How to Clear IELTS in One Go: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking (All-In-One Guide)

Clearing IELTS in one shot can definitely be done. You must have heard that ‘the road to success is always under construction' and this rings true when it comes to your academics. If you're wondering  'how to clear the IELTS on the 1st attempt?' then there's no need to look further, this article has got you covered. So, to help you out on a journey to clearing your IELTS exam successfully in first attempt, here are the areas where you can work on fine tuning your skills: 

The Listening: 
Always read each question carefully, listening to the recording or the speaker in order to sum up all possible answers and the ways to answer it in your mind. You'll then be able to answer all your questions with as much knowledge as possible. Go through the intro of each section, this will give you a clear idea as to how your speakers are going to communicate their message. Write your answers clearly without any grammatical mistakes, otherwise you'll have marks taken off. 

The Reading: 
If you get completely stuck on a question, don't waste too much time on it. Go ahead and take it as an opportunity to move on to your next questions, and you can attempt it again later when you've secured enough time at the end. Focusing on the title and subtitles will give you a true picture of the entire content. Find the hidden meaning in images, because visuals speak louder than words.

The Writing: 
The context of your ideas should match with the questions. Be sure to put up a precise conclusion to support your arguments (if it’s an essay). Follow the 7C’s of effective communication where the element of clarity will help you a lot. Make a logical link between your preceding and subsequent paragraphs and NEVER USE BULLET POINTS. Also make sure to write within the allotted word count. These things often lead to negative marking.

The Speaking: 
Get yourself involved in the conversation. Don’t listen to speak, listen to hear instead. This way you won’t storm your mind with thoughts and neglect the actual requirement of what needs to be spoken. Put enough details into what you're saying, but don’t overdo it. You'll want to give live examples to support the opinions you present without rambling.
