Guessing meaning from context in the IELTS exam is an important technique that will improve your reading skills and the speed with which you can read. Obviously, you do not have a dictionary in the exam so there are likely to be a lot of words from the reading text that you do not understand, and you cannot check.

If you come across a word you do not understand, then you cannot spend a lot of time working out its meaning because you only have 20 minutes for each reading. Therefore, guessing meaning from context is necessary.
