Writing is essential if you want to score well in IELTS, but unlike your college exams, you won’t be getting more marks if you write more. And then there are many other things that are waste to add in your writing. Go on and read below to find out how to save your write up.
Save Your Write Up
1. No extra marks, for extra writing. Remember, you do not get marks if write more than the specified word limit. A word limit will always be specified. Make sure to notice that.
2. Please try to avoid sentences that are too simple or too obvious. This makes the reader lose interest in your writing. For e.g. Now days everyone likes to listen music. There is nothing new about it. You can rather write it as -: Now days, everyone likes listening to music because it provides entertainment to all.
3. Try to ask yourself Who, what, why, how often, how much; questions before writing. Answering these questions would help you in writing better.
So, go practice more. And make sure you practice effectively. The better the practice, the better your score.
Uncertainty is the one thing that can cross you at any time. There may be a case when you want to cancel or postpone your IELTS exam. Although this is possible, it depends on when you are requesting for the cancellation.
HOW TO CANCEL THE IELTS
Cancel before five weeks of the exam
If you cancel your IELTS exam at least five weeks prior to your exam, you are given a refund and you are required to fill in an application form. If the form is accepted you receive the cheque of the refund in the address specified by you in the form.
Cancel within five weeks of the exam
If you cancel within five weeks because of some medical reasons, you need to provide the original medical certificate. In case of serious illness, you will receive a refund. But if the illness is thought not to be serious, you may not get any refund.
If you cancel the test, because of the bereavement of a family member, again, you need to provide valid proof if you want a refund.
If you cancel for any other reason, you don’t get any refund.
Although often neglected, spelling matter in IELTS. Spelling play a very important role in deciding your band in IELTS. A correct spelling could save you good marks in Listening as well as in lexical resource. Although few incorrect spellings are ignored, but if you make many, it could lead you to a trap hole. Today, I bring to you few of the common English spelling we often get confused on.
1.Till and Until-: often it seems that since till has two l in the end, until will have two l, since all we are doing is adding un to it. How to remember this? Let us just say, sine two words are added in front of it, it loses the two l, making it until.( this is no logical explanation, it is just a way to remember).
2.Forth and Fourth-: Both of these words are pronounced similar. But, forth means to move forward, but fourth means the number four. How to remember this? Easy enough. The one that spells like “four” refers to it. The other one is forward.
These spellings could sound trivial, but when written wrong or understood wrong, could create a havoc in your exam.
