Hi all IELTS course in London students! Here's a word-or-two of advice: always aim to book your IELTS exam place 5 weeks in advance. Places get booked up very quickly and students can be disappointed when they can't get the exam date they want. Many times students arrive saying something like, "I need an IELTS exam result of 6.0 for next Monday. Is that possible?" The answer is often, no, I'm afraid for 2 main reasons:
1. There are no places left at the exam centre of your choice.
2. The student may be currently assessed at an IELTS score of 5.0. We generally say that it will take an average student around 6 weeks of 15 hours per week study to improve by 0.5 overall on the IELTS rating system. This is particularly relevant these days because the UKBA, for example, require a certain score in all skill areas for a TIER 4 visa as do many universities.
So, be prepared & be realistic! Don't rush the IELTS exam process if you can help it!
