IELTS Registration

I

If you are looking at IELTS registration, where do you need to go to? The easiest thing is for you to register online. If you are not sure about how to go about this process, the easiest thing would be contact one of the nodal agents that will help you do the same. One of the issues with IELTS agents is that they often charge an additional fee over and above what IELTS chargers you for taking the...

Training and Coaching Locations

T

Should you take up training only in the location where you are at? The answer to the questions is both a yes and a no. Such answers are often very irritating, but in this case, they are sadly also the only answer one can give. If you are for instance in tirupati, and what to take up GRE coaching, there are barely any GRE coaching centres in Tirupati. While you might find some places that do offer...

Listening – Getting a High Score

L

One thing many fail to realise in their quest for high scores in exams like the IELTS, GRE, PTE, or OET is that, these are language tests and not how-much-can-you practice tests. Candidates often end-up submitting many writing tasks for evaluation or take-up to sitting down for multiple listening tests, then complaining that they are getting the same score as they were earlier. The trick here is...

6.5 to a 7 in Writing

6

I have taken my IELTS several times and I am stuck at a 6.5 in writing! Is IELTS deliberately giving me a lower score? Or is there something I am missing? I am getting an 8 in all other modules.

IELTS Coaching – Reading – CLB9

I

Getting a CLB9 for immigration will mean that you have to get an 8 in the listening section, and a 7 each in the three remaining sections of the test. In theory, that should not be difficult. In practice however, many fail to reach that target. Those that do not reach the target start believing that they do not have sufficient language skills and hence decide to enroll in a training program...

Writing Better

W

We get this a lot. Someone walks in and says they have almost aced the IELTS. They got an  overall band of 8, and they are happy in general. But.. If you ask a writer where stories hide, they would say the stories hid in the most familiar place of all – right after that tentative, italicised but. What is the story here? It is a familiar story. A story as old as… well… IELTS. (or...

Can you get a 9 in IELTS?

C

I am planning to migrate to Canada 🇨🇦, but I am not able to score in writing ✍️. What do I do? It would be easiest to say, write better. But it would also be the most callous of statements to make. And even more so, if you are among those who have taken the IELTS more than once and are disappointed with your scores. Let us first get to the answer to the question in...
