Success in IELTS – what’s involved

If I had a dollar for every email I’ve ever received, saying “My IELTS is in 3 weeks and I need a Band 7 in every section, what should I do?” – I’d be filthy rich! Everyone wants to know this – how do you succeed in IELTS in such a short time?

My answer is – there are 2 stages to this process.

Stage one: learn the techniques to handle tasks in a fast and efficient way. This part is mostly theoretical – and you all know that theory alone is never enough.

Stage two: practice and apply all of those techniques while solving as many tasks, answering as many questions, and writing as many essays, letters and reports as possible.

In the past was focusing more on the techniques and less on practicing – but not any more!

Our new IELTS Online Prep Platform will help you get ready for the test.

The idea of this new website section is very simple – you go there to practice and get in shape before the IELTS exam. Think of it as a gym, because it gives you sets of exercises to do online, each with immediate feedback. Every skill is covered: the reading, writing, listening and speaking. All you need to use the IELTS Online Prep Platform is Internet access and speakers or headphones.

Enough said – check it out. Sign up for a free trial here. Get access to a complete practice test by logging in with your Google account (anyone who uses Gmail has it) or creating a username and password, your choice.

The IELTS Online Prep Platform looks just like the computer-delivered IELTS, and it was designed to be accessed from a computer (not a mobile device). If you are reading this on mobile and can’t wait to log in, watch this video to see what you get on the platform, and then log in from a computer:

  1. Am Margaret Gichui taking my Academic IELTS on 8th December but am soo
    nervous and tensed, I am kindly requesting for your guidance and the best way to prepare in that short period of time. My target band score is 7 and above in each section and overall band 7. I really need these scores. Your guidance will be highly appreciated. Thank you very much.

  2. Nice blog. It’s informative. All the points which you mentioned are very helpful. Success in IELTS requires more than just memorizing vocabulary and practising tests. It demands a strategic and holistic approach, precisely what UOWD’s IELTS training offers. I am currently enrolled, and I can already see the impact.
