for me, there is nothing to study about IELTS, u just need to understand the pattern and concepts, you don't need long hours of studying as long as you can speak English. Within 30mins and an hour, I was able to understand what actually was required from me to excel in the IELTS.

Can you offer us tips that you deployed in understanding what you did and how you did it.

Good afternoon all.

Please those that have taken IELTS exams, can you give us clues on how to tackle each part of the exam.
Eg - in writing, what should one expect and how best should s/he take on it and get at least 8.

Try to get at least 8,7,7,7 in LRSW respectively, you'll have a very good chance. But with 6.5, I'm sorry your chances are very slim. You can find the link to the crs calculator on the canada thread and check yourself again.

you sound just like me when all i needed to score was 6.5, only to end up scoring 7.5 in IELTS academic without any preparation. a year later I attempted IELTS general, this time needing 8.0 across all bands, i thought to myself preparing for two days would get me it. I scored 8.0 but not across all bands. Since then I have learnt IELTS is quite tough when you need to score really high as you have very little room for errors. Moreso not everyone has the same background, so some may find even 6.5 challenging.

My advice to anyone taking IELTS for immigration purposes, practice and practice! 68k is alot of money to gamble, at least for poor guys like me. I would say attempt actual test questions as contained in IELTS CAMBRIDGE study pack, if possible study from volume 1 to 12(ie year 2001 to 2017) and rate yourself against the official score tables attached below. Depending on what score you are targeting, determine if you need to study harder and how best to obliterate your weaknesses. The moment you say to yourself that IELTS is a walk over without doing this, you risk putting yourself in a situation where you'd have to sit for it as much as 5times just to get the desired scores that would consolidate your chances of securing a PR. don't end up like me...with what some think is a beautiful IELTS scores but wey no fit epp your mata.

I wrote mine in Ibadan, May 13th. Centre was Mauve21 along Ring road and for speaking it was Check-Inn hotel. I think location changes but be assured that you will be mailed concerning exam venues early enough to prepare.

I wrote my IELTS exams at the Ibadan centre on August 19. I have viewed my result online already. I need the Test Report Form as soon as possible; but these people have not been replying my mails. Can I go to their Lagos office to collect it? Or has anyone who wrote on 19 August received his/her TRF??
