IELTS test in Iran – February 2010 (Academic Module)

IELTS test in Iran (and Addis Abeba, Ethiopia) was collectively remembered and shared by M. and B., whom I am grateful to for the following information:

Section 2: An introduction, welcoming new students to a college in Australia.

Writing test

Writing task 1 (a report)
We had three pie charts about different types of favorite TV programs (cartoons, documentaries, dramas and two others), the data included three age groups.

Writing task 2 (an essay)
We were asked to write about the ‘throwaway society”. A throwaway society was defined as people that buy things, use them for a limited period of time and throw them away to be replaced by newer things. We were asked to mention why people do it, and what the implications of this are for the society as a whole.
