Tiredness and Anxiety Reduce Exam Performance. Do You Know How to Manage them in the 3-Hour IELTS Test?

Learn how to stay calm and energised and you can get your perfect score.

Let’s talk about a typical student. We will call them Dmitry.  Before coming to this website, Dmitry didn’t understand why he sometimes scored the bands he needed, but he couldn’t pass all four parts of the test in one go. He knew his English was good enough and began to think the test was unfair. He worked harder and harder. He gave up the things he loved doing. His whole life was dedicated to IELTS. 

For students like Dmitry, I have a five-part strategy to manage their energy: 

Managing his body-mind.

By learning to change the way he sat, breathed and by doing a simple exercise he had prepared, he calmed his mind

Knowing how energy flows

By understanding a simple truth, that energy rises and falls in waves he was able to change his mindset from negative to positive

Managing his sleep.

By utilising the trick of sleep banking, he performed well in the test, making better decisions because his mind was more clear and energetic.


Managing what he ate and drank

Basically, eating the right food for breakfast meant that his energy lasted for the whole three hours of the test

Following a plan

Having a trusted plan and making things called micro-commitments helped him make the most of everything he had prepared and get his true score.

Finally, he can make better decisions in the test. When you manage your energy, you can perform at your true ability and get your best ever score and finally apply for your PR visa for immigration.

I can work with just a few students each month, so I decided to write down the whole strategy so that more people can access this information.
