It is a good idea to take some water with you and drik if you cough. Then' apologise to your examiner and continue with your task.

In General writing task 1: try to find the reason why you are writing the letter. Break your questions and note the key points. It will help you elaborate on your letter. See if the letter is formal or informal. This will help you to maintain the tone in your letter. Lastly focus on linking words which will help you in the continuity of paragraph.
Academic Task 1 - is about graphs, maps, bar charts, table, pie charts - so practising more of such sample letters will help you improve your score.

It depends on the question. If the content word is cattle only, there is nothing to worry. But if the answer is specifically young cattle, you stand to lose. However, it is not very important in listening.

As we all know, IELTS results are given on a nine-band scale and scoring 6 means there are inaccuracies, misunderstandings and inappropriacies. Writing section is marked on four criteria, i.e., Task achievements, Lexical resource, Coherence and cohesion, and Grammatical range and accuracy. So, here are a few simple tips for you to follow.

 

1. Understand the question asked by the interviewer. It's not going to help you if you don't answer accordingly. Keep to the topic, avoid writing anything about unrelated subjects.

2. Make sure your spelling is correct because you'll lose marks for mistakes.

3. Get a list of vocabulary for each writing task.

4. You need to work on complex sentence structures to get a good score.

5. Linking words are very important. It would be best if you showed the examiner the range of linking words to connect each of your sentences.

6. Use paragraph clearly.

7. Avoid copying whole sentences from the questions.

8. Start your preparation early and make sure you keep track of your progress.

9. Always listen to news and documentaries on various topics in English, also read books.

10. If possible, seek professional guidance and ask for feedback to improve the weak areas.

11. Excercise with full-length tests under realistic situations for several weeks before the test date.

 

Hope this helps you!

Undoubtedly it will impact your band because you did not answer what was required of you. It will be understood as you did not comprehend the question.

IELTS is a popular English language proficiency test conducted multiple times in a year for global migration and higher education. It has 4 modules viz. Writing, Reading, Listening and Speaking. Coming back to your question, the IELTS speaking exam is recorded for several reasons. Some of the reasons are:

 

1. Security: Recording the test ensures integrity and helps maintain transparency. This can prevent any unethical or banned activities such as partiality, bribery and more from taking place. Overall, recording the speaking section will make sure the test run fair and square.

 

2. For Evaluation: The test-takers save a copy of the recording which they can revisit, in case the student wants a reevaluation. This can be done when there is a huge discrepancy between the scores.

 

3. For examiner: Examiners are evaluated multiple times a year to see how they conducted the test and if the score they gave was accurate to the standardized method. IELTS Speaking recording also helps them ensure that examiners are sticking to prescribed practices.

 

4. Training: The British Council offers training to every examiner before they are given the jurisdiction to conduct IELTS exams. Hence for training purpose, these recorded videos come in handy. 

 

This approach ensures better transparency in the system and can help examiners improve their skills. It can also help the examiners evaluate without having to depend on their own memory.

 

Hope this helps!

Without knowing the work, it will be hard to comment. However, coming to the duration of the reviewing process, it takes around 6-8 weeks max. And even if the outcome is also the same as now, you might miss chances in applying for schools. But if you have doubts about the writing or speaking scores, you should go ahead for reviewing your scores.

 

If an experienced IELTS teacher or trainer has assessed you and your score is higher all the time, then this might be a valid reason to get a remark, but remember that not all IELTS teachers know how to assess IELTS tests accurately. You should go for review only when you’re 100 percent sure. 

 

To know when to go for a remark, explore the points below

If one of the other skills is two bands higher, you will automatically get a remark in the local test centre. This means the examiner and senior examiner have already assessed the test, and it is doubtful that another examiner will have a different opinion. 

 

Not understanding the question correctly and not reaching the word limit while writing is some of the points you might not want to apply for remarking.

 

Hope this helps!
