IELTS Listening (contd)

The IELTS listening test last 30 minutes and consists of four sections, each with increasing difficulty. Before the test begins, the examiner will play a pre-test tape. This is the time for candidates to adjust their earphones to the volume that they are most comfortable with. There should be no question of the ear phones not working because the equipment are usually tested by technical staff before the exams.
There is also no basis for the sound being unclear since the tapes are professionally produced unless of course, there is an oversight. If a candidate is unhappy, he or she can address the problem in the feedback form that is given at the end of the writing test. If you are unhappy with your results, you can ask for it to be reviewed. However, to do that you have to pay a fee.
