THE EXAMINER MUST AGREE WITH YOU
Well, we all are individuals. While answering, it is possible that the examiner does not agrees with your opinion, but this does not means that they will cut your marks. The examiner could personally disagree with every opinion you have and you can still get a band score of 9. You are being judged on your way of speaking and not on whether you are able to convince examiner. So, don’t worry about the examiner’s opinions or feelings.
SOME TESTING CENTRES ARE EASY

Every examiner undergoes strict training, and they know that there work gets checked. So, don’t worry about the place and work hard on improving your English.
LEARNING HIGH VOCABULARY WORDS WILL GET ME BAND 9
Vocabulary is an important part of IELTS and one surely gets good marks for using high end vocabulary words. But this does not mean that you will go on and put complex words unnecessarily to impress the examiner. If you do this it looks unnatural and your coherence and cohesion suffers. You obviously need to display a wide range of vocabulary but you should do this appropriately.

There are many other myths, like you can’t ask the examiner in the speaking section to repeat the question or you need to have a particular accent. So, stop thinking about these myths and start working truly on your dreams and score high in IELTS.
