Update from a General IELTS exam, India

This is what our friend R. from India has shared about his General Training IELTS exam.
IELTS test in India

Listening test

It was okay, I scored 7.5

Reading test

I thought I did pretty well but I only got 6. I usually scores very well in all the exercises I did prior to this exam. I still don’t know how this is possible.

Writing test

Writing Task 1 (a letter)

Write a letter of recommendation for a friend who submitted his resume to a tourist office.

Writing Task 2 (an essay)

Advertising influences people to buy thing such as clothes and shoes. What are the problems caused by advertising? What solutions can be offered?

I scored 6.5 on this task here – again I don’t know where I went wrong, the topic is quite simple.

Speaking test

Cue Card

Describe a useful piece of equipment other than a computer. Please say:
– Where it is used,
– How it works,
– How it benefits you.

In the Speaking I scored 7. Never mind that the examiner was falling asleep 🙂
