At IDP, we are always looking to help test takers get their best IELTS score so they can achieve their study, work and migration goals. As part of this, we conducted a survey asking our test takers what their priority of needs were when taking IELTS. The overwhelming response was that test takers were looking for “easy access to official preparation materials.”  

With this answer in mind, we’ve created IELTS Prepare – a one-stop-shop for all official IDP IELTS preparation materials.  

In this new hub, IELTS test takers will be able to access all the resources they need in one place. From articles, videos and webinars to expert assessments, online courses and practice tests, there's learning content on IELTS Prepare for every type of preparation.  

User friendly

One of the key features of the IELTS Prepare is its user-friendly filtering system. As IELTS is a high-stakes test with four very different sections, some people excel in writing but struggle in speaking, whereas others may wish to focus on their reading or listening skills. The filtering selection on the home page allows you to filter the content based on your needs and skill level.  

For new test takers IELTS Prepare is simply a place to start their IELTS preparation journey.  

When you enter IELTS Prepare, there are prompts to help you understand what type of content you are looking for, the particular Band score you are after and what type of content you are looking to use to prepare. 

Each filter has been designed based on common search terms from test takers and using the recognised official IELTS terminology, so you immediately know how and what you need to select.

Following on from the successful launch of Ask IDP – a content series where universities and alumni share videos responding to common international student queries – IDP has launched Ask IELTS. 

Hosted on IELTS Prepare, Ask IELTS videos feature tips and advice from IELTS ambassadors, Experts and test takers.  

As more #AskIELTS questions get answered, new videos will be uploaded, keeping IELTS Prepare content relevant and up to date for you.
