yes if we think normally but how is about the reality? is there someone can get it? and how is about your experience my friend? Did you take preparation course before? (sorry please correct my english)
Dear my friend, I don't quite understand what you mean by 'how is about the reality'.
Like I said before, do SEVERAL MOCK TESTS first.
then you will know your prediction score.
after you have four or five prediction scores
you can then decide whether you want to take the REAL IELTS
or whether you want to take PREPARATION
now I assume you don't know what mock test is.
Purchase a book published by Cambridge, it is called CAMBRIDGE IELTS 9
or 8, or 7, or any kind of the series. I think it should be available in Gramedia or major book store, but if you don't find it you can use other books such as BARRONS' or UTS INSEARCH or KAPLAN
Do the test from the book.
That is what I called the mock test.
For instance, you have done all four mock tests and you get 7 three times and 6.5 one time. It is safe to assume that you will get 6.5 in the test, but if you are lucky you may get 7.
I have so many clients get 7 even 8 on their first try, of course, it is not a surprising fact, considering most students in Palembang now speak / use English in their life since elementary school.
