How to Score High on English

Score HIGH on NEW English Tests
Why international students fail English tests
Students fail because they do not understand the test requirements.
Students fail because they have limited English vocabulary.
Students fail because some English skills are not practiced.
Students fail because they rely on "secret tips" rather than real skill.
Students fail because they cram for tests and become confused.
Students fail because they become upset and cannot perform.
How international students can SCORE HIGH on NEW English tests.
Is the test a written test only? Students must understand how the English information is presented, what English skills are being tested, and how answers must be submitted.
Second step is to understand the volume of advanced English skills and vocabulary required to score high on these tests. Students must have studied and practiced English for 2500 to 5000 hours counting school classes and self study.
Students require a vocabulary of between 8,000 and 15,000 words to score high on the new TOEFL, TOEIC, AP, IELTS and Cambridge tests.

To score high students require all four English skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening), technical language structure knowledge (grammar) and the application of the grammar knowledge in the active productions of speaking and writing.
All new English tests are a combination of facts and the application of English skills including technical grammar knowledge. Students who only cram for tests will fail most of the new tests as answers require the application of English grammar skills. I have never met a student who can remember crammed English facts correctly.
Students become upset when they read questions they cannot answer, questions they cannot understand, words they do not know the meaning of, or "secret words" that occur in two or more answers.
Students that are rested, relaxed and arrive on time at the test site will score higher on the tests.
What English Should I study to PASS English Tests?
Many business English courses cover 90% of what students require to pass the TOEIC exam. Many advanced English courses cover 90 % of what is required to pass TOEFL, TOEIC, AP, IELTS and other English tests.
Many Toeic, toefl, IELTS courses only provide practice tests without teaching any vocabulary the four English skills and applied grammar practice. Students must create a plan to increase all applied English skills, vocabulary and become comfortable with the test requirements and answer formats.
Students can take combinations of programs and still pass tests.
The only secret is to have a balance of applied English skills and factual knowledge.
