At the beginning of your preparation for the IELTS, you will want to research requirements for the specific program or programs you are interested in. Typically, you can expect the requirement to range from a 5.0 to a 7.5. As you probably already guessed, more selective schools will have higher requirements. Often times the official requirement is not a reflection of the average incoming score. You should think of it more as a basement score, not necessarily the goal. Once you know your goal, you will want to take a practice IELTS to pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses. If you choose to take a group course, you can then focus your practice on continuing to improve where you already thrive and work to bring up those other areas. Some students prefer to work one-on-one with a tutor. In this case, your learning coach can help create a customized learning plan to focus on bringing your scores up to your desired goal.
