I would say it all depends on you. I prepared for less than 2 months for it, I finished school almost 10 years ago and I had not practiced maths at all since then.

But I think that if you were a good student back in your middle and HighSchool years, you will definitely start remembering as soon as you read the concepts and see example problems.

English is not my first language, so the vocabulary part was not so high (157/170) as I would have wanted, but in maths, I got a much better score (164/170) that I thought I could get.

I guess getting anything above 70-75 percentile is good.

My target 7.0 Ielts score - the time you found it hard to overcome

As I had planned a strategy to achieve my target 7.0 Ielts score, I decided to brush up on four skills, especially speaking because I had difficulty in this one. At first, I had to rack my brains to remember academic words as many as possible in order to show my ability in learning by heart them in front of examiner. The problem started when I hit the words from YouTube. I would say many sources gave lots of words that were difficult to dictate and use. This time I realized words just went in one ear and out the other. When I tried to cram all, I couldn't keep my mind on the other high-level words. Day by day, lots of words were on the tip of my tongue, it was not easy to sink in new vocabulary without saying out loud and making myself understood. Finally, after trying those methods to improve, I began to pick things up more quickly. All I have to do now is keep it up. I hope I will get my target soon.

For IELTS Preparation, it depends on many aspects:
1. Do you self study?
2. How deep your English skill
3. How long you can spend time for study in a day??

As my experience, I did self-study. I took 3 hours a day to study IELTS and I had 5 month preparation. Why I took that long because I never knew about IELTS at all and I am a worker, so I needed more time to study. I had to study the model, trick and practice as many as possible. I got 6 in my IELTS exam.

My advice is just practise as many as possible. You can download many IELTS materials from internet and get some tricks in youtube.

Wish you luck
