Try not to speak too fast - accuracy above speed (also not too slow) and too much speed can be excessive perhaps.

Practise + Practise Again2

Practise + practise again - make speaking in English and answering IELTS questions as automatic as possible.

Understand The Exam3

Understand the different sections of the exam.

Think Of Answers4

Try to fully prepare how you will answer questions about your job etc. - try to get the vocabulary and grammar accurate ahead of time.

Dress Smartly5

Whilst, that will not directly affect the mark necessarily, try to be smart and professional to boost your confidence.

Bring Water6

Make sure that you are not thristy - if you drink enough water, that can help you speak more easily, compared to a dry throat.

Practise In Front Of A Mirror7

Practise in front of a mirror how you will respond.

Record Yourself8

Record yourself and play the answers again.

Ask If You Do Not Understand9

If you do not understand, ask to make sure you are answering correctly - much better than guessing and perhaps answering the wrong question - that about how you will do that.

Answer Easy Topics10

If you need to give examples, try to speak about easy topics for you, that you are more confident for the grammar and vocabulary to answer about.
