thanks alot for such a rapid and good response. so is that the reason why everybody is more inclined towards ielts instead of celpip-g. as on behalf of just one experience we cannot conclude things.
does anybody know any other thing about celpip-g. good or bad.

Hi CELPIP
I don´t recommend taking this test. When you look at the online samples, it seems easier then IELTS. That´s why I decided to take it instead of IELTS last year. I could only get 4/16 of points for immigration purpose. One week after getting my results, I took IELTS and got 12/16 points. I agree that results may vary from one person to another but for me the difference was significant.

please read requirements from CIC. IELTS is the recognized test, not CELPIP.

Anonymus, could you please explain why you think there was such a huge difference in the points you received for CELPIP and for IELTS?
I just did the CELPIP last weekend, and I found the Speaking part the hardest one, Listening the easiest.
Please, I would appreciate your answer because I am slightly panicking about it all. I can´t really afford to retake the exam the way you did.

Hi, I´m also new to to this site.

Are you still looking for the study material?
I have CELPIP study guide to sell.

I have taken CELPIP last month and I found out it was easier than IELTS, especially the listening.
I also found out that speaking was the hardest.

I agree that the result may vary a person to person.

I strongly reccomend you to practice speaking part according to the material or website material because they are very similar to actual test.

For writing part, I was running out of writing themes, so I made situations up and practiced. and it actually helped.

So I hope you do your best!
