Good spelling is crucial in the IELTS exam. You will be marked on your spelling in the writing exam and it is also important in the listening test. One way to improve your spelling is to read lots in English. The more you read in English, the more good English spelling you are exposed to. If you see a word lots of times, it will help you to recognise how it should look when spelled correctly.
Make sure that you begin every sentence with a capital letter and end it with a full stop. It is possible to end you sentences with question marks and exclamations marks where appropriate. Nothing looks as sloppy as sentences that aren’t punctuated correctly.
In the IELTS writing exam, make sure that you read the question carefully and that you answer the question. Try very hard to keep to the topic of the question in your IELTS written answer. It is very easy to lose your thread. You can avoid doing this by planning your writing carefully.
