Why is IELTS Preparation essential?
IELTS is scored on a scale of 0 to 9 bands. To meet the Canada PR requirements, Australia PR requirements or study visa requirements for any country you need high bands. Although its a English test one does need to understand & practice each section of the test. Since one needs to meet the minimum bands individually in each section its important to get proper coaching else one may end up wasting precious time & money on repeating attempts.
