Hello everyone,

Just trying my luck if anybody can help me or be my study partner? Im based in Singapore and working as a nurse. I need help in writing, that's all. I'm honestly struggling to get a score of 7. I'll be taking the exam on April 30th.

Hope this works.


My exam will fall on1may..i need 7band each...suggesting something


I would like to share my experience with you.

I was a TOEFL taker and my best score in TOEFL (2014) was R30 L29 S23 W29. I started studying for IELTS this year.

1st attempt (Jan 2016): L7.5 R6.5 W7.0 S6.5
2nd attempt (Feb 2016): L7.0 R8.5 W6.5 S6.0
3rd attempt (Mar 2016): L7.0 R9.0 W7.0 S7.5
Writing: Cambridge IELTS 9 and 10, Simon's ebook & blog
When I wrote Task 2 in Simon's style, I got 7.0.
In contrast, when I wrote in a different style (my style for TOEFL), the score dropped to 6.5.
I strongly recommend to follow Simon's advice.
I did...
1. analyze his essay structure
2. pick up his ideas & vocabulary from his ebook
3. practice

Best Regards,


I cudnt view my result of idp .I'm writing for.the 3rd time .how shud I view the result n there is holiday for 3 days I'm stressed. ....


Glad to know about your success
Please would you share about any strategy in reading
I m very poor

Hi Amina,

Reading is my favorite part, and I improved my reading skills by reading many materials for TOEFL.
When I started study for IELTS, I needed to learn some skills for IELTS.
For IELTS, I studied with Cambridge 9 and 10 and Simon's blog. I recommend you to follow Simon's advice.
My style is...
1. read questions and pick up keywords from questions
2. find keywords in the passage
3. start the 1st question such as choosing the title (I start reading the passage at this step.)
4. when I come to the paragraph for other questions such as gap-fill and True/False/Not Given, I answer the questions.
I was wondering why I got 6.5 at the 1st attempt, and I guess I was very careless. At the 2nd and the 3rd exam, I reviewed all of the answers in the last 5 min of reading section.

Good Luck!

Hi Simon

I did an exam in Feb 2016 (Academic,In Australia)and unfortunately I could not finish the first task of writing and I got 5.0 for my writing. Then I attended another exam in March and I wrote a very good writing and this time I got 5.5!?! It is very strange and confused me. Do you have any idea what is going on!?!

hi everyone
if anyone took ielts on 19 March, in Melbourne - Australia, for the academic module, could you please share the writing and the speaking questions

@ Toru
Thank you very much for tips

my exam is on 31st march please give me some advice

I'm sitting IELTS exam on April 31st, I'm able to manage with rest other section quiet well, but my Speaking leaves a lot to be desired.It'd be nice if anyone gives me any tip to improve confidence and fluency in speaking and It'd be great if someone is looking for speaking parter.
My email_ID is


It is Murat from istanbul, Turkey. I need your suggestion. I have receieved my toefl result 70 (r:11 l:19 s:20 w:20) I need to get 75 for my application or I should take 6 from Ielts. But, I am confused after this result. What do you suggest me to do ?

Why are you guys post Toefl results or so?! This is ielts not toefl!!!

Hi Murat,

I recommend you to read more materials and have a tutor for TOEFL or IELTS. I do not know which exam will be better for you.

Hi H and other members,

The reason why I showed my TOEFL score is that I did not want to say I had some magic to improve reading score from 6.5 to 9.0 just in 3 months. Reviewing answers is very important.

I am sorry for my comments. I will not leave any comment regarding TOEFL.

I can't remember the precise task but smth, people think that going to a university leads to success in life,others argue about it. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
Speaking was the best part of my test, i had to describe an older person who i admire. After part 2 she asked me a lot about differences in generations, does media raise the concern about lifespan rise.
Overall, it wasn't easy:-(

Thanx Raichal, the last one is tin, isn't it? I heard either timber or tin, but put timber on my exam paper:-((

I took an exam yesterday.
In listening, all the accents were Australian. Section one a conversation btw a real estate agent and a future renter, filling the blanks. Section 2: 3 multiple choice questions about things doing before a free parachute jump. Also a map and some places marked, you listen to find out which place is which. Section 3: About turbines in an Australian town. Section 4: Some person talks about a theorytician's ideas about digital language and some other people's views (mult choice and write the thinkers' names next to the ideas)

Reading: 1) A text about Malawi fishing plummet 2) Feeding children at school in an African village 3) Watson and his behaviorist views in psychology

Writing: 1) One line graphs shows two Austrlain cties's maximum and minimum temperatures throughout 12 months. A bar chart shows same cities's rainfall amount for 12 months.
2) Some people think university education is the best way to sucess. Others claim nowadays this is not true. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Speaking: Where is yor hometown, are you happy living there, why why not. CUE CARD: what is your biggest success. why do you think it is like that. other questions about snacks, when do i eat them, what type of snacks. what do you think about internet fame and so on.

For the cue card they asked my friends about magazines and a long walk they took.

Good luck!

Oh by the way I took it in Turkey.
I wrote "metal" first, then changed with timber. Before I gave my paper ot I changed it to "metal" :/ Because a turbine being timber doesn't make sense to me. It would be awful in rain I thought :P

Ayse, thanks for sharing,the same questions were here in Manchester. I know timber doesn't make sense, tin is logically correct, but nevertheless i put timber:-(

Hi H,
Well, two of my friends said they put "timber". It was quite a hard one i think. I heard the girl talking about what the turbines are made of, if it's metal, man laughed and said yes, then stated fiberglass (which was written), i thought ah that's it, wrote metal down and relaxed. Then he said tin and i was like "wut??" Is he going to say which metal? Should i write that instead? and before i get a hold of it he started to talk about timber :/ they baited us badly. This isnot about measuring English anymore. They should have stopped after fiberglass mentioned. It gave me a false relaxation.
So in the end i couldn't be happy with timber and changed with metal again, but by the way of his speaking i think all three must accepted correct -_-

HI Yash, I am also not perfect for in ielts test can you also mail me the ielts tips

Hey, I am quite confused with expressing quantifying differences in writing task 1.
"In Ireland, there were six times as many adolescents who favoured playing computer games (60%) as those who preferred reading. "
Is this sentence right? And could you please give more examples and other patterns? Thanks!

Hello everyone,
I am writing this from India, and already booked my IELTS (General Training) exam for May 21st, 2016.

Albeit, I am preparing for that yet I am less confident about my result especially for listening as well as writing modules as I have to score minimum 7 band in each one.

Hence, any body throw some light and please guide me in perfect way, so that I will hit my target very hard.

I anticipate prompt replies. Feel free to contact me at and my watsapp No. +91-9996487775.

Thank you.
