    How easy/difficult is the IELTS for an IB student?
    How long should I prepare for it?
    Im an IB student with English Lit SL and have been speaking English since as long as I can remember

    I've never sat the IELTS and I think anybody making you do it in spite of SL English Lit is an idiot.

    Anyway if you are fluent, as you likely are from your post, you should have no problems! I don't know if grammar comes into the frame for IELTS but if you are a native speaker then you may wish to brush up on that sort of thing (if it forms part of the exam) because obviously learning grammar naturally versus doing it for an exam may be a different kettle of fish.

    Speaking is a piss take for me
    Reading might be a lil difficult coz of timing
    Writing is arguably the most difficult coz of grammars.
    Listening is also stupidly easy
