How To Score 7+ Bands in IELTS

How To Score 7+ Bands in IELTS

IELTS certification is typically required for studying or working abroad in most English-speaking nations. IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. This examination is used to evaluate a candidate’s command of the English language and determine whether they will be able to adjust to the language barrier of the nation they are moving to. IELTS Band Score includes four tests–Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking.

For each of these test modules, you will receive a band score ranging from 0 to 9. The average or median score of all these modules will be your overall IELTS score. An IELTS band score of 7 is considered an ideal score because that is what most study programmes or jobs require. A band score of 7 means that you have a good command of English. Here, we’have provided some advice on how to take the IELTS test and score a 7 or above

Listening Section:

The listening module generally includes 40 questions in four recordings. A candidate is required to listen to these recordings which are a mix of conversations and monologues delivered by a range of native speakers.

Multiple-choice questions can be answered with one correct answer or more than one correct answer. Read the question very carefully to check how many answers are required.

To get an IELTS band of 7.0 in listening, you need to get 30-31 out of 40 answers correct to get at least 7.0.

Here’s how to prepare it. 

  • First, practice speaking English for at least 30 minutes. We encourage you to record yourself as it will help you select key areas for improvement in your pronunciation and grammar.
  • Practice with your friends.
  • Pause to think about what to say. You can use specific phrases like “let me think”, “that’s a good point”, or “interesting question”.
  • Talk about common problems. Or you can refer to his previous IELTS test. However, the best advice is to be ready for any subject. 

Reading Section:

The reading test is divided into three sections. So you have to work on three different texts. Each section has multiple questions and you have 60 minutes to answer all of them.

The most important types of questions in reading comprehension tests are multiple choice, matching, sentence completion, short answer, and true/false. 

Writing Section:

The IELTS Writing section analyzes your writing skills and how you organize your ideas, grammar and vocabulary correctly. The writing module consists of two tasks: IELTS Writing Task 1 and IELTS Writing Task 2. Writing Task 1 requires you to illustrate diagrams or information with pictures. Writing Task 2 requires you to write an essay in the form of a letter, problem/argument, or solution/answer. 

Speaking Section:

The language test is divided into three parts.

Part 1: Asks about yourself and your family. The examiner may also ask questions about your job, education, where you are from, and your hobbies.

Part 2: Candidates are given a card with a theme on it. A map contains a list of points that must be accounted.

Part 3: Asks two questions related to the topic we talked about in this section is designed to test fluency, grammatical coverage, vocabulary and pronunciation.
