Update from a General IELTS exam, India

Thanks to Chikur from India I can share with you this update, enjoy!

Listening test:

The only thing I remember – it was too fast. I had to sneeze and missed 2 answers!


Reading was a bit tough this time. In the General Training IELTS, the first 20 questions are usually easy. But this time I found the first 10
questions about a long passage. Actually that passage was all about “answers” and we were supposed to match the “questions” to them, so it took longer. Two more reading passages came with questions of True/False/Not Given type and I had to fill in the gaps in a summary.

Writing test

Writing Task 1 (a letter)

Write a letter to a college Principal, where you attended a one day computer course and are unhappy about the way it was conducted. Explain what was the type of the course, what happened and what can be done to make sure this problem never occurs again.
