Grammatical Range in the Speaking Test
The structures you use to compare things in the Speaking Test are assessed as grammatical range and accuracy, one of the IELTS marking criteria.

Whenever a question has a comparative adjective in it, you will be expected to reply with the language of comparison. The rules and structures for comparisons as well as prepositions are discussed in this episode and the accompanying study notes.

IELTS Tips
Practise using word forms which have dependent prepositions. These structures can be problematic so it is best to memorise their uses and meanings.

Memorising them can also help reduce the number of errors that frequently occur in these kinds of structures.
