1) Preposition Identification: Recognize prepositions like 'in,' 'at,' and 'on' in the question and anticipate their influence on the answer.

2) Preposition "At": Understand that 'at' can imply a specific time (e.g., at 6 p.m.), part of the day (e.g., at noon), part of the week (e.g., at the weekend), or a particular place (e.g., at the station).

3) Preposition "In": Be aware that 'in' may refer to a time period (e.g., in two days), hours (e.g., in two hours), minutes (e.g., in 10 minutes), months (e.g., in February), years (e.g., in 2015), or seasons (e.g., in summer).

4) Preposition "On": Note that 'on' is associated with specific days (e.g., on Monday) or particular dates (e.g., on 15th of April).

5) No Preposition: When there's no preposition, consider various answers, such as immediate time (e.g., now, at once), future time (e.g., tomorrow, next year), or names of individuals (e.g., meet Sarah).

6) Attention to Detail: Pay attention to capitalization rules, especially for days of the week, months, and specific dates.

7) Spelling Matters: Ensure correct spelling, especially for months and other time-related terms.

8) Familiarity with Date Formats: Be aware of date format differences, particularly between American (month-day) and British (day-month) formats.

9) Continuous Practice: Regularly practice predicting answers using prepositions to enhance your skills and boost confidence.

10) Application in Real Test: Understand how to apply these predictive techniques during the actual IELTS listening test to increase accuracy and efficiency.
