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!

It's not just about IELTS; you should prepare for any exam as early as possible. It's better to not mug up at the last minute, especially when it comes to tests like IELTS, where you need to learn all the grammar and new vocabulary in advance.

 

Many students learn the fine points of English grammar, but they often find themselves at a need when it comes to having a conversation with native speakers. In reality, the best way to improve English fluency is by speaking a lot. 

 

Regarding improving English speaking skills, don't forget that listening is the basis for speaking! When you also want to practice speaking, here are some recommendations on how to improve English speaking skills.

 

  1. It's advantageous to have native speakers around to practice with. Students who are living nearby many English speakers may find this opportunity. If not, joining a club or a volunteer organization can be a great way to know people informally.

 

  1. If that isn't an option, consider hiring a private tutor who could help you clear all your doubts. Another way to enhance your English speaking skills is to involve yourself in English as fully as possible.

Hope this answer is helpful to you. All the best!

There are many people who are not talkative like you, but eventually, you have to speak in IELTS speaking test to crack this test. Otherwise, there is no way out. If you don't speak just because you're not talkative, then you're far from achieving your desired band score, and that doesn't sound right in any way. 

 

So, the best way out is to practice speaking as much as possible. It is always helpful to have English speakers around to converse. In reality, the only way to improve fluency in speaking is by listening, and then practising. 

 

The following are a few tips for improving English speaking skills.

  1. Listening is the basis for speaking! 
  2. Talk to people around in English to enhance your English speaking skills. To involve yourself in English as entirely as possible is essential to improve your speaking skills. 
  3. You should prepare for IELTS as soon as possible. It's better to not mug up at the last minute, especially when it comes to the language tests such as IELTS, PTE etc. 
  4. You can seek experts' guidance by hiring an IELTS trainer. Skilled trainers provide personalised attention and customised lessons that could help you boost your performance. 

 

All the best!

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.

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!

It is to be noted that the Canadian universities can consider up to 4 backlogs or five at max in your undergraduate. But, you should have a minimum of 70% minimum score. Although there are exceptions, some universities do accept applicants with 7 to 8 backlogs as well. Even with a cut off of 65 % in the undergraduate score. 

 

The New Zealand universities will accept four backlogs from international students. Having stated that some of them might not even recognise the application even with one backlog and some of them agree with more backlogs.

 

Coming to the letter of recommendation, You should have a very strong Letter of recommendation (LORS ) from highly qualified professors preferably from doctorate holder. This helps when you are applying for foreign colleges or universities. 

 

But it is advised to not get disappointed if you’re rejected by some of the top universities because there are chances of getting rejection too. Instead, you should try applying for the universities in Ottawa and such. If you aim to do MS in Canada, then you might get a seat in RR University, Cape Breton University and more. So, be smart, stay calm and optimistic about things. 

 

Best wishes for your journey ahead.
