This helped me a lot and I was able to get a very good score. This is my secret and you should try it too. You will be happy with the results.



Reading Kunal Bansal Chandigarh

Well, most of the folks think that reading part is the toughest to score. But you can score really well in the reading section. I managed to score an 8 in IELTS reading section. One of the most important tips during the reading section is looking for synonyms instead of exact words. Also what I did was I would transfer answers to my answer sheet at the end of the passage.

This can help you avoid shortage of time. I also answered paragraph summary questions while I was reading it. This also saved me a lot of time.



 Writing Kunal Bansal Chandigarh

I got a 7.5 in IELTS writing section and I personally feel that I could have done a lot better. I made a mistake of finishing my essay too early and hence the score. The best advice I can give you is to take your time while writing the longer essay. Besides, my secret is not writing long passages.

After I finished my essay, I reviewed it thoroughly. What you can do is try to replace the common words with the fancier ones. This will surely help impress the examiner. This really helped me get a good score during my IELTS score.



Speaking Kunal Bansal Chandigarh

To be very honest, the speaking section didn’t go as good as I expected. But I still managed to score an 8. I also made a mistake of writing down notes on my question card. You should avoid non-lexical fillers like “umm”, “uggh” etc. because they just do not create a very good impression at all.

I avoided all these things and that helped me get a better score. I also included quotes and idioms in my two-minute speech. Using them in your introduction would definitely impress the examiner.
