Wow ive just taken my second ielts test today and how stressful was that! Im really unsure about how that exam really tests an english persons level of english especially in respect to the reading section which is really open to interpretation.

Oh well two weeks to wait for the results, but i just want to say for anyone that is also taking the exam or has already taken it, the administrator at the ielts centre did mention to me something that i didnt know about.

I shall try and make this clear;

If you have taken an ielts exam and passed all aspects of it apart from one or two areas such as reading and listening, but then take the exam again and passed in these areas the but then failed in an area that you'd already passed initially - then the Australian nursing board will accept both ielts papers together so that all aspects have been passed - make sense?
