IELTS exams in Nigeria and Bangladesh were identical, according to C and R (thanks for sharing!). Here is what we know:
Section 1. A phone conversation between a man who was looking for a school for his son and a woman.
Section 2. A man was talking to an academic counselor about taking courses.
Section 3. Different types of plant listed under Australian plants and where they should be planted in a garden. There was a diagram to fill in the location of the plants.
Section 4. Types of sports and different types of body build that help people perform better in each sport.
Passage 1. Behavioral pattern of chimpanzees and how their culture is learned.
Passage 2. An article on multitasking and its physical, mental and health implications.
Passage 3. A plant that is considered extinct (some acacia plant) and its origin in the legume family (usually grows as a weed). Rediscovered in 1972 by Stephen Smith.
Writing task 1 (a report)
There were 3 pie charts comparing the annual expenditure of students in countries A, B C on 5 broad categories, namely accommodation, food, books, leisure and other.
Writing Task 2 (an essay)
Few languages are increasingly spoken in different countries, while the usage of others is rapidly declining. Is this a positive or a negative development?
– What is your full name?
– What do you do, study or work?
– Where are you from?
Talk about a family that you liked to spend time with (other than your own family). You should say:
– who were they?
– why did you like to spend time with them?
– how did you meet them?
– Are you from a singe-parent or a joint family?
– Which sort of family attachment is better?
– Why do you think so?
