IS PREPARATION NECESSARY?
IELTS is a high-stakes test, involving significant time and money investment.
As with most things, there is a great deal of misinformation regarding
test content, strategies and preparation. It is essential that you get advice from reputable and experienced sources. All test-takers should prepare themselves before taking the test in order to ensure that they achieve the best possible score.
