It is very difficult for most of the students who have given IELTS before to do it all over again because of the confusion regarding what went wrong. It is extra stressful for those who need the IELTS score for pursuing education in English speaking countries since resitting for exam could mean changes to be done in the application etc. So
Here some tips to help you pass the IELTS in the second try.

• Mental Preparation

Stress is the worst enemy for those who are already frazzled about the exam. Breathe in and breathe out and calm your nerves before you do anything because untamed stress can freak you out completely and all your hard work will go waste. But all stress is not bad if controlled properly, it can be used to channelize the concentration and achieve better results.

When you are in the examination hall, stop thinking about what will happened if you fail this exam and think about all you can achieve by giving this exam properly and remember all the time strategies you have prepared and try you level best to stick to them. If you cannot slow the stress, then do not allow it to interfere with your accuracy and precision.

• Give it time

Wait for six months at least before you give another shot at the exam because the experience of taking the test has already given you the leverage over others. Go through the IELTS question paper. Understand and analyse your strong points and weaknesses. Proficiency in a language takes time and you need to give ample time to yourself to reach the desired level.

• Follow the latest trends

Trends are changing everywhere so is IELTS. Over the years, the patterns or the type of question have changed and therefore, it is very necessary to keep one updated with the current happenings. Don’t forget to keep going through previous IELTS question paper for being well prepared for the test. The question may not repeat as such but you’ll know the variety of questions asked in the exam.

Take heart and give your best shot. I hope these tips help you to do that.

Give it time. If possible, it is always better to give it at least six months before you re-take your IELTS test, especially when your actual band score is significantly lower than your expectation. The proficiency of a language is not something that you can vastly improve in a short period of time.

Take a practice test. You can find TOEFL practice online or purchase a test preparation book such as Barron's TOEFL. ...
Buy TOEFL prep books. A good place to start is 'The Official Guide to the TOEFL Test.
