Candidates who take the IELTS exam always have a perception that reading module is the toughest of all the four modules which is just an illusion as our candidates felt reading module as an easy one to score band 9. Reading module is usually practiced with the IELTS materials alone by the candidates and by various other institutes; this is where we stand unique. We generally provide students with many articles in English transcripts and make them read then later skim, and finally guess the meaning of some vocabulary for which they find hard to seek the meaning.
Candidates mostly think of whether the assessments of the writing and speaking transcripts are carried out in a genuine manner as some score a less band even after continuous hard works and some score more after less effort which leads to a thinking on the authenticity of the examiners` skill. Becoming an IELTS examiner is a very difficult process and involves various skills being assessed and even the eligibility criteria is set for a degree holder and with teaching experience.
There is a common assumption that accent plays a major role in IELTS assessment whereas on the contrary it is not. Accent is important only during the listening process as the candidate should have the ability to identify and understand the pronunciation of the words and letters played in the transcript. Some letters have pronunciation of phonetics especially letter ‘a’ will be pronounced in the manner of ‘i' which actually follows the pronunciation of ‘ai’.
Candidates who register for IELTS exam has to enter their address details along with their personal details in the respective column, in addition, they should also upload the scanned copy of their passport`s the front and last page.
Universities around the world demand a score of more than band 6 in all four modules and an overall score of band 7 for admission. Candidates need to fulfill this requirement to get an admission seat at prestigious colleges else the colleges of low ranking alone would suffix their need. Scoring band 6 in overall in academic reading module will be a result of hard work and the candidates should be a competent English user.
IELTS candidates are to be taught with nuances for scoring higher band of more than 7 in all the four modules such as listening, reading, writing and speaking as practice alone will not be sufficient for those who need band score of more than 7. Candidates needs to know the tips for not getting panic during the exam especially in the listening module as most of them panic when they miss one answer and eventually this will result in missing the subsequent answers.
Candidates during the examination have to overcome exam fear as this will be a great challenging task for them. It is usual to face such fears but every candidate would be able to score above band seven only if they have the potential to overcome or reduce their fears. At prestige institute, candidates are well trained for such attributes as it plays a major role for the candidate to score high and be relaxed throughout the exam. Achieving such a stage will happen if the candidate turmoil themselves during the vigorous practice sessions conducted at this Prestige institute.
Even though, there are many English exams, IELTS tops the charts due to the fact that they are very easy, understandable and recognised by more number of universities and by immigration departments of many western countries around the world. This International English Language Testing System has many advantages for the candidates who practice it, as it will develop not only their English skills but also their knowledge about various departments of science, medicine, education and so on with respect to the western countries.
Candidates need some specific skills with which they can score more than band 8 in general as well as academic IELTS. For example, it is mandatory to have skimming skills for reading, else the candidate will be reading every word in the passage and will not be able to complete in given time and therefore might end up losing marks. With those skimming skills, they will be able to read the question first rather than ending up straight away at the passage, and identify keywords in the question which will be needed for skimming and then they glance through the passages.
Candidates must plan ahead for IELTS exam, as the eleventh hour preparation will never help them to score a higher band needed for them to get a PR or an admission seat from a well-established college. Therefore a preparation plan is a must from the day one they get enrolled to the course as apart from course work, they have to carry additional exercises to improve their English skill. For speaking, pronunciation and oral fluency is mandatory criteria with which a candidate will be assessed; and these two criteria need a long term strategy for practising.
