Hey, this is Viktor, Zheng Yihang, and I’m from Business English Class 1 Year 2016. IELTS is tricky, and it always is. However, it can always be a lot easier for you. Relax,whenever before or after the exam, just see it as a game. So, here are some RULES that I could offer you, which I hope it’s going to be helpful for you.
Always pay attention to the details. It’s the most important one for me, since I’ve noticed that it’s the main reason why I lost my scores, especially for writing and listening. It’s vital.
Do not get obsessed with any new words. During the whole exam, time is gold - every second is precious, so don’t get stuck with that one word you don’t know what it means. What you suppose to do, is to figure out the right answer, not the words. Tik tok...
Follow the rules. It’s one simple rule that everybody knows, but still, lots of candidates usually forget it and lose ALL their scores. DO WHAT THE EXAMINER TELL YOU TO DO. Like “Put down your hands when time’s up” or “Do not open until I tell you to do so”. Please obey the rules, or you are gonna lose.
These are 3 main rules during the exam, please always follow them, then the scores will be all yours. (P.S.: If you need any practice, please do the OFFICIAL ones since those questions are the most familiar ones with the real exams.)
