Want to Pass Your IELTS Without Studying? Follow These 6 Simple Tips

January 11, 2022

It’s been japa season for so long and almost every Nigerian is trying to leave this country. We know you probably want to leave too and you’re most likely going to need to write IELTS, which is why we’ve come up with these easy tips to help you pass your IELTS on the first try.

1. Don’t talk for 10 days.

If you really about passing your IELTS, you’ll keep quiet for more than 10 days sef. Don’t go around doing cho cho cho up and down before you mess up the little English you’ve been managing. Keeping quiet helps keep the English in your brain safe.

2. Spend your days thinking of how to answer your questions.

Again, the perks of keeping quiet. When you keep quiet, you get to think of how to answer the test questions correctly without having to study. Fink about your answers and spend more time finking about thinking about your answers.

3. Don’t look for trouble before someone swears for you and makes you fail your exam.

The fact that we have to tell you this means you are nowhere ready to take the test. Why are you even looking for trouble a few days before writing IELTS when you know your village people are so hardworking? It makes no gaddamn sense.

4. Tell your Babalawo to reveal test questions to you. 

Why study when you can just call your Babalawo to project the questions and answers to you in your dream? You have to let them know a few weeks ahead of time sha, so they can get all the questions and answers ready for you immediately you need them.

5. Get a math tutor. 

This is one of the best things you can do when preparing to pass IELTS. Maths tutors really don’t care about their grammar and tend to make a lot of errors when speaking. Constantly communicating with them will help your brain immediately recognize wrong grammar. 

6. Only watch Nollywood movies on Youtube. 

We are being really specific because we really want to help your life. Spend a chunk of your time watching Nollywood movies on Youtube. For best results, combine this with reading Yoruba movie subtitles.

Try these easy tips first before shitting on these brilliant ideas.
