IELTS listening - Map type questions

Candidates might get map type of questions in section 2 of IELTS listening test but luckily since it will have one speaker alone guiding through the map, they can easily follow and find the answers. Initially, the candidates should make use of the time gap given before the start of listening transcript, during which they should check the places mentioned the maps and consider them as landmark. After that, they can mark the direction of north east west and south so that while the transcription is played, they can easily follow them and find the places. Candidates must also read the places in the question, for which they have to find the directions; they should be well versed with it so that during the audio, they can easily mark the location.
They can also draw lines with pencils to find the pathway when the speaker says turn left, go straight, take the first right and so on, in addition they should be able to understand the direction indicators which the native English speakers frequently use. Finally, we should also check for any spelling errors and since small font might hinder in representing the correct spelling to the examiner, capital font can be writing throughout the listening. At prestige institute, IELTS coaching classes are conducted on regular basis for the above strategies, so that the candidate can score band 9 in these types of questions. Candidates can also practice with the hundreds of mock tests which the institute will provide during IELTS coaching classes.
