1. General Questions

What is an IELTS Mock test?

An IELTS Mock test is a test that is exactly similar to the IELTS test in every way including content, test timings, structure, marking and question Types, and are tools that can help you prepare for the actual IELTS exam. Many IELTS test takers decide to sit IELTS mock tests to familiarize themselves with the IELTS test and get an indication of how they will perform on the real exam. These tests will give you the opportunity to prepare for your IELTS test using similar questions under similar exam conditions.
Our Mock tests have a lot more to offer that further help you with your IELTS, such as full analytical reports.

Our Mock tests are the closest tests to IELTS. Therefore your score at a Mock test will be close to what you will score at the IELTS test. You can get closer results by taking more Mock tests and averaging the results.

Do I have to take the test at a specific time?

Once you have purchased a test package, you can take a test at any time. We advise you to take the test when you have around 4 hours of time to complete the test in one sitting in order to get a more accurate result.

What is an analytical report?

A standard IELTS report form will only give you your band score in each skill and your overall band score. An analytical report, on the other hand, will give you much more details including:

Question by question report
Examiner’s comments on your answers
Details of your subscores in writing and speaking test
Word by word review of your writing
guidelines for improvement by examiners
Per question comparison with other test takers

You can see a sample of our analytical reports here.

How is the Speaking test done?

Unlike most mock tests which require you to attend a face to face speaking test at a test center, we do the speaking test online. The examiner’s questions will be played to you and you will be given enough time to reply. We will record your answers and upload them seamlessly to our servers where they are reviewed and scored by our examiners.
