Free IELTS Practice Test for study-abroad students

Study-abroad aspirants willing to take (or who already have made an attempt) the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) now have the opportunity to try our IELTS mock test for Free, which was launched on 4th Oct’16.

We bring you the Academic Reading and Listening modules, with similar difficulty levels and question patterns, along with answer keys, as seen in actual IELTS. The test materials have been selected from the official IELTS practice materials.

Why should you take the test?

Your main agenda should be to increase your IELTS band score by practising the mock questions provided by us. This test will help you time yourself, monitor your progress and speed and compare your earned speed and score with other students.

Besides, you will be able to challenge your friends on social sites like Facebook so that you cultivate a learning environment, which will help you on the final test day.

How to take the test?

1. Go to ‘tips and tools’ on our page (at the top) and click ‘Free IELTS Practice Test’.

2. Welcome to the landing page! All you need to do here is read all instructions carefully before you click ‘Try our mock test for free’.

 3. Register yourself if you haven’t registered before or 'login' if you have your login credentials.

 4. You will be taken to ‘my test’ page. Choose your modules – if you want to practise reading first, click ‘practise reading’; if you want to practise listening first, click ‘practise listening’.

 5. Once you are on the instructions page (for both modules), don’t just skim through the instructions; instead read them to understand what exactly you are asked to follow.

  • On the Reading instruction page, you are advised to read the ‘test format’ and ‘directions’ before you click ‘start the test’.
  • On the Listening instruction page, make sure you listen to the audio (at the top) attentively and read the ‘test format’ and ‘directions’ before you click ‘start the test’.

6. The test begins now: you will be given a choice of different question patterns (multiple choice, match heading, fill the form, short-answer type, etc...) Please make sure you answer all questions before turning to the next section/question.

7. If you wish to review your answers, click ‘previous section/question’.

But under the listening module, audio clips will be played only once so don’t expect to hear the audio when you review your answers second time.

8. Once you click ‘finish’, your submitted answers will be recorded to generate results and give you an overview of your performance, i.e., your average speed and score, which you can compare with other students’ average speed and score.

9. You are allowed to retake the test to sharpen your test-taking calibre and improvise yourself for the test day.

Good luck with the test! We look forward to see you achieve a good band score in IELTS.
