How to take mock tests for IELTS exam?
In our blog on Time Management for IELTS aspirants, we emphasized the importance of timing while practicing or taking a mock test. To obtain a high band score in IELTS, doing a mock test by timing yourself (keeping a close watch on time and completing the paper in time) is very important for any candidate. Remember when you do a timed practice the environment must be congenial for the mock test. We offer a very congenial test taking environment to the IELTS aspirants along with the best IELTS coaching in Dwarka.
What do we mean the congenial test environment? It should match the real environment as must possible. What is required is simulating the actual testing environment. For this purpose, practicing in a quiet and lonely area may not be very useful. During the real test, the room will be full of students. Hence practicing in a place which quiet and yet is full of people is more beneficial. Such an atmosphere would be very similar to the real test situation.IELTS aspirants leverage the classrooms of our IELTS coaching centre in Dwarka, Delhi. They enjoy test taking in a stimulating environment.
Practicing in a lonely place leads to the nervousness of the candidates. Hence, simulating the real testing environment (quit yet full of people) which has the elements of timing and seating arrangement may help reduce nervousness. You also need to develop concentration skills which are not possible if you practice the test alone in a quiet room.
Also, there should be no scope of disturbance or distraction. For instance, you are using your phone as a timer or stopwatch and there are WhatsApp notifications are distracting you. Once in a while you open WhatsApp and make small replies. This does not help. Though it would have taken less than a minute to respond it has consumed larger mindshare. Similarly, other major activities that take your mindshare are attending phone calls; and talking to other friends who are taking the test – even if it is a discussion about the paper. Doing such activities while taking the test may result in not developing a high efficiency in taking the test.
