The IELTS tests the candidate on his language proficiency through a series of strategic questions in the Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking modules.
To score well in the Listening section, it is necessary to concentrate on the content of the conversation or lecture and apply logic to understand the question being asked and answer appropriately. Only two types of questions are asked – Fill in the Blanks and Multiple Choice.
The Reading section tests candidates on comprehension skills. Here, candidates encounter more question types – True/False/Not Given, Paragraph Headings, etc. The strategy to be used is to skim the passage initially and understand overall content summary. Questions can be tackled using keyword search to locate where in the passage the answer can be found.
The Writing tasks test the proficiency of the candidate in terms of relevance to topic, coherence, vocabulary, transitions, user of idioms/phrases, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, etc. The views should be supported with relevant examples or real-time evidence.
The Speaking section tests the language flow in terms of fluency, pronunciation, logical and spontaneous answers to the questions being asked. Accent is not a major issue, as long as it doesn’t majorly affect the pronunciation compared to a native speaker of English.
By and large, the IELTS can be cracked by a fluent speaker of the language without any grammatical mistakes.
