HI, everyone!

I had my exam yesterday, on 12th of April !

Thank God! The task one was the bar chart. And the task 2 was about ambition.

The examiner I came across in the section of speaking was quite serious and cold, and he never showed a smille ( except when I said ' couch tomato', he laughed. Oh my god, I misrememberred the slang ), while the first examiner I met on January was super nice and kind, who told me to take a deep breath and shaked my hand and smiled all the time.

Anyway, I hope I can get a good mark this time. Bless me!

Sounds like you cheered him up with your couch tomato!  He's probably still thinking about it!

Fingers crossed for a good result in two weeks.

Hey guys,

I took the Ielts test yesterday (academic module). I'm now waiting for the results and preparing for another test simultaneously (maybe I'll need to take another).

The listening and reading session was fine, but I did not perform well in speaking and writing.The writing task 1 was about describing maps which I did not prepare for.

I'm going to upload my score here once I receive.

Well done Tommy and good luck!

Take a few days off. You’ve been following this forum for a long time and you need a rest! Thanks for all your contributions and help

That’s a shame about Task 1. Many students concentrate on graphs, but Task 1 can be about any visual data -  graphs, charts, tables, a map, maps over time, a process, a cycle, a diagram, a flowchart, or even an infographic (although I haven’t seen one of  those yet).  Graphs are coming less often.

Still, it’s less important than Task 2 in terms of marks.  Let’s hope for a friendly examiner and a better score than you fear!
