  • - Hey there, Chris here from IELTS Advantage

  • and in this lesson, what we're gonna look at

  • is the one thing that you need to consider

  • before booking your test.

  • So, if you're thinking of booking your test in the future,

  • watch this video because it's going to help you

  • avoid so many problems and I'm gonna reveal to you,

  • during this video, the one thing that you need

  • to think about before booking your test.

  • The reason why I'm making this video

  • is I was talking to a student today

  • and she has failed 11 times.

  • And I told her, immediately, just stop booking the test.

  • You are going to continue to fail

  • until you fix this thing, until you think about this thing.

  • And I talked to her

  • about the reasons why she kept booking the test

  • over and over and over and over again

  • and I asked her just one simple question,

  • were you ready for the test?

  • And she couldn't answer that question.

  • And it started to make me think about the reasons why

  • people book the test and the one thing

  • that they need to think about before booking the test

  • and most people just don't do this.

  • And speaking to her, she was in tears

  • because had spent thousands and thousands of dollars

  • on test fees, on teachers, she was getting a lot of problems

  • from her family who were putting pressure on her,

  • she felt like a failure, and she also talked

  • about missing out on the opportunity to move to Canada

  • and get the job that she wanted.

  • So, I'm sure that you have felt similar things to her

  • or you might be thinking of these things in the future

  • if you don't think about this one thing

  • that you need to think about.

  • So let's take it over to the board

  • and I'll explain it in a little bit more detail.

  • So when a student comes to me

  • and tells me they've failed the test,

  • the first question I ask them is why did you book the test?

  • And often they can't answer that question.

  • And then I try and break it down for them

  • and I say, okay, was your decision based on emotion

  • or was it based on logic?

  • Let's check out some of the common reasons

  • why people book the test

  • and think about whether they are based on emotion or logic.

  • So, common reason number one,

  • my husband, my wife, my father, my mother, my brother,

  • whoever, told me that I should book the test

  • or I have to get it done at some date or time

  • in the future and I booked it.

  • Is that based on emotion or logic?

  • Deadline.

  • So, the immigration department or the place

  • where I'm applying for a job told me

  • that I need to get it done at this time,

  • had a deadline, so I booked it.

  • FOMO, fear of missing out.

  • My friends were doing it, my auntie was doing it,

  • my cousin was doing it, they were all moving

  • to Australia or Canada and having a great life

  • and I didn't wanna miss out, so I booked the test.

  • Hope.

  • I really knew that I was going to be lucky next time

  • and I hoped that I would get the score that I need.

  • Is that based on emotion or is it based on logic?

  • Frustration.

  • I hate this test, I have no idea what to do,

  • there's so much confusing information out there,

  • I have no idea what's going on.

  • Let's just book the test so that I can end this frustration.

  • Number six, exhaustion.

  • I've been doing this for so long,

  • looking at these boring textbooks,

  • looking at these boring YouTube videos,

  • I'm so exhausted, let's just book the test.

  • And number seven, the lure of a better life,

  • the attraction of a better life.

  • I see on Facebook all these people having an amazing time

  • after they passed their IELTS test

  • and they're living in this amazing country

  • and earning all this money.

  • I want that, so I'm gonna book the test.

  • All of these are based on what?

  • They're based on emotion.

  • Basing any decision, especially a life changing decision,

  • like whether to do the IELTS test or not,

  • basing that on emotion is a terrible idea.

  • We want to base it on logic.

  • And when we base it on logic,

  • we ask ourselves one question.

  • So the one thing, and the one thing only,

  • that you should be asking yourself is,

  • am I ready for the test?

  • That is a logical question with a logical answer.

  • It will either be yes or no.

  • If you are ready, you should book the test.

  • If you're not ready, you shouldn't book the test.

  • Now that sounds incredibly simple

  • and straightforward and obvious,

  • but when I speak to students,

  • these are the reasons they give me,

  • 99.9999% give me these reasons.

  • So if this is so obvious and so simple

  • and so straightforward, why do students not do it?

  • Well, they'll often ask the question,

  • how do I know I'm ready?

  • I have no idea whether I will pass or not.

  • Why are you telling me something that I can't answer?

  • I can't answer this question.

  • Well you can.

  • It's really, really simple.

  • What you need to do for listening and reading,

  • are you consistently getting the score you need

  • in practice under exam conditions?

  • So you get, let's say, at least three practice tests.

  • Do them under exam conditions and DIY, do it yourself.

  • You can check your scores, so if you need a seven,

  • and you are consistently getting a seven or above

  • in listening and reading, you're ready for the test.

  • If you're not, you're not ready

  • and you need to fix those little things

  • that will get you up to the score that you need.

  • So that's DIY, do it yourself.

  • You can check your own scores.

  • You don't need anyone to help you

  • with your listening and reading, in terms of that.

  • Speaking and writing, same thing.

  • Are you consistently getting the score you need

  • in practice under exam conditions?

  • Consistently.

  • Not that you got about seven one time

  • and you're magically going to do that on test day,

  • that at least, you know, three or four times

  • you've done both task one and task two under exam conditions

  • and you've got the score that you need.

  • But you need to find an expert for this,

  • a real expert, not somebody who calls themselves an expert,

  • but somebody who has proven results

  • and has the experience and the qualifications

  • to look at your writing or listen to your speaking

  • and say, yes, you are ready or no, you're not ready.

  • In order to be ready, you need to do x, y and zed.

  • Again, incredibly simple, incredibly straightforward,

  • but 99.99% of students just do not follow this advice.

  • But if you do this one thing,

  • then you are going to be ready for the test

  • and you're not going to fail over and over and over again

  • and save yourself so much time,

  • so much stress, so much effort.

  • So your next question is probably,

  • I know that I'm not at that level yet,

  • what can I do to get to that level?

  • So you might be at a six or 6.5

  • and you need a seven or above

  • and you just have no idea how to actually improve.

  • So I'm gonna do two things for you.

  • One, I'll give you a free course,

  • our free fundamentals course,

  • that will show you the absolute fundamental principles

  • of writing, speaking, listening and reading.

  • You can check that out in the description.

  • and that will help you understand exactly

  • what you need to do in order to move up

  • and get the score that you need, 100% for free.
