Here are some tips which can help you to improve your IELTS Listening score-
Read the questions carefully before answering them.
Read the questions carefully before answering. Be a smart listener plus an intelligent reader who knows the demand of the question. But if you don’t get anything and you are not sure about the answer, in this case try to attempt the question and don’t leave any question unanswered.
Practice and make yourself comfortable to the accent and way in which letters and numbers are pronounced whether it is British or American.
The only way to get correct answer is daily practice of listening module. Perform passive listening as compared to active listening .It will make you habitual to the English language. Listen to songs, videos and watch English movies.
Follow the instructions very carefully.
Make sure you write words within the word limit because if you write more words than this can further mark your answer wrong. For example, instruction is “Write no more than one word”
And you have written,”School Children “instead of “Children”. Then it will be a wrong answer.
Check your spellings.
Writing wrong spellings can also be a reason to get low band score in listening. Sometimes candidates have good listening skills but while writing they write wrong spellings or in hurry they miss some letters .So, Practice more if you are weak in spellings and after transferring answers to answer sheets, recheck the answers again.
