Hi Atul.First I need to thank you. Thanks a lot for creating an amazing website. I have given IELTS test for the very first time and I have recently completed my secondary education.
My speaking was on 6 Oct. 2016.
It lasts for just 9 to 11 minutes. I am really worried that why it was so short .
Part 1:Examiner asked me questions about myself.
A. Are you a student?
B.Future plan
C. My major
Then she asked me questions about bag.
A. Do you carry bags? Why/why not?
B. How many bags do you have?
And she also asked me about my family.
A. Importance of a family
And two questions more. I forgot. Sorry:-)
She was very polite and I was feeling comfortable.
Written exam was on 8 Oct. 2016.
I think it was very easy.
Overall, listening was easy and simple especially section 1 and 4. Sections 2 and 3 were quite easy.May be only I think so.
38 questions were so easy to locate and answer but 2 questions were complex.
Reading: My strength.
I completed reading in just 29 minutes and then I checked my answers again and again.
1 passage was about noise pollution
2 passage was about roller coaster ( history and all that)
3 passage was related to a subject of biology.
Overall, all passages were easy and during my practice tests at home I used to score 8 , 8.5 or 9 in listening and reading.
Task 1: Never seen such an easy bar graph.It was simple
Task 2: Some people think university edu. is imp. for success while others disagree.Discuss both views and give your opinion.
In BP1, I explained first view. I gave only one reason and supported it with an example.I didn’t give so many reasons.
BP2: I supported my view that it is not always necessary.Again I gave 1 reason and developed my view with an example.
I mean to say I gave two reasons and two examples. Now its all on luck.
Yes, I forgot to tell you from where I am.
I am from Punjab, Northern State of India.
And my result shall be declared tomorrow.Fingers crossed.
