We can follow the same pattern in other conditional structures to communicate the certainty of the effect in the main clause (second conditional).
|The second conditional type||‘If’ section of clause||‘Effect’ section showing…|
|… certain effect||…highly probable effect||…a possible effect|
|Example:||If the IELTS exam was easier,||…students would get higher results.||…students would probably get higher results.||…students may get higher results.|
|Grammar:||would + base verb||would probably / would most likely + base verb||Might / could / may + base verb|
