin, make certain that IELTS is the proper test for you.
IELTS stands for International English Language Testing Method, and it is a language assessment system for people who want or need to study in an English-speaking environment. A certain IELTS Band Score is required by many jobs, organizations, and immigration authorities.
Your IELTS Band Score is only valid for two years, so prepare appropriately.
The next step is to determine which IELTS exam version is suitable for you. Academic and General Training versions of the IELTS test are available. Take the IELTS Academic version for undergraduate or postgraduate education; the IELTS General Training version for emigration or work abroad.
There are four sub-tests in both editions: reading, writing, hearing, and speaking. The Academic and General Training editions of the IELTS Reading and Writing sub-tests differ. A qualified examiner will assess your writing and speaking abilities and provide you with a Band Score.
How can I sign up for IELTS?
The IELTS Handbook and Candidate Information for Candidates are available for purchase on the official IELTS website. However, I’ll give you a quick rundown of the situation, as well as some of my own ideas, below.
- You go to an IELTS Test Center near you and register.
You can locate the address, phone number, and future exam dates for your local test center on the official IELTS website.
- Submit an application to an IELTS test center. If getting there is a challenge, the IELTS website has an application form. You can also request one from the Test Centre to be mailed to you.
- Choose a test date and complete the application. Choose either the Academic or General Training program, depending on your needs.
- Have your application reviewed by a native English speaker.
- Send your completed application, two passport-sized pictures, and test cost to the Test Center of your choice.
- Bring the same ID you used to apply to the exam-on-exam day. You will not be able to take the test if the two pieces of identification are not identical. If this is not possible, please contact the Test Center as soon as possible.
- The Exam Center will give you a confirmation letter with the exam day and time after your application has been approved.
What should I do on the day of the exam?
Get a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast first and foremost (I’m a mommy!). Plan to have lunch if your Speaking test falls on the same day as your writing test.
Remember to bring your ID with you because it will be checked when you arrive.
Personal items, such as cell phones, are not permitted in the examination room. They can be left outside the room.
When the invigilator (test supervisor) announces that the test has begun, there is nothing that can be said. Raise your hand if you have a question.
Then there is the hearing, reading, and writing tests (I will give you further details about the different sub-tests in my next posts). The date and time of your speaking test will be communicated to you by your Test Center.
So, what’s next?
Now it’s just a matter of waiting for the results. They’ll arrive 13 days following the test, so expect them in two weeks. You might be able to get your findings on the 13th day, but you’ll have to ask. The Test Centre, on the other hand, is unable to provide you with your results through phone, fax, or email.
You will receive a Test Report Form (TRF) with your results instead of a certificate. It’s important to remember that you only get one Test Report Form. Remember that you have the option of requesting up to five additional copies of your results to be forwarded to the organization that made the request (university, immigration etc.)
It’s finally time to rejoice! If you don’t know what to do if your IELTS score is low, visit my post ‘What to do if your IELTS score is low.’ It’s possible that the situation can be salvaged. In any case, it’s time to get moving!
Here’s to the highest IELTS score possible!
