How Much Time Is Required To Prepare For IELTS?

This is perhaps the most asked question by prospective test takers, and to which trainers rush in to answer, predicting anywhere from few days to weeks. The fact is, no one knows; not even your well-meaning friend who took the exam and got his/her desired score, simply because each individual is at a different proficiency level to begin with and preparation times may vary widely.

A lot of people have fairly good speaking skills but their writing abilities may need improvement and that can take time. It's important to understand how each section of the exam is assessed before you set out to prepare on your own or undergo coaching with an individual trainer/institute - what the question types are, how they are marked and what the assessment criteria are for the speaking and writing sections.

So the first step towards IELTS preparation is to take a test and get yourself assessed by a certified trainer. While one can self-assess the listening and reading sections, it is prudent to seek professional advice to avoid the pitfalls in each section, and receive feedback for the speaking and writing responses. A good trainer should be able to explain what the IELTS examiners are looking for and hence, the specific areas in which you need improvement. 

Therefore, seek out someone who is equipped to guide you well and set you on the right path.

Good luck on your IELTS preparations!
