    There are two versions of IELTS. The Academic test is for students wishing to undertake undergraduate or postgraduate study at a college or university. The General Training test focuses more on everyday language and is designed for those making a visa application.

    Students planning to work in or study healthcare in Australia will probably need to take the Occupational English Test (OET) instead.

    Both tests can be tricky, but Insider Guides offers a number of tips for passing the test.

    Format

    First, understand the test and know what you need to prepare for. Each section is further divided into different parts, addressing different skills and knowledge. 

    It’s also important to understand how the writing and speaking tests are marked. Look at the band descriptors to get an idea of what the examiners are looking for and how you need to satisfy the assessment criteria.

    Practice Resources

    There’s a huge range of resources online to help you prepare for the IELTS and the OET, including sample questions, in-person workshops and tutoring.

    Make Friends

    The easiest way to improve your English is to use it daily. If possible, make a friend in your classes and practise together, or find an English speaker who might want to learn your own language.

    Use Your Knowledge

    You will not be marked on your opinions or answers, but on how you express information. If there are areas where you have more confidence, try to adapt your answer to fit those topics. It is better to use vocabulary and grammar you’re sure of, rather than trying to work with knowledge you’re still learning.
