Myths About IELTS
which make most of the students nervous about the exam:
1.Non-native speakers can’t get a band 9 on IELTS
2.I have to keep practicing tests to improve my score
3.I need to learn long lists of vocabulary to be successful
4.They make the IELTS test too hard so overseas students can’t get into university
5.If I don’t understand the examiner in the speaking test, I will get a low band
6.If I take the test in my country, I will get a better score
7.The examiner is looking at the clock in the speaking test so I must be very boring
All these are just myths and have nothing to do with the actual exam. It will be really helpful for the students if they just concentrate on the exam rather than getting worried for something which ain’t true.

For those who are new to the world of IELTS, it is an English language proficiency test necessary for either studying or living in countries where the medium of communication is English. The test scores are valid for almost two years and one can either apply for PR using it or go for studies. With IELTS, there are two formats related to the exam –
- General – IELTS general is the gateway for job in foreign countries.
- Academic – IELTS academic is taken by students who are planning to study abroad.
IELTS score is accepted by universities in UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada and has become a mandatory test for studying in Australia. One cannot be granted Australia visa without passing the IELTS test! Although, earlier TOEFL was the preferred form of test in the USA, slowly IELTS has stepped onto the territory of the United States, with many US universities accepting IELTS score.
All other study destinations either require you to take the TOEFL or IELTS.
The World Speaks IELTS
IELTS evaluates your English language ability (reading, writing, speaking and listening). A good score (usually 6.0 and above) is an entry requirement for many colleges and universities worldwide. Individuals can repeat the test in the intervals of 90 days. In recent times, the IELTS has now become even computerized. So, earlier, where you could take IELTS using pen and paper, you can now take it even on computer!
IELTS Reading is the second section in the IELTS exam and consists of reading comprehension from which one needs to answers related to it!
- Look out for the title, headings and any special features such as capital letters, underlining, italics, figures, graphs and tables.
- Make sure that you understand the questions and follow instructions carefully.
- Pay attention to timing; do not spend too long on one passage or question.
- Do not try and read every word; remember, you are reading for a purpose which is answering the question. No one is going to judge you on how much you know the passage but on whether you can answer all those questions!
- If you do not know the answer to a question, attempt it but do not waste time; move quickly onto the next one.
- Do not panic if you do not know anything about the subject of the text; all the answers can be found in the text.
- The word(s) you use must be taken from the Reading text; you must not change the form of the word(s) in the text.
- Do not worry if there is a word that you do not understand – you may not need to use it.
- Check your spelling. Yes, this is important, because you might have answered it correctly, understood the question well, but if the spelling is wrong, everything can go wrong!!
- Be careful to use singular and plural correctly.
- Focus precisely on what you are asked to do in ‘completion’ type questions.
- Check your answers. Well, if you are serious about IELTS, make sure that you revise your answers and cross check for their validity!!
