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.
Candidates need brainstorming skills while taking IELTS exam, particularly for the writing and speaking module. Speaking needs this type of skill in part 2 of the module as it is where a topic will be given with one minute time duration for preparation. After one minute, the candidate has to speak for two minutes continuously with respective to the topic. During the one minute preparation time, the candidate should make use of it to the full extent by thinking of the topic and generating more points else he will be running out of points during the two minute speech.
Usually candidates use the last minute for all the four modules while taking the IELTS exam which is not recommended as they need to allocate few minutes at the end to check for errors in all the modules. Speaking module and listening module though being an exception, reading and writing module must have time for it.
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.
Setting an IELTS question paper needs a formula and a methodology which should be strictly adhered to, whereas many IELTS question booklet available online does not follow these procedures.

Section of the former should have two or more speakers in first and second whereas only one speaker should be in the transcripts of the sessions two and four.
Candidates prefer computer based IELTS because of the short time duration needed to receive the results which is five days where the paper based test takes a fortnight time in receiving the results. So following some tips which Prestige institute recommends will ensure that the candidate could score more than band seven in all the modules. Firstly, long time exposure to the computer should be trained for your eyes because during the exam, for more than two and half hours, you would be sitting before the computer straining your eyes.
