IELTS Test Components
The test has 4 components even as the total time taken to complete the test is 2 hours and 45 minutes.
The IELTS Reading test contains 40 questions. Each correctly answered question fetches 1 mark. Therefore, the maximum score you can achieve is 40. A band score ranging from Band 1 to Band 9 is then awarded on the basis of this score.
Time Required: 60 minutes
When marking the Writing section of the test, examiners use detailed assessment criteria which describe written and spoken performance at each of the 9 IELTS bands. Examiners give a band score for each of the 4 areas: Task Achievement (for Task 1), Task Response (for Task 2), Coherence and Cohesion, Lexical Resource and Grammatical Range and Accuracy. These 4 are given equal-weighted. The writing component consists of 2 parts, one is Academic and the other one is General. Most students opt for the Academic pattern which is a bit tough, but in the General IELTS, the candidate has to undergo a Letter writing session. Task 2 carries more weightage in your final band score than Task 1. 1. Remember: illegible handwriting will reduce your final score.
Time Required: 60 minutes
Examiners award a band score for each of the 4 criterion areas: Fluency and Coherence, Lexical Resource, Grammatical Range and Accuracy, and Pronunciation. These 4 get equal weightage. There are three parts of the test and are in the form of an interview. The interview will most probably seem like a friendly conversation that typically covers some aspects of your past, present, and future situations.
Time Required: 11 to 14 minutes
The test has 40 questions. The listening materials are recorded on a cassette tape/CD/DVD and you will get a chance to hear it just once. When the recorded material ends you will have just 10 minutes to copy your answers into the answer sheet.
