What if I miss something in the Listening module?
This fear arises due to lack of concentration. Some IELTS candidates who have made an unsuccessful attempt join us for IELTS coaching. They share that their biggest fear was that they won’t be able to follow the recording in the listening section.

With this they design a suitable study plan customized for each student. It helps them paying extra attention to those tasks will save precious points and enhance the overall band score.
What if I don’t have enough time?
The most common fear, in the Reading and Writing sections, is of not finishing on time. This fear arises due to poor time management skills. Any amount of time is inadequate for a student in the examination hall. The only feasible solution is mastering the time management skill for the exam. What do we mean by that?
The time management skill that works in exams requires an IELTS test taker to assign a fixed amount of time to each reading passage and yet reserve 10 minutes, tentatively, for any questions unanswered. What kills the time most is the fact that the candidate is not finding the answer to one particular question and s/he spends more than required time on just one question. This disturbs the time quotient completely. This approach will help you make sure that most of the questions have been answered.
What if I have nothing to write about?
There are two aspects to the solution to overcome this fear. First, read a lot to develop familiarity with a variety of essay topics. Second, write on a variety of topics possibly assigned by an IELTS expert. One can develop confidence on her/his writing skills by writing and getting feedback.
What if I say the wrong thing?
This fear of expressing the inappropriate ideas can be overcome learning to present ideas logically. One should know that no idea is correct or incorrect. It is the manner of presentation that matters. Whether the speaker was presentable or not, logical or not, confident or not, convinced about the idea or not makes a difference.
