Hi, I'm Liz. Welcome to my IELTS tips, model answers and practice

Why would part 3 make you angry? One of your main tasks in preparing for IELTS is to develop ideas for topics. This is so you can speak easily on different topics and express your thoughts. Even if your own language, if you don’t know the topic, you can still express yourself – your language doesn’t cease or fail. So, practice ideas for different topics and practice getting in and out of questions depending on how many ideas you have. See the main speaking page:

There are two primary ways to organize your compare and contrast paper.

Chunking: placing all of the information for each individual subject in one place (chunk), and then using similarities as transitions.

It is highly unlikely that you will get an increase in more than one area of your test from remarking. Listening and reading scores very rarely change from remarking as the scores are based on right or wrong answers rather than examiner interpretation. It looks like you might have to take the test again. A low score can happen if you are unlucky in the test with topics and questions. But even so, make sure you score higher in practice tests before you book another real IELTS test.

Hi Liz,
Got my results today. The overall score is 6.5, with individual scores as follows:
L=6.5, R=7.0, W=6.5, S=5.5
The scores are not up to my expectations. As pointed out earlier my speaking task was a disaster, so a score of 5.5 in speaking task is as expected. But the reading and listening scores are not matching my expectations, it’s far below than what I had been expecting( esp. the score in the listening task).
Is there anything I could do now? Should I opt for re-evaluation?

Hai Liz…could you please correct my essay if i posted it here ..?

It will affect your score for fluency mostly because you didn’t show the ability to speak at length. The cue card contains prompts which are only guidelines and not questions to be answered. You are free to add any kind of information, story, description or detail to your talk to lengthen it – there is no such thing as going off topic in part 2 speaking. But if you did well on the other parts and other marking criteria, hopefully you can still get a reasonable score. Let me know what happens. I’ll keep my fingers crossed! 🙂

Sorry I don’t comment on writing.

A clear position means that you maintain your opinion through the whole essay and don’t suddenly change your position in the conclusion. That is for any question that requires your opinion. A clear progression is of ideas – order, linking etc. Less common items are those you might learn at intermediate or upper intermediate level – they are higher level. Common items are those used eveyday which are common to pre-intermediate levels and lower. To get band 7 people should be used complex sentences – the odd simple one might be ok but certain not a balanced of complex and simple.
