How long to speak on each question in part 3?
I have a question about Speaking part 3.
How long am I supposed to speak? Like 1 minute for question or less, 30-45 seconds?
Thanks in advance.
Can you speak about personal experiences in IELTS Speaking Part 3?
I had speaking test last weekend.
What worries me until now is that in Part 3 the interviewer clarified that I should speak in general coz I was always speaking based on my personal knowledge and experience.
Will it affect my score?
Another thing is that I know I had to expand my answer to get a band score of 7 but when I tried the interviewer didn't give me a chance to speak long coz he always had a question, one after another.
What if I could not answer the last question?
I took the speaking test a while ago. I did good in part 1 and part 2 but in part 3 I can't answer the last question because I was crying and I had 13 seconds left before the end of the exam.
Will it effect my score greatly?
Couldn't answer questions in part 3
by Bishwas Adhikari
Today was my IELTS speaking test. I always had one problem that I used to get stuck in Part 3 of speaking and same happened in test today. Part 1 and 2 really went well without any mistake.
But in part 3, I was not able to think answer because it was an specific question having specific answer but I failed to remember. She asked me nearly 4-6 questions in part 3 but I was able to answer only 3 correctly and for 2 or 3 questions I was really struggling.
What could be my score? Can I get 6? Because minimum score is 6 for masters study.
Please give me hope.
Problems in Part 3
by Ninad Singh

I just finished my speaking test a couple minutes ago. I did really well in the first two parts. My English was fine, I used good vocabulary, didn't take long pauses.
However, I didn't understand the part 3 questions since I wasn't aware of the term used 'Public Buildings'. Even though, I tried to answer all the questions in my own way. But, I don't think I did that great as compared to the previous parts.
Will my score get too affected because of it? I actually need 6.5 bands and I'm scared now.
Please clear my doubt.
Thanks in advance.
