These tests are a good resource to assess your English level as well as to estimate your IELTS score. (Check out How are the IELTS scores calculated) Besides, you can find out your weakness by reviewing answers and then make plans to improve. Let’s try to do the following full length IELTS practice tests!

Paid Full Length IELTS Practice Tests

If you would like to buy full length IELTS practice tests, Cambridge IELTS student’s books with answers is your best choice because they include authentic exam papers from past tests. There are 10 books and each contains four full length past papers with answers and tapescripts. Even though it’s not free, it is worthwhile to buy some of these books because you can get better sense of the test, predicate your scores and practice exam techniques through the authentic papers. I recommend Cambridge IELTS student’s book 5-10 as they include more recent test papers which are very likely to have the same degree of difficulty as your test. You can buy one to two books from book 5-10 based on your own budget.

To make the best use of these practice tests, after you are done with them, don’t forget to find out why you get wrong answers in listening and reading section by checking the tapescripts (if provided) and the passages in detail. Even though there is usually no answer for speaking and writing section, you’d better modify your words and writing so that you can get improved!
