In IELTS listening (and to some extent in Reading too) not all the questions have the same level of difficulty. This is partly because the recordings and texts themselves usually become more difficult as the exam progresses, and partly because the questions themselves may become more demanding. It is like this because IELTS is not a pass/fail exam, so there are around fifteen easier questions for candidates who will score about Band 5, but the last five questions will be much more difficult to help distinguish between Band 8 and Band 9.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. B
2. A
3. one in four / 1 in 4 / 25%
4. India and China

Here's the full transcript:

Population growth affects the environment, jobs, housing, transport, roads and infrastructure: 22.7 million people growing at a rate of 1.6%. Every 2 minutes a baby is born, every 3 somebody dies, and during that time an extra person arrives from overseas. 37 people are added to our population every hour. Since fertility and mortality are difficult to change, some believe the answer lies in lowering migration, currently set at just over 168,000. History shows Australia has always been obsessed about population. Incredibly, 1 in 4 Australians was born overseas. Today, the biggest arrivals are from India, followed closely by the Chinese. Then, from across the Tasman are New Zealanders; in forth spot the British; and finally Koreans.
