The IELTS test is a challenging test. It is a test that measures your communication abilities, so having excellent English (through practice and/ or study) is the best way to improve your score. In addition, being familiar with the test questions and knowing the kinds of tasks you will be asked to is helpful.
IELTS offers some free and some paid test preparation online services here.
