This was my first time taking the IELTS, and I think I messed it up. When there was 20 mins left, I was about to close my essay and suddenly I realized that my essay was not long enough to meet the number of words require. I lacked of approximately 50 words! (That is one paragraph!!) ????
I opted to further expand the ideas I had and add one more paragraph at the latter part of the essay, but unfortunately, I panicked and could not think of anything at all for 5mins! By then, I decided to just proofread the essay I constructed and now I am worrying how much penalty would I get. ..
Speaking was a mess. I think I have answered questions differently the way the examiner is expecting.. For instance, I told him discussion and talk is the same and then his eyes widely opened (as if giving me a hint my answer is wrong).. The silly part was I took my words back and rationalized my stand and speak more as I could.
Still hoping for better results though..
