Upper or Lower Case Letters for IELTS Listening and Reading

by MONA
(TELANGANA)

Hi ielts buddy,

I am really nervous regarding choosing what to write in listening and reading sections. So much of confusion regarding how to write capital or small letters.

Please clarify my doubt -

LISTENING- Suppose I want to write all capital letters and by any chance will i loose marks. I have given my ielts once but used lower case and used capitals when required? But its really confusing sometimes with lowercase.

Hence please suggest.

For reading:- Answers need to be taken from text. What can you suggest? How should I write all capital or all small letters in reading?

PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR STRONG OPINION IELTS BUDDY REGARDING THESE TWO SECTIONS AS I WANT TO SCORE PERFECT.

Capital or small letters
by: IELTS buddy

Hi Mona,

You can use either lower case or upper case letters in IELTS listening and reading.

You could even mix them up and it would not matter (though there is no point doing that).

So don't worry and do whatever you prefer.

REPLY TO CAPITALISATION TOPIC I STARTED - STILL HAVE DOUBTS
by: MONA

Hello sir,

This is my reply to the answer you gave me. Sir incase of listening section, we need to write suppose email id say rocks@gmail.com then could we write as ROCKS@GMAIL.COM ?? and also 2AM 2 PM?

OTHER DOUBT:-

In reading section we need to answer numerals to matching heading questions suppose, and in the question they have asked in the question as write numerals as answers say i,ii,iii,iv. In such cases if we opt for capital letters to write in exam in the complete reading test should we write i,ii,iii or I,II,III.

Because I have opted capital letters to write throughout the reading text but the question gives lower case numerals. Then what do in such cases. I,II,III or i,ii,ii we should write? Please suggest what to do ???

THIRD DOUBT:-

In reading section suppose i want to write lowercase letters and say in true/false/NG questions they mention to write as BLOCK LETTERS in the Question. So my doubt is If i opt to write lower case in reading throughout the component should I write in such way - True/False/Not Given or TRUE/FALSE/NOT GIVEN?

Because the test says to be on same track if you are using lowercase or uppercase through out your test.


PLEASE CLARIFY MY DOUBTS TO ALL THREE QUESTIONS INDIVIDUALLY.

THANK YOU.

"ROCKS@GMAIL.COM"
"2AM 2 PM"

Yes that would be ok.

"i,ii,iii or I,II,III"

It really doesn't matter - either would do and it has no connection to whether your other answers are lower / upper case.

"TRUE/FALSE/NOT GIVEN"

Again it makes no difference. Upper or lower is ok, and it has no connection to whether your other answers are lower / upper case.

CAPITALISATION
by: IELTS buddy

As I said it really makes no difference. If you get the right answer then you get the mark regardless of whether you use lower or upper case letters.

If your handwriting is not great you may want to use uppercase to make sure it can be read clearly.

No more than one word and/or number.
by: Zinkal

I have exam on 8th of April 2017 . I would like to some clear information regarding no more than one word and/or number.

For instance:- 10 NATIONS. So is it right or wrong answer.

Second thing is that date formation.

For instance:-10TH APRIL 2016 OR 10th APRIL 2016. Which one is correct.

Zinka if your asked no more than one word and/or number. It means it must be a word and number ; a word; a number. Your answer must be any one among these three.

Regarding dates -If you wish to use lower case letters then its 10th April. If u wish to use all caps in the exam its 10TH APRIL.
