# IELTS Preparation Calculator Instructions (BETA)

Results are only an approximate estimation for general planning and are not any guarantee of the actual time amounts requiredClearly some people may not want to take Skype classes, in which case that will increase the amount of homework - also more Skype classes may decrease the amount of homework required. Below are the approximate amounts of homework + Skype classes to increase 1/2 grade. So, for example, the ratio of Listening homework to Skype classes is 10:1 and if you chose to take 0 hours of Skype classes, you could maybe do about 15-20 hours of homework instead of 10, etc..
