Just make sure you write an introduction, main body and conclusion. If you aren't sure of the meaning of a word or not 100% certain how to spell it then don't use it. They just want to know that you have a good grasp of grammar, are able to link words together, use correct punctuation, spelling etc. I was more worried about the reading as all the academic tests in the official test books I did were difficult, on the day I didn't find them as hard as the ones I had practised.

I'm doing the ielts tomorrow in London, general one, yeah its the writing for me too that is the worrying bit. Written enough essays in my time but the topics are just a bit silly! Just got my skills assessment through today though, so in a couple of weeks could get the skilled migrant visa app in. No pressure at all! arghh. My friend is doing the test as well tomorrow but don't think he has bothered to practice much - better not get higher then me - need the magic 8's.
I am doing for the third time I go 8's for everything apart from 7.5 in writing !! Just because I didnt have time to check it through !! I need 8's for GSM but also have gone for SS for SA as I only needed 7's !!
Good luck to everyone !! I hope they have a easy reading and listening !!
