If you are preparing for the IELTS exam, focusing on spelling is very crucial. You may have all the answer which is asked in the exam, but if you make spelling mistakes then your efforts will be worthless. Words that create confusion always diminish your scores. Many of us give maximum time for preparation and set a target to score high in the exam but some spelling mistakes we make in writing the IELTS Exam affect IELTS score.
When we read English we find many words that have the same pronunciation but in writing we have to write a different spelling, we are always confident in exams that we are prepared to write a correct spelling because of speaking but similar pronunciation words always confuse us, even we write the incorrect spelling in the exams with the confidence to score maximum, but in the result, we don’t score as per the expectations. Similar pronunciation words such as son and sun, alter and altar often create confusion in the mind.
In the English language, we also get confused with silent words such as bridge, ledge, and edge. When we pronounce these words we don’t pronounce d, d is silent. We often write the words as we speak and these habits can diminish your IELTS score.
Besides silent letter confusion, you may face double letters confusion, words which have double letters such as accommodate, occurrence, and embarrass always confuse the exam takers and you often think you have the knowledge about these words and you choose the right option as per your knowledge but your IELTS score may be affected.
Spelling mistakes are a common problem that IELTS exam takers face, and they can improve it through practice. Proper practice with speaking and writing can be helpful to improve these mistakes. Words often create confusion without practicing.
