Hi, I'm going to take IELTS, academic version on March 1 in Canada. Since this is my first time, I will really appreciate any advice. I've heard that the topics in Writing part can be repeated. Is it true? Can they give the same topics two times in a row? Thank you.
Kova, since you have written in Canada,can you give any advice?

i from Bangladesh.Any idea about Bangladeshi IELTS question?

Rita, I have no idea. It was my first time as well. I tried to follow eastern topics but it seems that Canada is not covering the some ones. I cannot believe that no one got the same test as we did. Even the reading and listening for my academic test were different.
Where are you taking the test?Which city?

Hi Rita, I have no idea. It was my first time as well. I tried to follow eastern topics but it seems that Canada is the only one with different academic test. I cannot believe that nobody got the same topics as we did. Even the reading and listening were different. Where are you taking the test ? Which city?

I'm taking it in Toronto. My biggest concern is the writing part. How about you where did you write the test?

plz share listening answers abt map questions on 22/02/14

I did it in Edmonton. For writing I did first task 2, since it is worth more. I haven`t get enough time to finish task 1,and don`t know how it`s gonna affect my score. I`ll see in 2 weeks.

Hello Kova,

How are things going?

Could you write down your ideas about this essay?

task 2: In the past, we used books for keeping knowledge, now internes. advantages and disadvantages.

Have a good one.

Hi. At the academic exam Listening on 22/02/14 was terrible. Voice wasn't clear. Nobody could understand anything. From ielts center they said that it is from disc. What can I do? :( it is their fault not our :(

@Moon where? In Azerbaijan? I took exam in Azerbaijan on 22 february.and i couldn't write listening :( voice was very bad. I think the problem was at headphones. I didn't understand anything. Generally I write 7.0-7.5 from listening,but in this exam it might be 6.0 or lower ((

@Senan yes,I also took in Azerbaijan.

hi all i booked my exam 15 march and i need speaking questions and GT writing topics as well please thank you all

Hi JuanM, I made a mistake in the topic, internet instead of internes.
In the first paragraph I described advantages of internet keeping ( convenient,save place in libraries, in school kids doesn`t have to carry all their books, just a computer...)
Second parag. I used for disadvantages (electronic data are more sensitive, books preserve information better..and example)
In intro and concl. I gave my opinion in favor of using books.

Kova,good luck!!! Do you know whether your question (writing)appeared in previous exams?

Thanks Koda.
I appreciate the information which you gave me. Good call!.


There are various benefits and drawbakes of books to get information.the main pron is that handy and convenient as well as cheaper.secondly;it provides in depth knowledge of any subject.finally;it describes authentic information.however,it sometime is time consuming to read.for example, we frenquently have to turn all pages to complete book for getting knowledge...
There are numerous benefits n drawbacks of internet for knowing knowledge.the prime advantage is that it is an oscen of information.another positive outcome is that only by kicking a finger,one can search any information on any topic of any subject with in few addition , it is less time consuming.0n the other hand,some websites except Google and wikipedia dont depict reliable information as this such websites can easily be manipulated and we can't put our fingers on mouse to get information for enhancing our know ledges.

The worst IELTS exam was seen in 22 February in 2014 in GRBS in Azerbaijan because of listening

Hey Kova..

you took the IELTS exam last Feb 22 in Canada, right?
Do you think the topics were the same for the upcoming IELTS exam on March 1st? or they will give another topic?

-Hi Rita, it was my first time and don`t know anything about previous topics.
- You`re welcome JuanM
- Angelyn, yes it was AT, Feb 22. I`m not sure whether they are gonna use the same topic. There is nobody here to confirm if they had the same topics as I did. You could prepare this topic just in case, but I believe that they are change the topic every week. ANd we didn`t have any problem with listening, they even asked us if the volume is fine and adjusted it.The quality of CD was fine.

Sound quality was terrible in listening part in Turkey., like under water.We did not hear anything. It is their fault and unfortunately this will effect our score:/


Please find out the difference between "effect" and "affect" then complain about the sound quality.


Hello Ece. Before the listening test begins, they check the sound quality and the volume.
Did they do that? If the answer is yes, what happened next?



I'm going to take GT on Mar 8 in Hyderabad. Any suggestions about exam? what will be the expected schedule data for speaking ?

I also encounter with sound problem.They checked sound and said that problem is in the CD in Azerbaijan.

Hi Simon
Hello All

In listening section some questions require two words for correct answer. How can i know to which question i have to go with two words?
e.g 1) if i write "record" then its wrong and the correct answer is "record yourself."

Please note that answer limit was three words.

Someone please help me. I have my exam in a couple of days. May God bless you.

Hello Kumar,

I am stuck in 6.5 (W/S) in my last two attempts.
Could you give me an advice to up my score in the GT?

@Kill-ielts.... Hope you are trying for Australian immigration as you mentioned you required 7 in each band..Well am trying for the same... Let me know so that we could help each other further too...



Well, 6.5 to 7 in writing means you are not too far but you do some silly mistakes or you dont do some simple tips for getting a band 7.

The best approach would be to analyze your writing first then comment. If you could send me out an email to me at , we will take it up from there.. I will try my level best to help you out. Also lemme know when you are trying your next attempt?


Hi I recently graduated from Australia .now as per rules I need 7 each to apply for permanent residency.i m looking fwd to gv ielts on 15 anyone else on the same boat???

I appeared for IELTS-GT 15 Feb 2014 in Riyadh via British Council and my result is as below:

Listening : 9
Reading : 9
Writing : 6.5
Speaking : 6.5

What i need is 7 band each for AUS immigration, i need your tips to get to band 7 level in W/S.

Hi all,

I gave my IELTS Speaking exam today. I asked about Town I live. Describing about it, Why i like living there?,

2 minutes topic was about TV series i like to repeat again,
What is it about?
What is it that you like the most?

General discussion was about photography, What kinda pictures you click? what you like the most about those pictures? do you read newspapers? Why you read them?
Advertisement? Why some people like it? why some hate it?

That's all I remember.

To anybody from Australia please post your writing questions. That will be great help.

Thanks in advance and all the best everybody.

@ kumar

And most important topics as well.


Hi Kumar,
Many thanks for your generous help.
I had my first exam at 1th of Feb i got 6.5 for general writing. Funny thing is that i sat on 15th of Feb for the same exam and i got 5.5. So crazy. Now i m so confuse what was wrong! I was just doubtful about the length of writing which was not 250 words.
I desperately need 7,7,7,7 for immigration. At the moment, I m in Australia and i had my exam with idp. I m to somehow alright with other skills. Just need to improve this writing within 2weeks. Please help me.

@ kumar

My email address is

Please help me.


First of all you seem to be confused about this whole thing. I would first advice you to keep your mind calm and be relaxed. I prepared only 10 days for the exam. When i first did my analysis my score in reading was 6 and listening was 6.5. I was shocked to see the score, but later i understood what i thought was the correct way to deal the questions was totally wrong. And now i ended up in 8.5 and 8. Anywayz am helping out 10 to 15 gyz online , so if you could email me, it would be better to know your skills and then help you out personally. My email :


my speaking topic today

Describe a garden or park you enjoyed visiting.
You should say:
where it was

what you did (or, were doing) there [or, what people were doing there]

hi Simon and all ielts-takers,

I have been a silent user of this useful and informative site but today after receiving my ielts result i could'nt stop myself from posting a comment.

Like many other candidates i needed 7 band in all domains. I was desperate to achieve this band score so that i can apply for my pharmacy registration.I had taken 3 academic ielts exam before and this was my 4th time,the results for all 3 tests were as follows:

1st time: L 6.5, R 7.5, W 7.5, S 8
2nd time: L 7.5, R 7.5, W 6.5, S 7.5
3rd time: L 8.5, R 8.5, W 6.5, S 8

I thought i was unlucky because i always lagged behind by only 0.5 band, however, deep down i knew that i can achieve it, but how??? This was the question i use to ask to myself. And then somehow I came across this site and when i started using it all the unseen ties in my brain were opened.

I took my test in the U.K (academic module)on 15 feb after reading all the tips from Simon, and thankfully i have passed my exam. Although not with flying colors, i have got the reasonable band score which is as follows:

4th time after spending £600(altogether):
L 7.5, R 7.5, W 7, S 7

I'd like to thanks SIMON from the deepest core of my heart for helping all of us in achieving our desire scores and taking time out to maintain and update this site with useful information, this site has bought all the ielts candidates all over the world on one platform to be friends with and to share and help each other in useful ways.

My message to all the ielts-test takers who are still trying is that go thorugh this website thoroughly and try to grasp every little tip which is given by Simon, you can try and incorporate these at the time of test , i'll be more than happy to help anyone who need my assistance.

Thanks alot Simons, God bless you.
And good luck all test- takers there will be a day which will be yours, don't give up keep working hard you'll get it one day. Believe me all you need is strong determination and positive outlook.
