Preparation tips from Batool (Band 8 in IELTS)

It’s Saturday, so I’ll keep today’s post short, to let you get back to the fun things you have planned for today as soon as possible.

When we asked Batool (our student from Pakistan, who got Band 8 in IELTS) how she prepared for the exam, she said

“I did not use any specific method to study, but I practiced hard and I guess the saying is right, it is the key to success.

I did all the exercises from the Cambridge Series, as well as used Target Band 7, and it proved to be of great help, especially in writing and speaking.

Writing seemed the toughest to me, so I used to practice in it daily, but before writing I used to search different samples to get an idea of a proper writing style.

As for speaking, practice as much as you can with friend or family member. The tests posted by different people on this site are extremely helpful because they do get repeated.

I hope everyone gets the required score like I did.

Best of Luck.”

Have a good weekend, everyone!
