IELTS Article - Beware of poor tips!

Wednesday, January 9, 2013


In order to work as a doctor in the UK, a Thai candidate who sat for IELTS (International English Language Testing System) needed a minimum score of 7.0 in each skill area (listening, reading, writing and speaking).

Though the doctor got an overall band score of 7.5, he only got 6.0 for speaking. This meant he had to do the exam again. His outstanding band scores in the other skill areas (two 8.0s and a 7.5) suggested he should have done better than 6.0 in speaking.


The doctor was puzzled as to why his speaking test result was so low. I was, too, as his spoken English seemed better than average. His grammar was excellent, he could express his ideas and feelings well, he appeared to have a wide vocabulary, and he spoke fluently.
