IELTS in Dubai, UAE – August 2009 (General Training)

IELTS in Dubai was remembered and shared by A, and all she asked in return was that we all pray for her to get a good result. And I think that’s not too much to ask! Here is what A remembered about the exam:

Listening test

Unfortunately here A didn’t remember much because the recording was very fast, to the extent that A got lost. The lesson she learned from that experience was that you need to really focus on the recording and not as much on the questionnaire, to listen well and follow the conversation and only then you will be able to answer correctly.

Reading test

A couldn’t remember the topics / questions, but she does remember one important thing – the last passage was the most difficult, and there was something else to make things harder. The questions were in the end of the booklet (apparently the passage was at the front) and she found it difficult to flip through the entire booklet every time to get to the answers, a lot of time was wasted on that.
