Thanks Harp,

How does the test center affect the test...dont´t they have standard procedures for conducting the test.

Have only done specimen materials for preparation. Let´s hope it is sufficient.

any comments would be appreciated !!

Location (in reply to: IELTS ADVISE)
Hi SK
It is different as I have talked to friends who have takend IELTS in India , I took it in canada .
some other in Usa . if the location is in a busy and crowded place ther is a chance oyu get idsturbed during the listening , similarly during the reading if u get to sit at the end of the test room u might not be able to concentrates as much as the person in the first row .
you speaking skills ofcourse depends on ur back ground and who takes it on ur test date .

Listening: Don?t get nervous if you miss a word. They?ll forgive a few mistakes. Try to predict the answer and listen carefully; if you missed anything, have a guess.

Reading: Be very careful, they assess very strictly. Also be careful with your spelling.

Writing: Stick exactly to the topic and the instructions and questions. You?ll get one third of your mark only for targeting the topic and not writing nice stuff about anything else. In addition, write clearly, neatly and with clear paragraphing so that your letter and essay are easy to understand and clearly structurized. This will secure you another third of the mark. Use some sentences that are typical for official letters if you have to write one, like: I look forward to hearing from you soon. Use some expressions that you often hear in the media and are related to your topic in the essay. Try to express your opinion or statement stright away and exactly. Don?t write too long sentences.

Speaking: Always remember that this is not a knowledge test. So, if you don?t know the answer of a question, you can state this or imagine something else, just keep talking. Try to relax, look at the interviewer while talking, don?t be shy. You show problem management skills when you ask for clearance or correct yourself after a mistake, so do so if necessary - but try to avoid to ask for repetition in the first and easiest part of the interview. If you haven?t practised yet, do some mini-presentations, speaking about a topic like your first teacher or a local event for one to two minutes and focus on time-management.

Also be careful with the time-management in writing: 20 min for the letter and 40 min for the essay.
In reading, read the next questions in advance when you have time to check your answers during the test. You?ll have enough time to check your answers when you transfer the answers to the answer sheet.

Good luck!

If you r a new applicant, you have enough time time to get a good score IELTS. I had applied last month to the London office and recieved AOR that states that i am in a queue and the processing of my application will take somewhere about 45 months.

Good time 2 get a PhD in English literature!
