  • Should I try to use a British or American accent?

    Absolutely not! You’ll probably sound ridiculous. There are no extra marks for having a ‘British’ accent. The key is to sound clear and for the examiner to be able to understand what you’re saying.

  • Validity of score

    • The IELTS examination is held thrice a month. Scores are valid for two years from the date the test was taken.

    • However it is advised to the candidates that the scores should be more recent as the time at which the candidate actually applies for visa, is when his score is more than a year old, so his level of English could witness a sea change.

    • Moreover while taking admission to an educational institute, only the most recent scores are considered.

    • Even Test Report Forms are valid for two years. They have inbuilt security measures and cannot be copied. Receiving institutions can also access a database to double-check your results
