Mock tests have been around for a while in some form or the other. Before the rapid growth of the internet in the past decade or so in India, question banks were quite popular among students. What online mock tests do are hand out instant feedback to students. Students sign up for an IELTS mock-test and complete it within the specified time-limit. On completion, an automated score, followed by personalised reports is emailed to the students.
Though a number of free resources are available, it makes better sense to go for a paid package, which will include personalised coaching and guidance from certified English language experts.
There are a number of websites from around the world trying to entice you in joining their ‘special IELTS mock tests’! Then how do you decide, which is the best website for you?

Why a mock test is a must?
We strongly believe in the adage that 'Practice makes one perfect'. If you take up ample mock tests, you will be able to improve your knowledge and find out your strengths and weaknesses and work on them. Finally when you take the IELTS for real as a paid test, you will be clear about your goals and how soon you would have to finish each component of the test. Being well prepared will help you get the ideal score required for your university admissions.
