Speaking sections are usually thought about hard taking in to consideration the time limit to speak on a subject given to you out of the blue. You could always practice speaking on simple topics such as your hobby, favourite book or film etc. Also for the case where you require to make a choice it is always better to open your speech by stating your choice first and then the reasons for choosing that choice.
Writing section is comparatively more relaxing as you get more time to think. Always divide your essay in to paragraphs. It is always lovely to have an introduction, a body and a proper conclusion. Always stick to the topic and give valid points than being vague. A short but valid essay gives more impression than a long vague one. Try not to exceed the word limit. Seldom make grammatical or spelling mistakes. In cases of doubt use simple short sentences and replace the words for which you don’t know the right spelling.
