  • IELTS is ideally a test for language assessment and as it does not require any specific syllabus. However, there is a pattern which is generally followed for the test. As keeping in mind that all the four modules have to be completed in one hour respectively, joining a preparation course can be of great help.   The candidates can join certain IELTS coaching centers that can guide them properly to score good bands in an exam. For every module, the expert trainer at the coaching center can guide the student about time saving tricks.

 

  • The students can have an access to updated study material at the coaching centers and will definitely have an edge over the others in this regard. A clear picture of what the examiners are looking for while evaluating all the four modules ie, reading, listening, writing and speaking can be made clear by the trainer at the coaching centre.

 

  • In case of Writing module, although tasks are simple, but marking is done on the basis of various parameters provided by university of Cambridge. The trainers at the centre can guide the students about the parameters and can help to achieve the requirement of the task. The trainers can evaluate the writing assignments of the students at the centre and can give an instant feedback to them. Weak areas of the students can be focused upon by the trainers.

 

  • In case of speaking module, a student can practice different cue-cards in an exam type environment and receive feedback   Discussion of the ideas in regard to various cue-cards can help the students to generate more ideas and to give different response from what is printed in books. There are many students who do not feel comfortable in speaking in front of a stranger, in that case trainer can guide the students accordingly. Motivation and encouragement always help a person to achieve success and trainer at the centers can be of great help.

 

  • In case of reading and listening modules, strategies, shortcuts, tips developed by the institutes can be of help to solve 40 questions in one hour.

 

  • Regular tests and counselling on the basis of performance can help the students to achieve good band score. The Coaching centres / preparation course can be the guiding light for the student.

 

  • Coaching Institutes are of great help in regard to registering of the exam, selection of dates and centres. The conduct of the exam can be made familiar with the students, except for the speaking module, rest of the three modules are conducted on the same date, their duration, sequence and when would speaking module be held. So the student can join preparation courses to get good scores.
