I would like to share my experience of IELTS at ChongQing by british council.
To start with we got a listening test with cordless headphones, we were all told to test the headphones and properly hear the demo music going on.
The listening part was easy for me, as compared to samples in Insight into Ielts. I could get all the conversationhow many answers I dont know
《insight into ielts》是剑桥大学出版的一本解析书，很有针对性，貌似已经出2了。
Then the reading part
This was sort of tricky , it consisted to 3 part as usual. But as compared to normal one series of questions where we have to match the para headings we gor 2 of these. So out of 40 total , 12 questions were only match the paras in the texts with the headings, I comparatively hate such tasks. Thugh I believe that I did them well. And yes I called this part tricky as the first excercise was most difficult and time consuming as compared to rest 2.
Then the writing part
we had two parts
1st waswrite a 150 words on a diagram which showed a river flow
The river flow was marked as fast at the start and slow at the end , A delta was visible at the end marked as sea.
Attached to this diagram were two sub illustrations which showed that pollutants were in flow in faster moving river and settle down in slow moving end of river. Also farming pollutants were shown to be used as food by river bed plants
2ndwrite 250 words on
Some schools give admission solely on basis of academic ability, while others believe that this should not be a criteria.
I have messed up with the essay title some what but its meaning remained the same.
Now writing was comparatively bad then other modules on the first day. The next day we were called for speaking
SpeakingThis is where I am really worried : the examiner was from some western country,
I made these mistakes
1) Spoke slowly, She asked me to speak loudly. Also with this she put the tape recorder more near to me. I wish she dosent apply a penalty for that
2) I paused for a second or 2 at the max in my long turn
3) When the last series was going on I had to ask her to repeat a question
Rest all questions I, in my opinion answered well and with long good justifiable answers. I could apeak fluently, backup my thoughts and maintain some eye contact.
There were questions like
1) Describe a happy person, why is he / she happy
2) How do you relax
3) Do people relax often these days.
Hope you all pray for me and I pass.
congrats rhonda , you got a good score!!
