I had my test yesterday, on the 7th of May in Kazakhstan (Aktau).I was really difficult, I didin’t expect. I was preparing for about 2 months. I study and work at the same time, that’s why maybe my preparation wasn’t so well.
The most difficult part was reading. I didn’t follow the time and I didn’t fill at least 5 answers
Writing was hard as well. My topic was “How do you think, the government should support post graduaters who deal with scientific research or whether it better to invest on other subjects?” I don’t think it is an easy one. Why they take such tough themes? I can’t even write on Kazakh, because I’m not familiar with scientific research, to be honest. I think IELTS should give common topics, everyone is able to write and explain. I don’t think my English is bad, I just wasn’t quite aware what to write.
Speaking part was the easiest, beause I’m fluent speaker. Part 2 “What did you buy (thing)? Why did you buy and where?” Part 3 was not easy, because it was about marketing. F.ex. How marketing influemce on goods and so on.
Generally, I’m dissappointed with IELTS examination. Because it’s not the real showing of english skills, it’s about your general knowledge. But what if I’m not such clever, but my skills are perfect?
Anyway, thanks Atul, your tips were helpful
