Hello Sir, I'm a silent reader of this website. I really appreciate your efforts, the way you expained the things and your tips are awesome. I would like to tell you that it was my speaking test today. I was very confident before the exam but the examiner was an old lady. She is so irritating and arrogant. She was scolding me by showing me eyes. I really didn't expected this kind of behavior with the student. During the test I didn't get one question and I requested her to speak the question again and she became so angry about it. I seems to me like she was not interested in taking my exam at all. Now I don't know she's going to give me good bands or not. What can I do about it sir? She degraded me alot during the test by making so many expressions. I'm really worried about my result 😞

- the right frame of mind = the right mindset
- think about = ask yourself
- synthesise = structure
- timetable = study time

Neha,

I remember a very similar comment from another student, and when she got her results they were much better than she expected. Some examiners seem unfriendly but they still give fair and correct scores.

If you have to take the exam again, please ignore the examiner's body language and focus on your own performance only!

Be in the right frame of mind = Being in the right mindset (ii)

Where you study is key = a place with a lot of distractions makes for a poor study area (v)

Study tools = whether a computer or the old-fashioned paper and pen or pencil (i)

Summarise and synthesise ideas = boil information down to its most basic components and connecting similar concepts together (vii)

Stick to a timetable = schedule study time just as your class time is scheduled (iv)

My answer is:
A I
(Being in the right frame of mind is important in order to study smarter)
B V
(the sentence topic is the first sentence)
C I
(So ask yourself whether you really need a computer to take notes, or whether you can make do with the old-fashioned paper, pen, or pencil)
D VII
(The importanrt thing to remember in writing outlines is that an outline only word as a learning tool when it is in your own words and structure.)
E IV
(if you schedule study time just as your class time is scheduled, you'll find it becomes much less of a hassle in the long run.)

Hi Simon,

Got a question to ask. I have taken IELTS multiple times and I have a feeling the level of difficulty in reading part varies. Some tests were really easy but others were fairly difficult.

So my question is, to ensure fairness, would IELTS lower marking critier when the reading is more difficult?

Thanks!

Hi Yuchao,

Yes, they test the level of difficulty very carefully, and the band score boundaries are changed accordingly. So, if it's a difficult passage, you will require fewer points.
