Default Just got IELTS results!!!

Test Name - IELTS Test Taken - July 19/2002 Centre - Mumbai, India Type - General
Training Conducting Institution - The British Council Test Length - Listening (60
mins), Reading (60 mins), Writing (60 mins.) and Speaking - (about 15-20 mins)

Scores Obtained -

Listening - 8.5 Reading - 8.5 Writing - 8.0 Speaking - 9.0

Overall - 8.5

Personal Experience Very pleasant and easy.

I was unfortunate to be seated very far away from the cassette player and this made
me a little apprehensive about whether I would be able to hear evrything clearly. As
it turned out it wasnt a problem.

The writing section went off really well and I was expecting 8.5 at least but I guess
they didn't like my handwriting too much . 1 letter (150 words minimum) and 1 essay
(250 words minimum). The essay topic was a bit vague but nonetheless extremely

Reading was a bit confusing as some of the multiple choice answers seemed all
correct. My advice is go well prepared and refer to as many sources as possible
including books and reference material. YOU HAVE TO BE FAMILIAR WITH THE QUESTION
TYPES TO CRACK THIS. Also, pay close attention to the instructions, especially those
that ask you to limit your answer to THREE WORDS OR LESS.

Speaking was a breeze. What possibly worked in my favour was that I have been
speaking English all my life even though it is not my native language. I think it is
important to impress that on the examiner straightaway if this is the case.

The Test is therefore is highly recommended for serious immigration attemptees and
will definitely rule out all subjectivity as far as English language proficiency is

Thats another 16 under the belt !!!

I'm on my way guys.
