How do the timings work on the day of the IELTS test?

by Lilosa

HELLO!

My question is:

In the beginning of the test, do I receive a booklet with the whole listening+reading+writing part at once? I mean, if i don't use the 60 minutes of the reading part, can I use the amount of time I have left, in the writing section?

Something else: on the writing section (task 2), if my time is almost up and my essay is still rather small, should I try to work on a longer third paragraph and try to reach 250 words, NOT writing a conclusion, or should I rush to write a conclusion and have an essay of about 210 words, let's say?

Looking forward to an answer!

If English is my first language am I exampt from the IELTS Test?

by Andrzej (poland)

Can some people get away with IELTS?

I know one guy from Africa and he told me that he does not need to take IELTS exam to go to uni because english is his first language.

In his country english is official language because it used to be english colony but definitely its not his first language.

Can i also say that english its my first language?(if he can do it).

Can we take different IELTS modules at different times?

by Prateek

Hi,

I have a query regarding the IELTS exam.
IELTS exam is composed of four parts namely reading, writing, listening and speaking.

I wanted to ask whether I will have to give all the exams at one go or I can schedule them one by one?

Also suppose if I score lesser band than expected then how soon can I re-do the same exam? Is there any limitation that you can only sit for the exam after certain number of days?

Please let me know at the earliest possible. Thanks in advance.

I look forward to hear from you soon.

Has anybody here taken the IELTS? I want to find out if the readings and the questions are on the same page, or does one have to be turning the pages to match the questions with the answers in the reading text?

Finger Scan in IELTS

by Newbee

Hello Folks!

I have a question about the test date. I have taken the test back in 2012 and now I am going to try again. At first time I am taking, I don't remember that they take my finger scan. Thus, If they took my finger-scan, I also don't remember which finger it was. So, this time, how I know/verify my previously scanned finger? Are they still storing it? I am left handed, I maybe gave my left index, but not sure. Please, if anybody knows/experienced this, let me know. Cheers and Thanks ;)

IDP India

by Pragya Sharma

India IDP team is very careless and doesn't think about students at all. I've requested IDP India team to provide me new test date, but it seems that they are least bothered about the future of any student, which is quite sad in case of such a big and recommended organization like IDP.

As from the day one after the registration there is no communication and mail from IDP India team to me, which clearly show that I was not in the list to the communication for the candidates.

Due to their negligence I didn't get mail regarding venue change and as a result of which I couldn't be able to reach there on time and the representative there accepted the mistake and told me to put mail to IDP India team so that they can correct their mistake and provide me new date.

Unfortunately they are continuing their negligence in my case, even after 5 days I didn't receive any mail from their end as well as no declaration regarding new test date. I hope to get positive response from your end, so that student like me won’t have to compromise with their future.

Reputation of the IELTS Exam

by Yaser Esmaeilzadeh Chenijani
(London)

I feel that IELTS has made it really difficult for the examinees to get a high band score in writing. But you should know that this trend will finally damage the reputation of IELTS and Many organisations will finally abandon this exam. It seems IELTS only wants to take advantage of the desperate people who need a specific mark. You are the losers at the end of the day, however.

by ss123

Hi there,

I am planning to take IELTS exam in Chennai. Could you please suggest which is better - British Council Center at Anna Nagar or IDP Center at Chetpet. I know IELTS standard and questions will be the same, irrespective of which test center I choose.

Just want to know from administration point of view and also regarding how strict/leniently is the speaking section scored. Thanks.

Forgot to Indicate Test Choice

by Evan G
(Kiev)

I had my exam today, everything went well, however, when I came home I realized that I might have forgotten to shade in the little box on the reading and writing answer sheet which says I am taking a General IELTS test.

I must say that I am not a 100% sure that I forgot, but it still terrifies me.

Now I am restless and afraid that my exam will not be marked or will be disqualified.

Can something be done? Can I call them? or this little box does not matter?

would appreciate any feedback.

Order of the IELTS modules during the test

by Musat

When entering IELTS paper based test, do they give you all booklets of listening, writing and reading at the same time and you decide how much time you will spend on each or do they give you each of the skills one by one with a time limit each.
