How to get 7 BANDS in 7 DAYS in IELTS?

 

There are a number of websites that will tell you that you can score 7 bands in 7 days in IELTS. Is it true? I hope not. It is virtually impossible to get 7 bands in 7 days if your English level is not up to the mark. TARGET 9 EDUCITY is the best institute that offers the best IELTS coaching in Mohali and Chandigarh.

Obviously, if you are good at English then scoring even 8 bands in 7 days in IELTS is possible. But for this you need right guidance and training from professionals. In this blog, you will get some tips on how to score high in IELTS in a limited amount of time.

There are several factors that influence the band score. It is really important to understand the right path that will lead you to your desired band score. The majority of candidates who aim 7 each or 8 each band often fell short by half band in one of the modules. It is purely because of the lack of knowledge about the details and certain aspects of the four modules.

In this blog, you will find the minutest details that are essential in getting big scores. In IELTS, there are four modules that require equal attention. These modules are designed in a system that they test your English proficiency in the best way. Listening module requires attentive mind whereas reading requires more concentration. On the other hand, speaking and writing require decent English Language skill set to score good.

Four modules of IELTS

As far as the reading module of IELTS is concerned, it is considered to be one of the most difficult modules. The reason that people find this module difficult is that they lack the knowledge of vocabulary. Hence, they are not able to write correct answers. Also, it is important to manage your time in reading so that you are able to complete all your questions in the given time.

There is another thing to keep in mind that you should always transfer the answers simultaneously on the answer sheet in order to save time. Moreover, you should thoroughly read the paragraph and then read the questions to give the answers. It is important to understand the questions carefully before writing the answers.

In the listening module, you should write the answers on the question paper and then transfer the answers in capital letters on the answer sheets after the test is over. You must read all the questions in the section properly before you hear the conversation.

As far as the writing module is concerned, you must follow the word limit seriously. You should write a minimum of 150 words in writing task 1 and 250 words in writing task 2 for both General training and Academic module. Also, try to use more synonyms and avoid the repetition of the words.

For an example, ‘and’ can be written as ‘also’, ‘as well as’, ‘besides it’ and ‘moreover’. The use of synonyms can prove vital in scoring high bands. Writing in proper format is the key to score good in writing module of IELTS. Apart from this, you must not exceed the word limit too much. Lastly, you must try to write in a neat and clean handwriting.

The speaking module of IELTS is a one on one speaking interview. You will be asked few questions in the first round. Make sure that you don’t give lengthy answers to the general questions. The answers should be of two to three lines only. You should stick to your point and speak less. Next, you will be asked to speak for two minutes on a certain topic. You must prepare notes on that topic first. Then you can take the reference of your notes and speak on that topic.

After you are finished speaking on the topic, the examiner will ask you some follow up questions related to that topic. The follow up questions should be answered in three to four lines. The examiner will try to confuse you in this round, but your job is to listen the question carefully and answer it to the point.

I hope these tips will help you fetch 8 bands in IELTS. For better description, you can go through videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCl0oSaFn4gbM-kPZIzXjRRw .

This article will help you to score 8 Bands in IELTS Exam by taking tips from the Master Trainer at the Best IELTS Coaching in Mohali. We at TARGET 9 help the students for IELTS preparation for Immigration and study abroad programs. We have been awarded among the top IELTS coaching in Chandigarh and Mohali. We also provide PTE coaching and we are the leading institute for both IELTS and PTE since 2012. This blog is all about scoring high in your IELTS modules. I hope the following tips and techniques will help you to excel in your IELTS exam.

LEARN ENGLISH

The first thing that any student should keep in mind who is looking to give IELTS exam is that he or she should give themselves at least one full month of rigorous preparation irrespective of the proficiency level of that student in English. Modules such as writing and speaking requires more practice than the modules of listening and reading. One month of serious practice is more than enough.

Moreover, you should also know that what sort of material to follow for all the modules. The material that you ought to practice should be of the highest quality. Once you start preparing from your IELTS  coaching study material, you must know the study material is fresh, and you have not done it before.

IELTS PREPERATION

 Now, I will explain to you that how you can aim 9 Bands in your Listening module. When you start an IELTS listening test, complete it without pausing the recording at any point’. Once the test is over, transfer you answers to a separate sheet in capital or block letters. This is a must habit that you all should follow before going for that actual IELTS exam. After transferring the answers, you should check each answer carefully and make corrections where necessary. After analyzing your listening module answers, you should repeat that test again and again until you reach a point where you give all your answers correct.

 

IELTS preparation

This is a great habit that will surely help you in understanding the mistakes that you make while listening module. Not to mention, a lot of students ask me about the difficulties in diagrams and maps they face in the IELTS listening module. I have a simple yet effective solution for that kind of problem. Before attempting questions that are in the form of a diagram and especially the map, you should learn the directions and vocabulary and synonyms for different directions.

For example, the opposite can also be spoken in the listening test as in front of, across. Another example is that they might use adjacent, along with or besides it in place of with. These kinds of vocab words are important to learn if you wish to score 8.5 or even 9 Bands in the listening module of IELTS.

IELTS READING

Reading module of IELTS coaching is one of the easiest scoring modules if practiced in a proper manner. Although, most of the students who are studying IELTS, find the reading module the toughest. When it comes to manage the time, again most of the students struggle in that aspect of IELTS reading module. I want to give you a simple advice that I give to my students in the class. The first thing that you should keep in mind before starting they IELTS reading test is that you should go through all the paragraphs of the test in 10 seconds.

IELTS READING

Decide for yourself which one to begin first and which one to leave for the last. It is essential to choose the paragraph of your choice. Always try and choose the one which you find interesting by reading the title of the passage. Once you select the paragraph that you are going to do first, try to complete that passage in 15 minutes. If you complete the first passage in this time, then you have a few minutes extra for the remaining questions. This kind of practice will ensure better time management in the IELTS reading test and will allow you to spend extra time on tough questions or paragraphs. You also need to keep in mind that you should transfer the answers into your answer sheet simultaneously as you will not get even a single minute extra when it comes to the reading test. One hour and that’s it.

IELTS WRITING

IELTS writing module requires most of your practice time. There is no shortcut of succeeding in the IELTS writing test. As you know that there are two modules and you have one hour to complete both your tasks. In the Academic module, the first task is Data interpretation and in the case of the General Training Module, the first task is the letter writing. However, the task number two remains the same in both Modules, that is Essay Writing. Essay writing holds more marks, so it is generally preferred to attempt the essay first and then the task one. In an essay, it is significant to follow the correct format as it will make or break your scores in the IELTS Writing module. As far as the task one is concerned, its easy to do and to get full bands in that is not any difficult job. Essays are easily the tasks that can deceive you a great time.

So, be aware! Whenever you think of starting an essay, you should read the questions clearly and carefully as it can be lethal if you make a mistake in understanding the question. You should practice both the writing tasks every day at a stretch so that you can make a habit of finishing your task in a given time. You should be able to complete both tasks in about 50 minutes. This will save you 10 minutes so that you can go through your answers and proof read it carefully. This will allow you to correct any error that you made while you were writing your tasks. Even if can find 3 or 4 minor mistakes in both the tasks then you can save at least a half Band. This half band can sometimes save you giving the IELTS test again. So, these are the things that you need to keep in mind when you are taking the IELTS writing test.

IELTS SPEAKING

Most of the students who come to me for IELTS coaching are generally short in confidence when it comes to the speaking module. But I think that if you prepare smartly then scoring 8 Bands is not a difficult task to do. Its integral to read a lot while preparing to enhance your idea development for certain topics. Read every day and practice speaking for a minimum of 40 minutes each da apart from your IELTS training or classes. It will seem to be a tough task of speaking a foreign language for 40 minutes every day. But, take my word, you will thank me for this tip. Speaking English for 40 minutes or more everyday will make you fluent and will finish your hesitation in about a months’ time of practice.

IELTS SPEAKING

Improvement in speaking is not as easy as some people think. It requires regular and quality practice. Let’s say, if you have a speaking level of 7 bands and you require to score 8 bands then you need at least 45 days of practice to take your level up by one band. Same goes with the other modules of IELTS.

SUMMARY

Let’s face it, the majority of students who take IELTS coaching will never have to worry about getting 8 or 8.5 BANDS. But there are a rare number of university courses and certain occupations that DO require IELTS Band 8 as proof of a candidate’s ability to handle complex detailed argumentation’, some law degrees for example.

Trainers at our institute are specially trained for teaching the students who are looking to score high band score for Permanent Immigration and student visa for Canada, Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A., and other countries. Let’s discuss some IELTS essay topics for both the General and Academic versions of the IELTS.

ART

Art is an activity through which an individual expresses his or her emotions and depicts a certain thing in a different manner. Art is a skill that is disappearing rapidly. People these days are more focused on work rather than art and craft. It’s not that art should only be limited to artists but it should also be practiced by everyone as it increases your capability to think creatively in every facet of life.

BUSINESS AND MONEY

Money is as important as anything in life. Human beings spend their entire life chasing money. Business, on the other hand, is a way of earning money and a lot of people choose business over employment. I do not feel that making huge sums of money is the only intention of people choosing business; there are other factors to it as well.

CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

Crime is the most soaring issues in today’s era. It is increasing at an unprecedented rate over the last few decades across the globe. There are some countries that have no mercy for criminals. While there are other nations that have failed to control crime because of the lack of punishments give to the offenders in their judicial system.

EDUCATION

Education is the third eye of humans. We learn most of the things in life from our society but education teaches us directly while studying at a school or college. Education provides firsthand knowledge of our history, languages, science, and so on. Though education can be accessed by reading books at home I still feel that studying formally at a school is the best way to gain an education. Education is the most common and important IELTS essay topic. 

ENVIRONMENT

Our surroundings like rivers, lakes, trees, air, parks, plantation, and etcetera are known as an environment. Our environment throughout the world is getting contaminated day by day. This issue has been tackled by a number of countries with good effect yet there are some that have not been able to do something about this impediment. We should start to take steps regarding this otherwise the day is not far when we will put our lives in jeopardy.

FAMILY AND CHILDREN

Family plays the most integral role in shaping the life of an individual. Members of the family support each other through thick and thin. Children learn a lot of things from family in addition to formal education. When children interact with family members, they grasp the knowledge and experience of elder members. There are different structures of a family all over the Earth but nuclear and joint family is the most prominent type of families.

LANGUAGE

Language is a way of sharing your emotions and feelings through words. Everyone on the Earth uses languages to communicate with each other. Learning a language in itself is a great experience. There are endless numbers of languages which are spoken across the world out of which English, Spanish, French and Chinese are the most prominent ones.

HEALTH

As there’s an old saying, health is wealth. A person with good health can enjoy most of the things in life. Even if an individual achieves a lot of things in life but without good health, one remains incomplete. Having impeccable health is a boon. There is a myriad of things that personages can follow in order to maintain health.

MEDIA AND ADVERTISING

Media is the most powerful source of knowledge and entertainment in today’s era. Media is a thriving force which can influence the thinking of masses. Media also telecasts advertising on television, the internet and other mediums. Advertisements have changed the way people buy things these days and they are allured by the adverts to buy things.

TECHNOLOGY

Technology has emerged by leaps and bounds. Today, people depend on technology for almost everything. From waking up in the morning to going to office and cooking, everything is now integrated with technology. From the past couple of decades, technology has gained new heights and has helped humans in every field. However, some people still feel that it has both behooves as well as flinches.

TRANSPORT AND TRAVEL

Travel is an activity by which we go from one place to the other by using transport. Travelling has become effortless. Currently, there are countless ways through which we can commute. A recent survey marked that air travel is the safest travel in the world in terms of deaths per year from accidents in the past five decades.

READING

Reading is one of the most intellectual habits that people have. Reading anything will escalate knowledge of an individual. Reading the books, novels or newspaper increases the vocabulary up your sleeves. People often read books during their study but I feel that reading is a natural instinct and should not stop from cradle to grave.

TOURISM

Tourism is a way through which people visit different places for leisure, people like to see new things, taste different food, and meet contrasting people. Tourism is no more trivial activity. These days, most of people like to visit different countries and enjoy, unlike vibe.

SPORT

Sport is one of the indispensable parts of a human’s life. In our day to day life, we watch different sports that are telecasted from numerous parts of the world. Sports is not only limited to a sportsperson. It is an activity that comes with a lot of benefits and should be enjoyed by everyone.

WORK

As an adage goes, Work is worship. This is not true as people across the globe are working day in day out to churn bread and butter. There are a number of people who work full time as well as part-time depending upon their requirements. Work is of different types like some personages prefer to do a job while others like a business. Both types of work demand different skills.

GLOBALISATION

Shrinkage of the world into a small village mainly by the means of transport and the internet is known as globalization. This phenomenon is spreading with a lot of paces. It has brought the world together on the same platform. It has a lot of positive as well as negative effects on mankind.

POLLUTION

Pollution is a menace in the contemporary era. It has created a lot of chaos across the world. In some parts of the globe, it is so adverse that it has even become deadly. Pollution is of different types like air, water, soil, noise pollution and so on. It is a serious issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible.

HEALTH CARE

Health care system of a country is its lifeline. A healthy life is a boon for anyone. Health care systems are responsible for the good health of the citizens of a nation. There are different types of health care institutes. Generally, every country has a private and government type of health care.

AGRICULTURE

Agriculture, in other words, is an activity through which different vegetables, crops and a variety of grains are produced. It is a vast subject for many centuries and an inevitable process for humans. Agriculture is practiced in almost every country of the world providing the weather is suitable. People involved in agriculture are generally hard working.

COMPUTERS

Computers have changed the way people work. Computers have made people dependent on it in every facet and field of life. Literally, all the data from the banking sector, health care, and businesses and so on is stored on computers. It has impacted human life is good as well as bad ways.

These are few IELTS essay topics which can be given to the students in their IELTS essay writing.
