My IELTS Experience in Singapore

March 23, 2016, IELTS Speaking Test

I gave the IELTS Speaking test at the British Council, Napier Road. The test was conducted by an old man probably in the late 70s. He introduced himself and then asked the first question about where my hometown was. And then questions like, Do I prefer combined study/work?

Advantages & Disadvantages of combined study/work.

I was asked to talk about a man I admire the most and why I admire that person. I was not happy with the way I answered, but I tried my best.

Which was the favorite book in my young age? How often I read books? What are the problems faced by young generation in the modern work life? Is it good for the younger generation to earn a higher income than the older generation? Would I like to settle in a countryside or a city in the old age? Which group of people earn less income in my country? Which industry pays good salary? How is the working condition of the construction workers?

March 19th, 2016, IELTS Reading, Writing, Listening test

For the Writing test, I had to write a letter to the airlines management complaining about a bad experience with an airline crew.

The second essay was about my views on the modernization, whether heritage cities should be upgraded with new technologies or should it be preserved?

1st April 2016

I got the test results today and found that I scored:

I was expecting a higher score in writing, reading, and listening and a lower score in speaking, but it’s just opposite :)
