Finally my second IELTS result is out, same result but different scoring pattern.
This is what I got previously..
I thought I did very well in the listening this time but aiksss… How come such result? I’m expecting a band score of above 8! Maybe it’s too easy this time around until they adjusted the scale.
As expected… Reading was bad, writing wasn’t very confident too. Ended up, I got 6.5 for reading, fell from the previous 7, I couldn’t complete section 3 and I was expecting the worst. There’s nothing change for writing, what a relief ;p However, still not satisfied but I knew I didn’t do well in it that time.
Speaking improved 1 band, quite happy with it because the topic given to me was the one I did prepare for! So lucky! I saw the topic the night before the test and prepared for it. On that day itself, I was hoping I won’t be getting that topic but I ended having it. Luckily I had prepared the necessary answers for it. Phew… I have no idea why I’m always given with such difficult topic or topic I’m not well-versed in. Good thing I saw this topic and took the trouble to prepare for it. I thought of skipping it some more! Thank goodness.
The average is 7 but still not all 7. At least, this time it’s nearer to the requirement. Good thing for the rounding up, else it’ll be below 7! However, the previous one got an average of exactly 7, no rounding up required all thanks to the listening part. So, I have no idea whether to say there’s improvement or not. No matter what, plan has to be changed and I have my backup plan ready.
Oh well… I don’t want to stress myself too much about IELTS anymore. That’s my English standard so just accept it. I don’t want to resit anymore, it’s not feasible at all.
