This is what our friend T from Ireland remembers about his IELTS exam – thanks, T!
IELTS test in Ireland
Listening

The listening test was not difficult as I thought it would be. There were four sections:
1) The first was regarding a filling a form.
2) Section two was to fill a map.
3) Third was a conversation
4) The final section was a speech given in a university.

Reading

The reading paper was a bit different from what I expected.
1) The first section was to write true or false.
2) The second section was regarding a description of five buildings The task was to match a sentence with a passage.
3) Third was to write answers
4) The fourth, a bit difficult, was regarding New Zealand’s natural power resources. The questions were bases on selecting the correct answer, matching the names of persons relating to the statements from the passages. It was not too difficult but you had to know the passage very well to answers the questions.

Writing

Task 1 (Letter)
Write a complaint letter about an incident that happened in the airport.

Task 2 (Essay)
The essay was regarding the old people, what is the better way for old people to live, with their family or separately or with the same old aged people.

The IELTS-blog helped me a lot with my writing. The sample essays gave me a good idea how to build up my ideas. As I mentioned before I am not good in my writing. The only problem was how to plan out the structure. But after I read what other people had written, it helped to me to think and to write.
