One of the most common questions that people ask me is: "How can I improve my score from 6.5 to 7?"
Here's some advice if your current score is 6.5:
- The good news is that you are not doing anything wrong in terms of exam technique. The fact is that you are getting 6.5 means that you are doing the exam in the right way.
- You are very close to getting a 7. In the writing and speaking tests, a score of 6.5 means that you are already achieving band 7 in half of the requirements.
- You don't need a special technique or piece of advice. You only need to make small improvements. For example, in the speaking and writing tests, try to express your ideas in a bit more detail, and try to reduce the number of small mistakes that you make.
