Dealing with the IELTS Examiner
Hello ielts buddy,
I took the speaking exam this morning, and it was the most longest conversation I had (well I think it is) anyways, I did find it difficult tho.
But at the end of the conversation, the examiner said that he had a nice conversation with me.
I'm wondering if that is a good sign that I can have a high mark or the examiner is just being polite?
Please enlighten me. I still have to take the 3 exams tomorrow, and this suspense is killing me.
By the way, I think I did horrible in the speaking test, i ended up repeating myself, and noticed multiple grammar lapses. 😭😭
Will it affect my score if I asked the examiner how I did?
I had my speaking test today. I did it well but asked for suggestion of how my speaking is.
Will that affect my score?
Making conversation with the IELTS examiner
Hello IELTS Buddy,
I'm going to take the test in two weeks and I was wondering if I can ask the examiner some questions too at the beginning, such as his/her name or where the examiner is from.
I ask this because it would be the perfect way for me to lessen my nerves and be able to answer properly the following questions if he/she is not a total stranger.
Courteousness of the Examiner
by Khan Muhammad Asad
Today I was answering one of the questions in part 3 speaking test.
The examiner told me keep to going with her hand gesture. I answered 2 questions in part 3 where she nodded in a positive way and had a slight smile. All these things occurred in the last section of the test.
That's the observation I have just noticed.
She said That is the end of the speaking test. However, when I was getting off my seat she said "Have a nice day".
Should I read something more into this or was it just her courtesy?
What should you wear to the IELTS Speaking Test?
Does dressing also matter in the speaking test?
Dealing with the IELTS examiner and their questions
I am really concerned about some of the issues in my Speaking Test. I don’t know what it’s gonna be.... There are few issues. Please have a look through my following points and give me a feedback as early as possible....
1. First of All, my examiner asks me about my university and she asks me that what changes do you think that the university authority should make a change to the University???
So, In reply I said that mam, I don’t think that there is any factor or issue on which university authority have to work because I think that it’s well decorated, the teachers are highly qualified and they provide us the best service.
So would it cause any kind of negative markings?? What do you think????
2. During the exam time, in part 2 that means in cue card I failed to provide all of the answers of the questions and that was also about some of the major issues... Oh God!! Because my examiner forced me to stop. I couldn’t complete. So what do you think????
3. During my Speaking Test, you know in part 3 she asked me a question and I answered that very confidently but during giving my answer she said that you are not giving the actual answer. So she wanted to go to the next questions. Then I said that- No, I can answer that and then she said No you can’t and you know there has created a horrible situation. And there also happened a little bit disconcerting situation. I don’t what would be in my result. Could you please give me an advice what it could be???
Your promptness in this regard will highly be appreciated......
