I failed to speak more than 1.5 min on part 2. Will it affect my band score?
I failed to speak more than 1.5 min on part 2. will it affect my band score? Rest was quite normal.
I didn't do well in the speaking test - Can I still get a band 5?
Unfortunately I didn't do parts 2 and 3 well. I answered all the questions in part one but spoke for one minute in part 2 and could answer only 3 questions out of 6 in part 3.
Can I hope for 5?
Will finishing before the two minutes in part 2 of the speaking test affect my score?
On the second part of my IELTS speaking test, i finished before she told me to stop. i have spent around 1.30 seconds.
Until then my speech was fluent. She asked me to continue but finally after two sentences she told me to stop, no extra time.
The fact that i finished before the two minutes will affect a lot my grade?
I didn't speak at all in part 2 in speaking
I didn't speak at all in part 2 in speaking. How bad can that effect my score?
Did I speak enough in IELTS Speaking Part 2?
by anarov orkhan
I had a speaking exam 3rd july. I want to know what if I failed to speak more in 2nd part.
He asked me to speak about a thing that I want to buy in the future. I told him just about a red Ferrari because its my childhood dream. I collected its pics from chewing gums. I prefer it because of speed and comfort.
I just don't know what to say more and talk around all these stuffs. There was a silence approximately 3-5 seconds. Then he asked me questions from 3rd part.
I just wonder what do u think?
My IELTS Speaking Test Experience
by mazhar bilal
British Council IELTS: Speaking issue!
Hope all of you are fine.
I appeared in speaking test today.
The first section (short run) goes well.
Then comes the second section (long turn) and I am really disappointed from my performance. I speak only 1 min. and then stopped.
My mind was all blank and I think examiner was expecting me to speak more. However, I think the topic assigned to me was a bit difficult:
"what positive thing u have learned from your family member?"
Will stopping while speaking be penalised or not.
The third section (cross questioning) also goes well.
can I get an IELTS band 6? I only spoke for 1 minute in part 2.
Will it be easy for me to get 6 bands in speaking?
I do part 1 and part 2 pretty well but I only speak for about 1 min in part 2
I make few grammatical errors.
Is my IELTS speaking band 6 because I could not speak for 2 minutes?
I have given IELTS academic test 2 times and have scored 6 and 6.5 in my speaking.
I remember that in both the exams I was short on my cue card topic.
What I can recollect is that the test in which I got 6, I finished my topic much earlier and examiner was still waiting for me to go on talking which I tried after a long pause in a very nervous state.
My other sections were fine except that I fumbled at places and repeated few phrases.
My target score is 7 in each section.
Could you tell me the reason for my poor score in speaking? Is it because I could not speak for 2 min?
I only covered one of the points in the IELTS speaking part 2. Is this a problem?
(montreal, quebec, canada)
I just finished my speaking test today.
I feel horrible about my part two because i didn't have time to cover all the 3-4 questions, in fact i was still at question 1 when the evaluator stopped me!!!
I am fluent in english and I heard that It's good to elaborate my answers in this test, but I didn't know how short 2 minutes can be!
I was horrified when the evaluator told me my time was up, OH GOSH i really need a 7 for my speaking and i don't have time to retake this exam because my application for my visa will expire this month.
HOW much do i get penalized if i only covered 1/3 of the questions in part 2? Can someone give me an idea? Should I book for the re-test right now??
Please help - I'm worried about two things that happened in the speaking test.
pls. I just had my speaking test last Sunday. On the 2nd part, she had to tell me that I should speak more. Pls, what did that imply. Secondly, she kept scribbling figures which were on 3 columns. Any idea what that meant? Because, I saw the marks of people before me. Was @ tenterhooks.

Hi while speaking I couldn’t speak for 2 minutes on the given topic then the examiner pointed on one of the topic in the paper and asked me to speak on that and then completed the task will it affect my score
