Firstly, if you are going to take IELTS you will first need to get organised.  This is what to do:

  • Decide if you want to go to a class or have one-to one- tuition to help you prepare for IELTS
  • Find out what ‘score’ your chosen educational institution requires (most British universities will ask you for 6.0 and upwards)
  • Find your nearest test centre and register with them.
  • To to www.IELTS.org and download the ‘Information for Candidates’ booklet.
  • Have a look at some sample papers and test materials – you can buy official IELTS practice materials  in book form or download material online from the official IELTS website.
  • Have a look and try out some ‘sample questions online.’  These are great to give you an idea of what to expect in the test.
