Our kind friend A has shared the writing and speaking sections of his IELTS exam in Australia. Here is what he remembered:
Writing task 1 (a letter)
Write a letter to the manager of your local bus service. They have recently made some changes to the bus services, which create an inconvenience for you. In your letter explain
– What are the changes?
– What are the problems you are facing?
– What would you like to change in this service?
Writing Task 2 (an essay)

– How much time do you spend with your family and friends?
– What do you like about computers?
– What do you do in your free time?
