What to expect on the ielts exam day

  1. 1. JRooz Review Center Inc. http://www.jroozreview.com What to Expect on the IELTS Exam Day Knowing what to do on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination makes the candidate for the test feel relaxed and comfortable. Indeed, being familiar with the flow of the test helps the candidate condition his or her mind on what to expect in the course of the examination. Let us see what things the candidates should expect on the IELTS Exam. The IELTS Sections Every candidate for the IELTS is aware that there are four sections in the IELTS examination. Once you are scheduled for the examination here in the Philippines, you are to expect that the speaking section is done a couple of days before the other sections. The other sections are usually scheduled on a Saturday. The speaking section takes about ten to fifteen minutes to be completed. The other set of tests include the listening, reading and writing. The listening section can be completed within 30 minutes where you, the candidate for the test, have to complete four sections in the test. After the listening test, the reading assessment follows. You are given an hour to finish 40 questions on the reading section. And finally, the writing examination which takes about an hour to finish is the last section of the test. Two tasks are to be completed. You have to remember that the reading and the writing sections differ when you take the Academic or the General Training exams of the IELTS.
