IELTS exam in Singapore – January 2009 (Academic Module)

This is what our friend L from Singapore remembers about his IELTS exam:

Listening test

Section 1 was about inquiring about an IT show.
Section 2 was a Quarantine questionnaire.
Section 3 had questions related to Section 2 (Quarantine Questionnaire).
Section 4 was about engineering design.

Reading test

The first passage was tougher than the other two.

(Simone says: Pay attention, guys – the previous update said the same. Maybe they have changed the order of the texts and now they don’t progress in difficulty!)

Writing test

Task 1 (report)
Write a report describing a bar chart that shows the percentage of female workers in directors’ level from year 1990 to 2005.
