The answers are given on the last page, but try not to look at them until you've done the exercise.

Thanks Simon:) This took me back to when I first did that test on Cambridge IELTS Book 3 a helluva long time ago. Still, this is one of the best instances of matching questions for a reading class. Another similar set of matching questions is in the first reading in book 8 (the one about keeping time). I also like the one in book 7 -in the passage on European forests. A bit more difficult but seriously worth the effort:)

Hi Simon, I have a question. In the speaking test, how does the IELTS administration decide which candidate speaks first and which speaks last. Unfortunately when i took the test last time i happened to be the unlucky last and the examiner seemed a bit restive. i am going to book another again and i dont want to be the very last candidate, so do you think by booking a couple of weeks earlier would help me?
You blog is impressive and full of gems! Keep up the good work!

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:
I think I answered your question on Facebook.
I suppose you would need to do those 4 questions in about 7 minutes or less.
I agree Ebi. Those are all useful ones to practise.
I'm afraid that's a question I can't answer. I don't know how they decide which order student go in. Maybe you could ask at your test centre. I'll try to find out too.
I'm afraid I can't tell you why that's happening - I would need to work with you to see what you are doing wrong. Maybe you should take a few lessons with a private teacher who can analyse your mistakes.
